A former Minister of Education, Dr Obiageli Ezekwesili, has slated that “Everything seems to have fallen apart”.
Ezekwesili who made this known during an appearance on Sunday Politics on Channels TV warned that Nigeria is edging closer to collapse and the leaders must act to prevent that from happening.
“Initially, I kept saying that we were a fragile country. Now, we are fast-heading towards the threshold where you have a state collapse and we can’t stand watching while that happens,” For her, the signs captured in the definition of state collapse are now present in the country. This, she explained, involves looking at the security situation, the economy, social cohesion and political stability.
“When these four things are in the negative then you are fast-heading towards what is known as state collapse,” she said.
Dr Ezekwesili, who is also a former Vice President of the World Bank for Africa, added, We practically have no institutions that are standing in their credibility at this time.”
She believes a first step towards reversing the situation in the country is for those in government to accept the signs.
“I think it is critical for people in government to accept that the country is certainly not in a good place at all,” she said.
