Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Professor Chidi Odinkalu, on Wednesday said Nigeria is in “crisis” because there is ‘a catastrophe of succession of rulers from the same generation’.
Newsbreak.ng reports that according to Odinkalu, that class of leaders is taking Nigeria nowhere.
“The crisis of #Nigeria is the crisis of a succession of rulers from the same generation who reduced the long-term decisions required to move the country forward into a squalid sequence of cynical short terms to nowhere,” Odinkalu wrote on his known Twitter handle.
Odinkalu has been a staunch critic of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Deploying the social networking service Twitter mainly, the 54-year-old who is also a lawyer and writer laments about the situation in Nigeria.
