Professor of political economy, Pat Utomi has stated that Nigerian politicians are scared of the scream of the young people for a new Nigeria that will work for all Nigerians.
“Nigerian politicians are only connected to the deal they can make without any commitment to the people.”
Speaking during interview with channels television, Utomi expressed great optimism in the 2023 general elections, saying the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s movement will change Nigeria.
Utomi noted that the goal of the Labour Party’s sensitization tour is to address what makes democracy work.

Nigeria’s democracy is not working because of the transaction costs that are involved, many are concerned with what they will gain for themselves when in power and not what they will be able to give to the people they serve.
According to the Professor, this is one of the reason Nigeria is where it is today, crippled, in shambles, despair, desolation, in spite of great potentials that lies within.
Nigerian politicians are so connected to the deals they can make rather than the service of the people.
