Former Governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari or any single individual, is not responsible for Nigeria’s problems.
Peter Obi, former governor of Anambra state, says it is wrong to blame President Muhammadu Buhari or any single person for the country’s problems.
Obi stated this on Saturday in Abakaliki, Ebonyi state capital, where he delivered a lecture on the nation’s 57th independence anniversary.
Speaking on the topic ‘Change and changing Nigeria through harnessing of investment potentials of Ebonyi State: yesterday, today and tomorrow’, he said it was time for Nigeria to shift its focus to solid minerals and embrace economic diversity.
OBi said the world was moving to an era of knowledge, while Nigeria still depends on oil “which is already destined to finish one day”.
“Nigeria should queue into sustainable development goals (SDG), not in signature. The country is there in signature and it is the only country that got involved in millennium development Gogl (MDG) and did not achieve one goal because as soon as we signed the signature, we threw it away and came here and started doing things wrongly,” Obi said.
