Nigeria Becoming A Failed Country, Divided Under Buhari – Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo on Friday noted that Nigeria under the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government is becoming a failed nation and divided.

Obasanjo reveal this while delivering a speech titled, ‘Moving Nigeria Away from Tipping Over’ at a consultative dialogue attended by representatives of Afenifere, Middle Belt Forum, Northern Elders Forum, Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo and Pan Niger Delta Forum.

He stated that the country needs to be rescued from the brink of collapse, adding that the country is becoming a ‘basket case’ economically

He said:

Today, Nigeria is fast drifting to a failed and badly divided state; economically our country is becoming a basket case and poverty capital of the world, and socially, we are firming up as an unwholesome and insecure country.

And these manifestations are the products of recent mismanagement of diversity and socio-economic development of our country.

Old fault lines that were disappearing have opened up in greater fissures and with drums of hatred, disintegration and separation and accompanying choruses being heard loud and clear almost everywhere.

individuals calling for war should remember that if Nigeria breaks into several nations, the citizens would still be neighbours and would need to interact with one another.
