I have always believed that it is the height of mental laziness to reject ideas because they come from an All Progressives Congress (APC) or Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) person.
In the open letter, he decried the fact that most politicians reject advice, because it is coming from someone from the oppositon.
He said "Yet, now is the time for well meaning Nigerians to speak up and articulate ideas to the president and his ministerial nominees on what steps they could take to improve their chances of success at turning around Nigeria. I have always believed that it is the height of mental laziness to reject ideas because they come from an All Progressives Congress (APC) or Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) person. That type of behaviour ushers in silly season in politics and business."
He also said "I mean, Nigeria’s economy is tanking. Our economy could even be said to be sick. Anybody that fails to see this may be living in denial. Does a sick man reject the cure for his sickness because his doctor is PDP or APC? I think not. So I urge the government and the party in power to have an ear to the ground and soup up advice."
"Who knows where the solution to our economic situation will come from? On my own part, I would offer some advice to the president and his would-be cabinet on little things that they can do to build a better working relationship amongst themselves and between them and the Nigerian people. My advice may be small, but I would urge my readers not to underestimate the big difference small changes make," the Senator said.
