Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra, has said that Nigerian economy is on life support due to the rising debt profile of about N22.7 trillion.
Obi, disclosed this at the ‘2018 This Generation Conference’ organised by the Summit Bible Church, with the theme: “Taking Responsibility, Making Nigeria Great,” on Saturday, in Abuja.
According to him, the high unemployment rate was orchestrated by bad governance and if 50 percent of the country’s revenue is used to settle such debt Nigerians will continue to groan.
The former governor, who was the guest speaker implored voters to weed out people who lacked the technical know-how to revamp the nation’s economy and render good services.
