Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi West) has stressed that Nigerian leaders including himself must repent and deal with the problem of hunger and poverty currently ravaging Nigeria.
He made this known on Wednesday while sharing a video of him speaking at The Osasu Show Symposium held in Abuja.
The lawmaker wrote on his official tweeter handle @dino_melaye that ”Nigerian leaders including me must repent and sincerely deal with hunger and poverty. Nigerians deserve better.”
Speaking at the symposium, Melaye said, ”When you speak the truth, you die, when you lie, you die; so it is better to speak the truth and die. I may sound very unpopular but I will speak the truth. Apart from militocracy, politics is responsible for poverty and hunger in Nigeria.
Unfortunately, we the leaders, myself inclusive, have failed this nation and have failed the younger generation, myself inclusive. The reason why we are where we are today is beacuse there is a disconnect between leadership and followership.
