Says ‘ it’s absurd ‘
Oba Idris Kosoko has accused state governors vying for the senate after two terms of eight years as unserious and height of absurd.
The Oba who was a former member of the House of Representatives, said the bane of our problem is that we recycle leaders.
Speaking in a recent interview, Oba Kosoko maintained that he was not happy seeing former governors contesting for the senate.
“One major challenge I see is the recycling of old politicians, maintaining positions back-to-back. I am not happy with former governors running for senatorial election.
“A governor, for instance, is the controller of a state under which senators, federal House and state Assembly operate.
“It doesn’t make any sense, having governed a state for eight years, you stoop low to vie for a senatorial position.
“It’s absurd. You know the state laws. Which law are you going to make again? I will advise ex-governors to sit back and play advisory role and allow upcoming ones to take over.” He said.
It will be recalled that nearly all the state governors who have completed their two terms of eight years and contesting for the senate in their various states.
From Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state and Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo state and Rochas Okorocha of Imo state. The list is endless.
