Former Presidential Candidate Pat Utomi has blamed Nigeria’s past leaders for the current economic hardship.
“Nigeria inflicted recession on itself through the bad behaviour of previous governments,” he said.
“It was the result of an elite that is too lazy to restructure the economy. Our leaders are lazy and they always want the oil price to rise,” he said.
He then challenged youths not to emulate the present crop of “mentally lazy elite that are not ready to build their country.”
He spoke at the Emerging Leaders Conference in Lagos on Friday.
