Prominent economist, Professor Pat Utomi has said that Nigeria has a lazy political class.

Utomi made the remark on Wednesday, April 13, 2016, during a media conference in Lagos.

“We have a lazy political class that is not visionary enough to see the need to reposition the country in the right policies that will shore up growth and stability in our economy without the sense of playing selfish,” he said.

“The play in this is such that corruption has created a custom of people with money without the thought or foresight to create jobs for its citizens.

“The government is more responsible for aborting progress than enhancing development for her country,” he added.

Utomi contested the 2011 presidential elections on the platform of the Social Democratic Mega Party (SDMP).
