Former President of the Senate, Ken Nnamani, has cautioned politicians in the country against desperation for position and relevance.
Nnamani spoke to State House Correspondents after leading a delegation from Integra Capita Limited, to a meeting with the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday in Abuja.
He advised politicians to seek other means of livelihood aside politics, saying “desperate politicians do desperate things’’.
According to him, the problem with Nigeria’s politics is that people entered it without having ‘second address.’
“I am here strictly on business; they are talking about millions of dollar investment in Nigeria and that tells the confidence this company has in our country.
“I am here just to observe how receptive the government is to this; the government is quite receptive, according to the vice president, because they have made other investments in Nigeria and they are continuing to do so.
“I am not just a politician; I was in business before entering politics so I have a second address.
“My suggestion to Nigerians who are struggling in politics is to make sure they have second addresses
“Do not be a desperate politician; desperate politicians do desperate things and we can see the examples,’’ he said.
