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 this 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, also claiming it’s becoming a ‘basket case’ economically.
He called for concerted efforts of all stakeholders towards “moving Nigeria from tipping over.”
Obasanjo further warned people beating drums of war and calling for secession, to remember that if Nigeria breaks into several nations, the citizens would still be neighbours and would need to interact with one another.
