Elder statesman and a former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, has taken a swipe at Nigerian politicians for being selfish.
According to him, Nigeria’s politics lacks integrity because those who practice it were merely concerned about their personal interests.
Tsav made this observation yesterday in an interview with newsmen in Makurdi while reacting to the desperate moves by political parties to install their candidates during the 2019 general elections.
The former police boss said he was worried that the change so desired by the electorate might not make any meaningful difference in the country as the two leading political parties: PDP and APC, expected to produce winner of the presidential election, were still “one and the same in content.”
He said, “They don’t think about tomorrow, but what they can have today. So, the issue of change; all these politicians are the same. They move like the wind, they run to wherever the wind blows.
“But I think we should now work in the interest of the nation, interest of our children and the next generation. We should work in the interest of anything that can bring peace because there is no peace in this country.”
