The Presidential Aspirant of the Social Democratic Party ,Prince Adewole Adebayo has charged the youths to take over the politics and economy of the nation .
Adebayo made this known while speaking at the flag-off of the Economic Consultative Forum and book launch in Abuja.
According to Prince Adewole, “ For the economist who are here, I might have simplified or over simplified your profession but if you ask me I will let you know that the economy and politics of Nigeria is in your hands and I don’t want you to pretend that you have a leader .
In furtherance, he claimed that the country’s chronic instability has endured because individuals in positions of authority want it to serve as a distraction for citizens while they pillage the government coffers.
The attitude of its political leadership was to run the state more of an economic entity while it deliberately frustrates efforts to harness her economic potential for the public good as demanded in section two of the Nigerian Constitution to attain the greatness that it was naturally endowed to become globally.
Adewole said most problems that we face in society have to do with economics.
In a motive to sell his agenda if he elected, Adewole urged Nigerians to be ready to partner with his vision that would lift the nation by reworking the concepts of the state following the dictates and expectations of the Nigerian Constitution as against leaving the nation to be run as an economic entity set to serve the interest of a few persons in power.
“I will deal with Nigeria as an economic entity. As an economic enterprise. Why is Nigeria an economic enterprise? Making a lot of income but declaring a loss? Nigeria is like a bank that every year collects a lot of money and they declare a loss every time no matter what happens they declare loss but those who are managing it are getting richer. That has to change.”
