Pat Utomi reacted to the nation’s current economic state by saying that when individuals are committed to finding a solution, you will notice that the problem is central to their thoughts and behavior.

He said, “In 1977, oil prices dropped, and there was a young soldier, called (Olusegun) Obasanjo who was the head of state, he had enough common sense to realise that this was impacting the wealth of the people.”

Further talking, he said, “So, he (Olusegun Obasanjo) began to say things like, ‘We must cut our cloth according to our cloth, not according to our size.’ He ordered a low profile; the highest that the head of state could be riding was a Peugeot 504. Now, we are in a worse time in Nigeria’s history in terms of the welfare of Nigerians.”

Pat Utomi said that the Nigerian people should check the motorcade of their president, and National Assembly members, and tell him who acted more like a politician; whether Olusegun Chief Obasanjo, the soldier, who was young, or the 80+ years politicians, who have been around for so long.

He added that the disconnection between the political class, and the people is now complete.

He said, “The people are a joke, that is why they could be asking, ‘Should we let them breathe ?’ And when these things happen, it is easy to joke about it, but check the history of Eastern Europe, and see how it ended.” CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
