|Orji Kalu,not a fan of the sleepy old men.|
Orji Kalu,the former Abia State governor has blasted the 1st generation politicians of Nigeria,calling them sleepy old men in a sly dig at the amount of those at the National Conference in Abuja who had regularly fallen asleep while the conference was on.
He said, “The present crop of leaders seems to be failing the nation and the people are becoming increasingly doubtful if indeed we have leaders. To worsen matters, the first generation leaders are still mostly the ones calling the shots. If you go through the National Conference delegates’ list, you will be amazed by the number of men in their 80s still trying to
determine the type of future that is suitable for the millennium generation. What fresh ideas can these sleepy old men offer on the way forward? There can be no credible leadership until these men begin to gradually withdraw and allow the younger generation to take charge.”
