Oseloka H. Obaze (OHO) on the role of the Nigerian Intelligentsia

“We must transcend our collective and individual comfort zones to speak up when things go wrong or are going wrong. We must speak truth to power. We must not accept, for the sake of getting along and belonging; or for gratuitous handouts, when governance is shoddy and does not pass the litmus test of transparency, ethics and accountability- all hallmarks of good governance.”
