Opinion: Politicians Should Learn From Uzor Kalu And Stop Playing Politics Of Hatred.

Politics today in Nigeria seems to be a thing of battle. If you are not in the same party, you become an enemy to the opposition. This is why politicians need to learn from the Senate Chief Whip, Senator Orji Kalu who did not allow his political difference with the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike stop him from commending the governor's good works.

The politics of negative criticism even when one is doing well has kept Nigeria the way it is today. It is therefore important for us to work together irrespective of our political differences for the growth of the nation. Today we in politics, if you are not in a party, even when you are doing well, your effort is been criticized and condemned. It is true that we need the opposition to make us balance politics, but we still need to speak good of a person when he is doing well no matter his party. Politicians should leave politics of bitterness and hatred and learn to play politics like Kalu.

Governor Wike remains one governor in Nigeria who is putting so much effort to give his state infrastructural development. Although he has his weaknesses when it comes to governance and can not be 100% good but his effort should be commended and is therefore not a mistake for Kalu to have said that the governor his doing well.

As you and I know, politics today is full of grudge and hatred for one another, especially between the top parties. If you are not in the same party, you are been seen as an enemy. No matter what you do, you'll still be accused of doing nothing. Politicians should learn to commend the effort of their fellow politicians when that person is doing well and constructively criticize when there is a need to do so. We should not allow our political difference stop us from working together to build the country. Our goal should be to better our state and nation and not our party.
