Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi has expressed that Nigeria isn’t working because people are recruited based on sentiment rather than on merit.
He stated this on Wednesday when he joined Governor Nyesom Wike to commission the Constructed Internal Road Phase 2 in Isiokpo, Ikwere Local Government Area of Rivers State.

He expressed that many offices in the country are occupied by people based on sentiments and this act is affecting the development of the country negatively.
“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.
He said, “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.”
