Former Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, says he agrees with former President Olusegun Obasanjo that Nigeria is becoming a failed state and can crumble if nothing urgent is done to address the country’s challenges.
Fayose made this known on Saturday night in an Instagram Live Chat with the Chief Executive Officer, Ovation Media Group, Dele Momodu.
Saturday PUNCH had exclusively reported that Obasanjo at an event in Abuja said Nigeria was slowly becoming a failed state that urgently needed to be pulled from the brink of collapse.
The former President also stated that he had never seen Nigeria so divided, adding that many of the problems currently plaguing the country were due to the recent mismanagement of Nigeria’s diversity.
Reacting during the one-on-one, Fayose said though he usually won’t agree with Obasanjo on national issues, however, all that he said of the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), in 2015 were becoming reality.
The former governor, who said there was nothing personal between himself and Buhari, lamented the insecurity and rising debt profile of the country, saying “only God will deliver Nigeria”.
Fayose said, “Of all the Presidents, I don’t like Obasanjo ways, I tell you the truth; I don’t like his ways at all. Me and him we are not on the same page but Obasanjo is the only one-time Nigerian President that has helped this country here and there.
“The fact remains that if you look at the Obasanjo time, there are certain things he put in place, and don’t forget, he saved this country a lot of money. He saved this country a lot of money. These people have squandered all we have. The way Obasanjo brought it down, they have taken it up.
“That was why what Obasanjo said today (Saturday), in a way, I agree with him. We don’t normally agree but I agree with him.
“When I started talking about President Buhari, even you, Dele Momodu, criticised me. Even you, Dele Momodu was looking at a saint in Buhari. Today, most of you now should cover your faces in shame, that you gave Nigerians a wrong road and a wrong path. It’s regrettable.” [NN News]
