Nigeria’s economy on life support, says Peter Obi

A former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has said that country’s economy is on life support due to the rising debt which he said amounted to N22.7 trillion.

Obi also disclosed that the unemployment rate was 60% orchestrated by bad governance, stressing that if 50 per cent of the country’s revenue is used to settle such debt Nigerians will continue to groan.

He stated this at the 2018 This Generation Conference organised by the Summit Bible Church, with the theme ‘Taking Responsibility, Making Nigeria Great,’ on Saturday, in Abuja.

He further implored voters to weed out people who lacked the technical know-how to revamp the economy and render good services.

According to him, “Our educational system is too low. Our per capital is 2000. And since your growth population is higher than the growth of your GDP the consequence in the future will be higher than what it is today.”
