Motivational speaker and leadership coach, Fela Durotoye, has warned politicians ahead of 2019 general election, saying money will fail in the election year.
Featuring on Channels television, Durotoye said, “money will fail in 2019”.
He predicated his reason on the fact that, “people are now smarter and they now know that when politicians offer you money, they are offering you money to enslave you.”
The leadership coach noted that the status quo will be changed in 2019 because Nigerians have “woken up” and are no longer interested in being ruled.
According to him, Nigeria has up until now, experienced “rulership” as opposed to leadership.
He said, “The access to positions of authority and In some cases power, is determined by a few people who have a higher interest in themselves and their own select interest than they have in the interest of the general public.
“We have not seen leadership in Nigeria. What we have in Nigeria are not leaders, we have rulers and we have to call rulers for what they are.
“Nobody anywhere in the world has ever doubted the potential of Nigeria.
“We are blessed in natural resources but most importantly human resources. We are the largest black nation in the world.
“If you look at the map of the world, Nigeria is literally at the centre of the nexus of world trade. So if you look at it, not only do we have the capacity to maximise our resources, we should be the logistics and production base for the world but we have not yet seen that potential manifest and I believe that potential is not a blessing to a nation – Potential is a call to responsibility for every generation to maximize.”
