The National Leader of the pan-Yoruba socio-political association, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti has expressed his regret over the current state of Nigeria.
Fasoranti, who spoke at his 97th birthday ceremony, held at his residence in Akure, the Ondo State capital today, said the current Nigeria was not the Nigeria of his dream, reports Daily Independent.
He said, ”I feel fulfilled, I have seen it all, I’ve seen the worst and I have seen the best. I lost my wife, I lost my daughter, she was shot dead but generally, I have to thank God for everything.”
“This is not the Nigeria of my dream. No! Things are getting worst, we only hope those we are leaving behind will try and do their best because what we are seeing now is not good for the country at all.”
On his expectation from the next government to be formed by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the nonagenarian said “My expectations from the incoming government are many but I want the government to give priority to unemployment, people are not gainfully employed and things getting worst every day.
“I hope the government will try and look into it and also the security of the land. The government should also look into the restructuring of the country and I hope the new President will do it, ” Fasoranti said.
