Former governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi has described Nigeria under President Muhammaadu Buhari as a failed state.
Mr. Obi said this in Abakaliki during the 2017 independence anniversary lecture held at the Akanu-Ibiam international conference centre.
The former governor regretted that Nigeria had no qualified leadership to revitalize the economy of the country. According to him, the country was still operating in the past.
He attributed the upsurge in agitation of youths, especially the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and others across the country to poor leadership exhibited by Buhari.
“For me, the country has failed, If anybody tells you that Nigeria is doing well, tell them it is a lie; they said that we are out of recession but almost all Nigerians are still feeling greatly the impact of recession”, Obi said.
