Pat Utomi, a professor of political economy and management, has described politicians who spend more than 12 years in public offices as social parasites.
“You should come out of your hard work, make a difference for four to eight years and go back to what you do. If it’s not like that for you, you are a parasite to society. The characters making it difficult to make progress are social parasites who call themselves politicians.”
The Professor, who contested who contested for the Delta State governorship ticket under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019 made this comment on Saturday while being Intervied on ARISE TV.
“I despise people who live on politics. I think that people who make a career in life based on politics are doing society a disservice,” he said.
“I have said that nobody should hold public office for more than 12 consecutive years. You go from a commissioner to the governor, senator; you are a social parasite.
