Former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, has given the reasons why Nigeria is not working so well at the moment.
According to Peter Obi, that is because many individuals in various offices were recruited based on sentiment.
He said this on Wednesday as he joined Rivers governor Nyesom Wike to commission the just finished Internal Road Phase 2 in Isiokpo, Ikwere Local Government Area of Rivers State.
“The reason Nigeria is not working today is that people have been recruited based on sentiments,” Mr. Obi said, adding that this way of operating has to stop.
“If we have to recruit you to be local government chairman, governor, vice president, president, and minister, it must be based on capacity and competence, which are viable not what we are doing now and the country is collapsing”.
According to the former chairman of the Nigeria Security Commission, accountability in government is a very critical yardstick to determining good governance and to build the trust of the people.
