Nigeria has failed to make any appreciable progress compared to other countries in the world, because the best brains and most competent are not assuming leadership positions, Senate President, Abubakar Bukola Saraki has said.

He expressed this in an address at the 2016 Founders Day Lecture of the Kings College on Friday in Lagos.
According to him, other countries look for competent and most intelligent  people to fill sensitive positions, but Nigeria does the opposite.
“Our dear country Nigeria is so hugely blessed. But why have we remained rooted to one spot like a man running on a treadmill? Why have we failed to achieve the limits of our potentials, despite our rich endowments in human and natural resources?
“The answer, my dear Kingsmen, cannot be far-fetched. We are where we are today because we have failed to develop a system that ensures that only the best and the most competent of our citizens assume leadership positions.
“While other countries continue to ensure that only the brightest and best of their citizens occupy public positions, whether elective, appointive or even in the bureaucracy, the opposite appear to be the case in our country. While other people continue to hand the destiny of their country to men and women with Ivy-league credentials, we continue to wallow in mediocrity,” he said.
He posited that a combination of mutually destructive competition for power; pursuit of parochial interests no matter how defined, and utter failure of the elite to devise a vision of development and build a consensus around it; these have all conspired to ensure that those who have real contributions to make don’t even get to put a leg in the room.
