Public Sector Has Not Met Expectations Of Nigerians – Adeola Soetan
A member from the Grassroots Watch, Mr. Adeola Soetan has stated that the public sector has not met the expectations of Nigerians.
Mr. Adeola Soetan gave his viewsÂ on Channels Televisionâ€™s breakfast show Sunrise Daily, saying ”you donâ€™t expect performance when you donâ€™t have good leadership with qualitative characterâ€™â€™.
Mr. AdeolaÂ pointed outÂ that the public sector once performed well in Nigeria, during the old western region under the leadership of Chief Obafemi Awolowo when the resources of the region was used properly to achieve a common goal; free education, for example.
But now, heÂ added, the public sector has been handled by politicians and their representatives, ”where we believe everything should be stolen”.
He made a distinction between the struggling elites and the ruling elites, describing the struggling elites asÂ theÂ ordinaryÂ people who steal gold andÂ are taken to jail for 3 years while a another man steals trillions of naira andÂ is given bail by theÂ Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
