All is Not Well With Nigeria – 94- Year – Old Pa Fasoranti
The Leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, Pa Rueben Fasoranti, on Friday, stated that the current status of the country is not the Nigeria of his dreams.
Pa Fasoranti, who expressed concern over the state of the country, emphasized that the issue of insecurity has continued to rear its ugly head as well as the menace of unemployment pervading the country with no solution in sight from those in authority.
The Afenifere leader stated this during the occasion of his 94th birthday held in Akure, Ondo State capital where his autobiography entitled “My Life, My Legacy (Service with Integrity and Excellence) was also unveiled.
Speaking at the event, which was attended by people across all walks of life, including former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State, his Ekiti State counterpart, Kayode Fayemi, the nonagenarian said at 94 years “I am still here with you because of the grace of God and even though as an individual I am fulfilled, I regret to say that all is not well with the country.
“No thanks to the insecurity of life and property, worsening unemployment of abIe-bodied citizens leading to all manners of crimes, threatening famine which is a conspiracy between mother nature and the ravaging of the land by ever-surging marauders and so on.”
