Former Anambra Governor, Peter Ob has expressed sadness over the alleged sale of Nigerians and other African migrants into slavery in Libya.

Speaking to Journalist, Obi said such tragedy required Nigerians to have a re-think about the trajectory the country was headed.

“If you listened to my speech, you would see deliberate comparison of Nigeria with other countries of relative development trajectory in the 80’s and how those countries had all overtaken us, because of leadership failures of the past.

“What we are witnessing in Libya is part of the consequences of that failure. Such occurrences should be utilised by us to advise ourselves as a country that we must wake up and put this country on the right path to avoid implosion in the future.”

The former Governor therefore called on the President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately begin real governance by doing those things that other nations did that took them out of the woods.
