Spread The News



Dr. Omololu Victor Olunloyo, a former governor of Old Oyo State, has described Nigeria’s challenges as complex, saying that the judiciary, which should be the common man’s last hope, has frequently turned out to be the last disappointment.

The lively octogenarian, who is recovering from illness, shared his thoughts on Wednesday during an informal conversation at his house in Ibadan.

Baba Olunloyo (as his followers refer to him), who has uninterrupted first-class academic records in Engineering and Mathematics at St Andrews University, United Kingdom, believes the country urgently needs divine intervention to rid itself of the twin scourges of corruption and poverty.

He blamed the greedy political class and their followers for plunging the nation into avoidable woes.

“How can one know the answer to that? How to solve Nigeria’s problems..? I wish the answer was simple. I am a mathematician, an engineer, and a politician.

“I have also been a public servant of many years of experience. Yet, one cannot say this is the shortcut to solving Nigeria’s problems.

“But there is nothing God cannot do. Those in public office should always remember they are not there for stealing or self-enrichment. We can start from there.”
