Politics not a dirty game — Ganduje





The Governor of Kano state, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, on Thursday, called on intellectuals across the country to participate in politics towards rebuilding the nation.

He made the call at the public presentation of a book entitled, ‘Unfinished Greatness: Envisioning a New Nigeria’ by Ekiti governor, John Kayode Fayemi, in Abuja.

Ganduje argued that the active participation of intellectuals in politics and governance was key to building the desired nation.

According to him, the involvement of people with highly developed intellects in governance would help identify areas of convergence in the nation’s divergent politics.

He said, “It is always important for intellectuals to take active roles in politics, because they are great thinkers, make good forecasts, analyse conflicting issues and find out areas of convergence in divergence. In politics, there are conflicting variables.

“In fact, some people are advocating that governance should be only for intellectuals, but that is contrary to democracy. However, we have seen how important it is.

“Unfortunately, in developing countries, intellectuals are afraid of governance and delving into politics because they regard they regard politics as a dirty game, but politics is not a dirty game.”
