News Politics: A political affairs analyst, Azubuike Ihemeje, has lamented that politicians no longer engage in politics with the interest of the public at heart.

He also accused politicians of distorting and destroying core principles of politics.

Ihemeje, a lawyer, said politics, ordinarily, should be a means of rendering public service. But in Nigeria, it has been reduced to the interest of individuals or groups of politicians, who gang up to hijack power solely for their personal economic survival.

Ihemeje made this known while appearing as a guest during a roundtable discussion for the 2023 election in Port Harcourt, yesterday.

He called on the private sector to rise up to its role of employing the greatest number of people, with the aim of making political jobs unattractive, even as he expressed optimism that the nation would be restored of its core values.

He said: “To compound the problem, they keep recruiting more and more people into politics with the prospects of sharing the loots with them later. Elsewhere, the private sectors are the highest employers of labor, while government jobs are less and less attractive. But in Nigeria, government jobs have become goldmines.” Ihemeje added: “Since politics has became the only dependable means of financial liberation, every person now scrambles to slave for a political party, leader or system. Real freedom of choice has been diametrically circumscribed by the dictates of political leanings. Most people dare not make any informed decisions again, except that which has been determined by their political overlords.

“Nigerian politics is so peculiarly skewed towards government dependency, largely because the government itself does not need to think to raise money due to abundance of natural resources.” “Politicians sell oil on the international market and share the money within the several political offices they’ve created for themselves and their supporters. That’s why politicians in this part are grossly lousy, unimaginative, and void of any innovation to solve problems.”
