Elder Statesman and Chieftain of Yoruba Socio-cultural group, Afenifere, while speaking in an interview with Daily Sun, on the state of the nation, said it is a miracle that despite the worsening situation in the country, people are still surviving.

He said the current covid-19 pandemic has exposed 'our nakedness' as a nation, and that the situation becomes even more hopeless when a struggling country is governed with nepotism with impunity.

He said, "The current state of the country is very unfortunate, we are in a very bad state, and things are getting worse. We were in a bad state before the COVID-19 pandemic – the medical, education, infrastructure, etc, everything was in bad shape.

"So when coronavirus came, it worsened things; there was no foundation to pick up unlike in other countries. It is now we are trying to put things that ought to have been there. We are even lucky over the level of disaster we have got; it could have been even higher. It’s terrible.

"The corona virus came to expose our nakedness, we only have to thank God for how He is saving us because where are we going to begin when we have the square pegs in round holes just because the right people are not from your village or tribe. You are doing nepotism with impunity.

"For the past months, years, all responsible people in this country have told him to restructure the country now, and he has not said a word, what type of leader is that or does it mean he is not hearing what people are saying and he is carrying on venially, he doesn’t care what people say."

Meanwhile, Covid-19 cases in the country has topped 7200 according to latest data from the Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC).
