Former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, has lamented the increasing state of insecurity in the country.
Peter Obi, a former Vice Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was reacting to the mass protest organised on Sunday by the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria.
Speaking at the sidelines of an international business conference organized by Nigeria, America Business Forum (NABF), the former governor commended the Catholic Church for drawing National and Global attention to the worsening security situation in Nigeria.
According to a statement from Obi’s media office in Abuja, Obi said the protest shows the Bishops patriotic level of concern on the challenging situation in the country.
He noted that nobody will be willing to invest in an unsecured or lawless environment, hence the need to address the security situation.
Peter Obi said foreign investment is desperately needed to reboot Nigeria’s declining economy and create employment for her teeming unemployed youth.
He said that unemployment situation in the country is so frightening and any nation who cannot engage it’s teeming educated youths surely will have issues with social vices like crimes and criminalities.
