Buhari's administration has failed Nigerians and cause States to be divided – Obasanjo

President Muhammadu Buhari and Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has once more attacked the Buhari-led government, saying that Nigeria is slowly becoming a failed and divided state under this administration.

Obasanjo stated this while delivering a speech titled, ‘Moving Nigeria faraway from Tipping Over’ at a consultative dialogue attended by various socio-cultural groups including Afenifere, Middle Belt Forum, Northern Elders Forum, Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo and Pan Niger Delta Forum, in Abuja on Thursday, September 10.

The former President said he has never seen Nigeria more divided as it currently is under the Buhari-led government. He expressed sadness that Nigeria is additionally now the poverty capital of the planet .

I do appreciate that you simply all feel sad and embarrassed as most of us feel as Nigerians with things we discover ourselves in. 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 whole, 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 in greater fissures and with drums of hatred, disintegration and separation and accompanying choruses being heard loud and clear almost everywhere. he said

According to the former President, only self-deluded people would claim that every one is well in Nigeria. He knocked some politicians who are already in talks about the 2023 presidential election rather than fixing the matter the state already has.

I believe Nigeria is worth saving on the idea of mutuality and reciprocity and that i also believe it will be done through the method of dialogues instead of talking at one another or resorting to violence. it'll amount to dangerous and destructive self-delusion for anybody to say that all is well in Nigeria today.

Some people are enthusiastic about 2023, i think that with death, destruction, debt, disease, deceit, disbelief, disenchantment, doubt and suspicion around, we'd like to ascertain our way through to 2023 and beyond in some sort of unity of purpose, reasonable security, shared values, true democratic practice, inclusiveness and shared society. that's why we are here. No constitution is even permanent; it's dynamic with time and knowledge .he said.
