Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo has expressed that Nigeria is fast drifting into a ‘failed and badly divided state’ under President Muhammadu Buhari.
The former President expressed that this development is as a result of recent “mismanagement of diversity and socio-economic development of our country.”
Obasanjo made this statement while delivering a paper titled “Moving Nigeria Away From Tipping Over’ at a consultative dialogue in Abuja.
The former president expressed that he has never seen Nigeria as divided as it is currently.
He, however, called for concerted efforts of all stakeholders towards “moving Nigeria from tipping over.”
“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, he said
“And these manifestations are the products of recent mismanagement of diversity and socio-economic development of our country.
