My ex-classmate Usman Oladipo ‘languishing’ as general manager in Nigerian mediocre bank: Shettima



Mr Shettima’s recent remark cements his reputation as a politician who lacks tact in communicating an opinion without denigrating others.

Vice-president Kashim Shettima says the current lawmakers should count themselves among the luckiest and undeserving crop of Nigerians given that his former classmate, Usman Oladipo, who got awarded “the best-graduating student” of his 1991 masters degree programme was now “languishing” in a mediocre financial institution.

At the 10th National Assembly retreat in Ikot Ekpene, Akwa-Ibom state on Friday, Mr Shettima made the remark, cementing his reputation as a politician who lacks tact in communicating an opinion without denigrating others, even when they are not political adversaries or threats.

“We are the luckiest among Nigerians; we are not better than our next-door neighbour. Yesterday, I hosted my classmate from the University of Ibadan, the MSc class of 1991,” the vice-president said at the event.

In an attempt to make legislators understand the privilege of their positions and why they must work for the country’s progress, the vice president demeaned a former classmate and went as far as to divulge his identity.

The best-graduating student in my class was Usman Oladipo. Oladipo is languishing as a DGM in one mediocre bank. He was the best-graduating student, and that goes to show that we are here not because we are the best of the best,” he added.

Peoples Gazette could not immediately ascertain the financial institution with which the purported Mr Oladipo is affiliated.

The unguarded utterances by the vice president have drawn heavy criticism and regarded as uncouth for Nigeria’s second citizen.

Mr Shettima’s condescending remarks have so far run afoul to his claims of finding power to be an “humbling” experience.

“Power is a gift from God. We are going to spend more of our lives outside power than in power. Power to me is a humbling experience. Power should be used for the good of the people,” Mr Shettima, who has a notorious history of denigrating political colleagues and ordinary citizens, said.

Last year, as campaigning intensified for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary election, Mr Shettima flayed his predecessor Yemi Osinbajo as “a nice man” who “should be selling pop-corn, ice-cream” as he was not presidential material.

Additionally, he disparaged former Senate President Ahmad Lawan as a tomato trader who had no business running for president.

Although Mr Shettima later apologised for his crass remarks, many believed the apology was only an insincere afterthought following the heavy backlash from his party members and critics.

At the retreat in Ikot-Ekpene, Akwa-Ibom state, he urged the lawmakers to do their parts in making Nigeria work as a nation, given that the country’s progress was a win for the black folk.

“We are the representatives of our people, we are the representatives of the black men; that is the burden we carry. If Nigeria fails, the black man has failed, let us make Nigeria work,” he said.

And it is because fate have placed you on a different pedestal? There is this defiant arrogance which is characteristics of hardliners like Shettima who are so egocentric. This is how how He called VP Osinbajo "Mr Nice Ice-cream man."

What a disparaging and unstatemanly comment about a former colleague coming from the VP of an illegitimate government who rigged themselves in with the connivance of INEC.

It is either VP Shettima was envious of Usman Oladipo's brilliance while in school or he is pissed that Usman hasn't, like other former classmates, come to worship him and seek favours from him. Naturally, proud people hate being ignored. And now, his being VP afforded him an opportunity to get back at him. The statement sounds mean and he needs to apologize to Usman Oladipo immediately.

In alternative he should submit Usman Oladipo's name for an immediate juicy appointment as payment for image damage. grin

But on a serious note, VP Shettima needs speak with a lot more caution. DGM in a bank is a senior management position attained through years of legitimate professional work experience.

This people knows that what they are paying senior and junior workers in both private and public sectors is appalling and pitiable

It is an eyesore that's why he made this statement. Imagine Nigeria min wage is $30! Just 30k for goodness sake. Professors and the bank manager salary this VP is dissing around is 400-500k!

Should b nothing less than 2m

It seems Shettima has a low IQ, does he expect all his ex-classmates to be VP?
The first class graduate is languishing in a local bank while he himself is a billionaire courtesy of the corrupt system of politics we have. He should keep shut because all he has, he got from politics.
He just buttressed the point. A nation where the sole measure of success is based on the amount of wealth one has is certainly heading for doom as everyone will do anything possible to amass the wealth.
Nigeria is a case study, many are now into rituals and all forms of evil just to amass this wealth in order not to be seen as failures.

I love Shettima's statement acknowledging that he and his fellow political office holders are just lucky to be our leaders, not that they are better than the masses.

However, that your statement of a DGM earning about 200,000 makes you look like a motorpack tout.

Are you MAD ni? Even I who left as just a Senior Banking Officer about 12 years ago, I was earning about 600,000 per month. Go and ask your friends who are luckier than you, they will tell you.

I would have taken d VP comment as a joke..
D DGM of even a tier 3 bank cannot be earning less than 1.2 M per month.. It is an accomplished position. So
1.What is d languishing in that?
2. Why should a politician be earning more than a bank GM?

Do you even know what it means to be a DGM? Is it the same as deputy branch manager? Is there even a post such as deputy branch manager? Shows that you are the mediocre here.
