Former Board of Trustee (BOT) Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Tony Anenih has stated that although there are corrupt persons in every society, not all Nigerian politicians are corrupt as some people think. He stated this at the launching of the book "Nigeria, Yesterday, Today" by Professor Godwin Sogolo at the Transcorp Hilton yesterday.
In his speech as the chief launcher of the book, Anenih said that every society had its own share of unscrupulous persons and that it was wrong to generalise that every person in that society was bad.
The Special Adviser to the Vice President on Political Affairs, Mallam Abba Dabo, who represented the Vice President, Arc. Namadi Sambo, commended the author of the book.
He said that the book chronicled the struggle of the country in the past and how it affects the present state of Nigeria.
He said that the present administration was doing its best to improve all sectors of the society and would appreciate the input of brilliant minds towards the growth of the country.
Former minister of information, Professor Sam Oyovbaire said the book was an example of a good debate which was lacking in Nigeria.
"This is what I call a good debate. There is no debate in Nigeria anymore. All there is in this country is quarrel. People keep quarreling with each other which does not help anybody." he said.
The book launch was very well-attended and saw representatives from various ministries and state governments.
