The former Minister said Buhari’s administration has become known for all the negatives developments including killing, youth unemployment and poverty, saying if he was satisfied with the state of affairs in Nigeria, he would not have been vying for the presidency.

The two-term governor of Ondo State stated this on Monday while featuring on an interactive programme in Abeokuta FM tagged: ‘Fact Finder’ monitored by newsmen.

He said: “If I were satisfied with the current affairs in this country I would not be running for president.

“I believe we are in the state of anomie in this country. Never in this country, we have found ourselves in the preferential challenge, never in the history of this country has our unity been threatened, never in the history of this country have lives been so devalued. It’s killings, killings and killings every day.

“Killings from Fulani herdsmen/farmers clash, killings from Boko Haram insurgency, killings from road accident. Even our women die in pregnancy. The chances that pregnant women will die are highest in Nigeria in the whole wide world.

“We have suddenly become poverty capital. I don’t think things are going right in this country. The rate of unemployment is very challenging.

“Some of us decided that we must stand up because we care to challenge the state of affairs in this country.”

The former governor who has defected from one party to another in the last three years blamed his defections on internal sabotage and infractions from the parties he had dumped, insisting that he has always been consistent with his political ideology.

The former governor had sometime in June formally dumped the PDP to rejoin the Labour Party.
