Former Cross River Governor, Donald Duke, has said “old people in government are usually disconnected from the realities on ground.”

Speaking at a symposium for governance and transparency organised by The Future Project on Tuesday in Lagos, Duke stated that former President Olusegun Obasanjo had a disconnect with the economic and political realities of the country.

He added that Obasanjo appointed his peers as Ministers and Advisers.

“There is a disconnect among old people in government and the realities on ground.

“Obasanjo for example, was disconnected with realities”, he said.

Duke also said Nigerians must begin to demand accountability from their leaders.
