President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday said more than 80 per cent of his advisers have nothing meaningful to offer him in terms of advice.
Jonathan said this in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, at a special funeral service for eight female politicians and their driver, who died in road accident on February 14.
They were said to be returning to Yenagoa from Port Harcourt in Rivers State, where they had gone to vista the First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan.
Speaking at the funeral in response to a remark by the Bayelsa State Governor, Henry Seriake Dickson President Jonathan said he had been experiencing this from his days as deputy governor of the state.
Henry Seriake Dickson had said at the funeral that he was advised against organising a state burial for the deceased.
“I am surprised when the governor (of Bayelsa) said some people asked why state burial.
“And I told the governor that more than 80 per cent of people who come to advice you have nothing to say.
“But just listen to them.
“From my experience as a deputy governor till today, more than 80 per cent (of advisers) have nothing to say.
“But you listen to everybody and do what is right for our people.”
Afterwards, Patience Jonathan in her tributes said the women’s death should bring about peace in Nigeria and Bayelsa State.
“The fact that they died the way they did indicates that death can come anytime. Bayelsans should see it as a sign for peace and unity in Bayelsa and Nigeria,” she said.
