dr-doyin-okupeThe Presidency on Monday debunked the description of Nigeria as a failed state saying the indices of a failing state were absent.

It, therefore, urged Nigerians to disregard comments by some eminent Nigerians that the country was sliding towards a failed nation.

Senior Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, stated this in Abuja.

It would be recalled that Eminent Nigerians, including Prof. Ben Nwabueze (SAN); Lt.-Gen. Alani Akinriade (retd.), Dr. Chukwuemeka Ezeife and Chief Solomon Asemota (SAN), had on Saturday, said only a constitutional conference was the pre-requisite towards saving the country from becoming a completely  failed state before 2015 general elections.

Okupe said indices in the country did not suggest in any way that Nigeria was becoming a failing state.

“A failed or failing state is where there is erosion of legitimate authority, where there is instability and the country cannot afford to provide public services like the provision of light, good roads, water supply and security services.

“In Nigeria, there is a serving national and states Assembly, providing quality legislative services and issuing out good and quality legitimate legislature for the good governance of the country and the states.

“There are guarantee laws and services in Nigeria, even in states of Borno and Yobe where there are security challenges caused by the likes Boko Haram” the President’s aide said.
