Ekiti Monarch Lambasts FG As, He Speaks On N100m Presidential Form
The Ogoga of Ikere Ekiti, Oba Adejimi Adu-Alagbado, has chastised the federal government for allowing presidential contenders to spend such large sums on acquiring the APC nomination form, despite the country’s economic situation.
The monarch stated at the Bamidele Olumilua University of Education, Science and Technology, Ikere Ekiti (BOUESTl), that the money spent on the nomination form could have been better spent on insecurity and reviving Nigeria’s near-collapsed education sector.
He thought it was absurd that some people could openly display such a large amount of wealth in a country known for its egregious poverty.
“Our politicians are buying nomination forms to contest at very high prices and the universities are not well funded, while researches are not being carried out. I believe this is bad and unfair.
“These monies can be used to adequately fund our universities, particularly giving our youth employment through research and innovation. Even, the security crises that we have today were because of our poor value system. We have to change our attitude.
“We must continue to say the truth because we will account for all our deeds. I am challenging this university to be different. We want to be seeing its impacts on this community in terms of development within the next 10 years.
“We can’t continue to buy things from foreign countries and expect our youth to get jobs. That is the reason why our university must do research, bring out innovations and give to local industries to make or manufacture their products”
