Banji Akintoye, said, as elder statesman Nigeria could only be great again when people who rule the nation would at last let go of their own hidden agenda and let the country develop.
The 82yrs elder statesman Akintoye told Punch that “Let us abolish the accumulation of power and resource control which the military did. Let us give each group of Nigerian the power, resources and ability to manage their own affairs so that we can again become a country given to productivity and prosperity and not a country indolently sharing money.”
, “As long as they (leaders) keep this petty born-to-rule idea and continue to distort and manipulate things in order to achieve that purpose, my fear is that it will not work. I hope that they will change. I hope that Nigeria will be revived. I hope that Nigeria will still fulfill its destiny in black Africa. I fear in fact that Nigeria will break up.he added”.
