The former presidential candidate of the African Democratic Congress, ADC, Kingsley Moghalu, has accused some of the country’s political elites of hypocrisy, saying they disregard equity and social justice.

This was contained in the statement he released on his verified Twitter account.

He wrote, “I understand politics is a game of interests. But if we look at the countries that are developed, we see that they did so by balancing interests with equity and justice. The economic interest of slavery had to give way to civil rights and justice, or else America would be a lie.

“In Nigeria, many so-called statesmen and leaders conveniently ignore equity but mouth off on “national unity”. This is a fundamental problem of nation-building in Nigeria. I am really troubled by it.”
