A professor of political economy and public affairs analyst, Pat Utomi, on Tuesday in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, insisted that with the outcome of primaries of various political parties in the country, there were strong indications that the forthcoming general elections in 2019 may not hold.

He said that one of the reasons the elections may not hold was that leaders in Nigeria have obsession to themselves, forgetting about services to the masses.

Utomi made these revelations while speaking during the 70th anniversary of Students Christian Movement (SCM) of University of Ibadan, entitled “Treating the Ailing Nation”.

He maintained that primaries across parties were the pointers that the general election might not hold as he declared that Nigeria was ailing for lack of love and compassion, decrying that people cannot find their voice.

Utomi said, “Can you take seriously any of the primaries that have taken place? We are going to have all kinds of troubles. People within parties will try to sabotage one another. This will spill over. The development might lead to postponement of the elections. The signs are not the best for our democracy”.

The former Presidential Adviser said the nation’s public sphere was captured by criminals and real armed robbers and ‘entrepreneurs’ of power.

He maintained that those who enter the arena of leadership were not people who have capacity to lead, adding that Nigeria would soon be considered as a dangerous state in the international community.
