Ohanaeze Ndigbo has agreed with the position of the Financial Times of London that Nigeria is heading to a failed state.
The group, who spoke through Emeka Attamah, the Media Adviser to the President General, Chief Nnia Nwodo, said all indices of a failed state are currently manifesting in the country.
He said: “Financial Times is a reputable magazine and before they write anything, they must have their facts. It is an incontrovertible reality that the nation is sinking fast.
“The wheel of governance is grinding to a halt and we are still chasing shadows. All indices of a failing state stare everybody in the face, a terribly insecure country, a bleeding economy, a bludgeoning corruption level, a convoluted political system where courts have become electoral umpires and a faceless Presidency.
“Whatever are we getting right in this country? Let us not continue to deceive ourselves. Until states or geopolitical zones are allowed to harness and develop their natural endowments for the good of all, until this country undergoes restructuring, it will continue to sink deeper and deeper into quicksand.”
