Guest Speaker at the 2016 Silverbird Man of the Year currently going on at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre has advocated for State of Residence instead of State of Origin to make democracy work in Nigeria.

 

He spoke on Separation of powers saying that the country is not really operating democracy but another type of government he described as greediocracy.

 

To him what is going on in Nigeria is the “Government of the greedy by the greedy and for the greedy.”

 

He stated, “Government exists to serve the governed and not the people in government”. He called on Nigerians to speak up to entrench true democracy and separation of powers.

 

“Speak no matter whose ox is gored. If we refuse the separation of power, I call on Nigerians to separate us from power,” he said.

 

He ended the presentation with the “We shall overcome rendition”.
