This commentary was made while delivering a speech titled, ‘Moving Nigeria Away from Tipping Over’ at a consultative dialogue attended by representatives of Afenifere, Middle Belt Forum, Northern Elders Forum, Ohanaeze Ndi Igbo and Pan Niger Delta Forum.’
Obasanjo added that the Nigeria is turning into a ‘basket case’ economically.
The event was held in Abuja on Thursday.
“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.”
“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 up in greater fissures and with drums of hatred, disintegration and separation and accompanying choruses being heard loud and clear almost everywhere,” he warned.
Obasanjo reminded war evangelists beating the drums of war that even if the country breaks, the new nations will still be neighbors and will still need to interact with each other.
