The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, wondered what Nigeria should be celebrating even when,Â at the very ripe age of 57, she is still lagging behind in all indices of development.
Speaking during the programmeÂ termed One Nigeria: Embracing Our Economy organised by the Dr. Tony Rapuâ€™s House Of Freedom Ministry to celebrate the nationâ€™s 57th Independent anniversary, Obi said that celebration presupposed that there were achievements recorded.
â€œYes, weâ€™re here to celebrate our nationâ€™s 57th Independent Anniversary but I ask, what are we really celebrating? Failure? Nigeria is a failed state,â€™â€™ Obi decried.
