Barr. Olumuyiwa Adu, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State, on Wednesday, revealed the rationale behind his exit from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Adu who left the opposition party a few months ago, stated that he resigned his membership of the party because PDP couldn’t put its house in order.
Adu, who revealed this during media interaction organized by Federated Chapel of the Ondo State chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in Akure, stressed that he was not ambitious but ready to serve the people.
He noted that his ingress into politics was a divine call from God to work for the interest of the people, adding that he won’t deviate from offering invaluable help to the needy.
He said “I am not an over ambitious person and I will never be. I am not ready to contest for any position for now, I want to work for the people, I am on my feet to see that much people are not shortchanged”.
“Everything is in God’s hands, I will do whatever my people want me to do, they will be the one to determine my next move. If I am being called to contest for any position, I can. I am a politician for everyone”.
“A leader is a servant and nothing more, he should see everyone as equal and sentiment should not be what a leader should consider. Philosophically, nobody is higher than another”.
He also expressed displeasure at the rising cost of governance in Nigeria, describing it as outrageous and inappropriate.
He added, “Nigeria should begin to think about addressing the issue of mental capability of elective office holders, physical capacity and procedures of handling things”
“It is childish to say that Akure belongs to only the people birthed in Akure. Akure is not meant for the indigenes alone, it is meant for everyone in Ondo State”
Advising the youths on the need to embrace hardwork, Adu said “I’ve been working to earn myself some money at a young age and I want people to learn that from me as well”
He, however, urged the government to frontally tackle corruption in Nigeria.
