Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State has described anger as one of Nigeria’s biggest problems.
The Governor made this known while speaking at the 54th Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Conference in Owerri, Imo State. While speaking on the topic, ‘Nigeria’s Biggest Problem: Corruption or Impunity?’ The Governor stated that while impunity and corruption remain part of the country’s problems, anger remains the greatest challenge facing Nigeria.
He observed that the Angry People’s Congress has provided a platform for aggrieved members of the PDP to defect to. According to Uduaghan, every Nigerian was angry to the extent that “five governors who were at a ceremony with the President walked out on the President and formed the Angry People’s Congress.” Continuing, he said, “One of the biggest problems we have in this country today is anger, we are angry with each other.” “When you are angry with the President, you join the APC, when you are angry with the governor, you join APC.
There is too much anger in the land and we need to deal with it,” Uduaghan said. Other speakers at the conference were Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, former Military Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, and Honourable Aminu Tambuwa, Speaker of House of Representatives.
