The immediate ex-governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, has decried the high level of hunger and poverty that Nigerians are passing through.
The former governor also accused the federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari of not doing enough to alleviate the sufferings of the people.
He gave the warning in an address at the Federal University, Ndufu Alike Ikwo (FUNAI) during the grand finale and presentation of awards to winners of a creative writing competition.
Obi urged youth across the country to show more interest in creativity to enable them realise their dreams and warned them to stop emulating the Nigerian leaders.
The ex-governor further warned that the country is living on borrowed time unless something drastic is done quickly.
People are hungry and we should join hands together to question our leaders to tell us what is happening in this country and making sure that the right things are done.
All of us, from 1960 when we gained independence, if we had done the right thing from then, it is not the question of PDP or APC. We have lived wrongly, we have done the wrong things and that is why the country is not growing.
If we don’t do anything now the country will collapse. Nigeria is living on a borrowed money. So, you see things are difficult in Nigeria and we need to change our society so that things will get better.
