He tweeted:

As long as you, who are here attacking the government, don’t go into politics, you will sustain the Nigerian status quo, where illiterates govern the literates. Nigeria’s problem is that literates chase money in the private sector while illiterates chase power in government.

  1. It is sad to agree to this.
    But that is the truth.

    The literates and educated ones are scared of going into politics.
    Even the religious body has made it much more difficult by spreading the word ” politics is a blood game”

    But it is high time Nigeria choose the right person

  2. We absolutely believe this to be true, the dirty game of Nigerian politics have scared away the elites and made them focus on their lucrative business.Let the illiterates continue to rule.
