Okowa meets Obasanjo, says Nigeria’s situation worrisome

Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, on Tuesday, held a closed-door meeting with former President Olusegun Obasanjo at the former President’s penthouse, Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.

Obasanjo’s Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Akinyemi, disclosed this in a statement after issued after the meeting.

Akinyemi quoted the governor as saying that former leaders and all stakeholders, including the country’s traditional rulers, should be consulted in finding a lasting solution to the insecurity and economic situations troubling the country.

Okowa was said to have lamented that the need for consultation has become necessary, because the situation in the country was getting very troubled.

He was quoted to have submitted that the troubled situation “has the capacity to destroy our economy, which is not in our best interest.”

The governor added, “The country has to come together, all well-meaning people, all stakeholders must come together to think Nigeria first. We need the collective efforts of all at this period.”

“This is something that is threatening the fabric of our unity and not something we have to play with. The situation is getting worrisome and it’s time we all have hands on deck to be able to find solution.”
