Nigerian politician Shehu Sani has said most Nigerian politicians are bereft of ideology and confidence in themselves.
Sani also said while parties are identified by the ideology they preach in advanced countries, “in Nigeria, it is about the alphabet.”
“Many parties in Nigeria are changing names so that they can have ‘A’ and be at the top of the ballot paper,” he said.
“It is all about having access to the electorate rather than the party going into a contest.”
“Today, we are where we are because other qualities of leadership are lacking.
“If we do not do the needful as far as Nigeria’s democracy is concerned, we stand the danger of this country plunging into crisis.”
The Senator also used the event to congratulate Adams Oshiomhole who recently emerged the party chairman of APC.
“I wish him (Oshiomhole) well but let me warn that he has a lot of work to do in order to keep the party afloat ahead of the 2019 polls,” he said.
“Firstly, I believe in Oshiomohle; I believe in his track record and I believe he is somebody who has the desire to put things right in the party.”
