Obasanjo Calls Nigeria A Failed State And A Basket case


Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, says Nigeria is slowly becoming a failed state and a basket case that needs to be quickly pulled from the brink of collapse.

He made the remarks while delivering a speech in Abuja titled ‘Moving Nigeria Away From Tripping Over’ at a consultative dialogue that was attended by the likes of Afenifere, Pan Niger Delta Forum, Northern Elders Forum, Middle Belt Forum, and Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo.

“I do appreciate that you all feel sad and embarrassed as most of us feel as Nigerians with the situation we found 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 world and socially we are firming up as an unwholesome and insecure country.”
