Orji Uzor Kalu, one of the wealthiest men in Nigeria, in an interview with Forbes said Goodluck Jonathan could become Nigeria’s the last president if not to solve problem with terrorism.

Orji-Kalu

The owner of one of West Africa’s largest companies, Slok Holding, believes that Nigeria could disintegrate like the Union Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) if the country don’t collaborate with foreign countries to end the war with Boko Haram insurgents.

Last year, he offered to negotiate with the Boko Haram sect on behalf of the Nigerian government. He believes he could have been able to strike a compromise with the terrorists and stop the bloodshed. The Nigerian government barely considered his offer. The government has declared on several occasions that it would never negotiate with terrorists, a decision Kalu believes is ill-advised.

“There was a time when news of bombing and terrorism was synonymous to countries like Iraq, Iran and Pakistan. Nigeria is now at that point. We are now like those countries. This is what we have become. If care is not taken, Goodluck Jonathan would be the last president we’ve had in this country.

“Jonathan might become to Nigeria what Mikhail Gorbachev was to the Union Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) when he presided over the disintegration of USSR. If we don’t take time and collaborate with foreign countries to end the war the insurgents are waging against the country, Nigeria, as we know it, might just cease to be,” Orji Uzor Kalu said at his sprawling mansion, which is located a few minutes’ drive away from the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, the official residence of Nigeria’s President.

Kalu believes the Nigerian government is not handling the current security crisis properly and has severally urged the government to negotiate with the terrorists.

He also said that apart from the thousands of lives that have been lost because of terrorism, the damage on Nigerian economy is irreparable. Businesses are shying away from Nigeria and jobs are being lost. Foreign companies that are eager to do business in this country don’t wont to get involved because of insurgency.
