Nigeria’s On A Free Fall – Ohakim

Ikedi OhakimFormer Imo State Governor, Mr. Ikedi Ohakim has blamed the country’s travails on public officers who according to him, wrecked and destroyed it.

Ohakim was speaking yesterday in Abuja at the public presentation of the book, ‘Delicate Distress: An Interpreter’s Account of the Nigerian Dilemma,’ written by a former Commissioner of Information in Imo State, Dr Amanze Obi.

The one time governor also described anger, blackmail, blame game and poor communication as the bane of the country.

According to him, “there is distress in this country. This is a country that is on free fall; this is a country where we have hypocrites. The country is descending down the cliff.

“Even if you bring Jesus to be president, the country is running down the cliff. In 1965, the only means of transportation in Dubai was carmel so why are we descending?

“We must bring people who can think. The only way we can develop this country is minding the way we market it.

“Is the structure in this country right? Are we running democracy? If we are, what kind of democracy are we running?” He asked.

The governor while stressing that Nigeria must be totally reformed added that “This country will not collapse. It is so solid.”
