Stealing government’s money, banditry and kidnapping are the only business striving in Nigeria – Peter Obi

Former Vice Presidential candidate, Peter Obi has revealed that the only venture that thrives in the country is stealing government’s money, banditry and kidnapping.

Speaking at the launch of a book titled, ‘Communication and Media Studies: Multiple Perspectives’, written by a former commissioner in Anambra Stella Okunna, the former Governor of Anambra stated that the country is not progressing because those who legitimately worked are being owed while those who “stole” are being paid off.

Obi said;

“How do we go and negotiate and pay somebody, a bandit, when we have not paid those who are working?
“You can’t pay people for banditry. The only business that thrives in Nigeria is stealing the government’s money, banditry and kidnapping — and that’s why your country is not progressing.
“We are owing those who have legitimately worked. And we are negotiating and paying those who have stolen kids. It is a criminal system.
“Lecturers are owed. How do we compensate those who have not contributed anything to the economy? The economy is not productive and that’s why it is failing.
“Nigeria will not succeed if we continue asking bandits to come to a meeting, and we are not calling professors to a meeting. That is why the country is where it is today. May God help Nigeria.
