He disclosed this while unveiling the book titled, ‘The Scars of Our Generation Perspectives on Racism,' Premium Times reports.

He said:

“Most Nigerian leaders do not know their history; the leadership recruitment process is highly flawed. And that is why when people get into power, they don’t understand the problems confronting their people.”

In another development, Abaribe said the 2023 general elections may not hold if the current security crisis in the country is not effectively tackled.

Ababribe made this known in an interview published by Daily Sun on Saturday, April 17. He said nearly all parts of the country are no longer safe, even the southern region which had earlier been relatively peaceful.

The senator said:

"The most important thing today is that, we don’t know if the 2023 general elections will be possible or hold. People have been talking. We don’t have to behave like Nero who fiddles while Rome is burning."

Meanwhile, former Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha on Sunday, May 16, opened up on the recent crisis plaguing the country and shared a solution as a businessman.

Okorocha said that within the shortest possible time he can create one million jobs from cattle business if the federal government provides the financial capital. The lawmaker representing Imo West in the National Assembly claimed that the country is losing billions of dollars by not doing cattle business.

According to Okorocha, the business of cattle rearing is not being managed well, adding that the federal government should invest in it.
