The type of the political elites, forming political parties in Nigeria, has been described as a reflection of the groups of people in the country.
This was made known by a political scientist, Professor Dhikrullahi Yagboyaju while answering questions on political party primaries on the BCOS television breakfast programme, AM120.
According to him, Nigerians as a people, cannot continue to plant cocoyam and expect to harvest plantain.
He noted that the political problems facing the country today started gradually, and gathered to become major challenges stressing that Nigeria is still in the learning process and should expect to experience teething problems.
On the roles of delegates in the present political dispensation, professor Yagboyaju explained that delegates have critical roles to play in the system of government adopted by the country, emphasising that Nigerians would have to discredit money politics.
Also featuring on the programme, a socio-political commentator, Dr. Samuel Babalola observed that the rate at which politics is being monetised, it is not likely Nigerians would get value from the present democratic governance.
According to Dr. Babalola, it is time to demonetise politics and embrace virtues of equity, honour, fairness and honesty to enable the country to witness tangible changes.
