Nine major mistakes Nigeria made and why it is still struggling – Atedo Peterside

Nine major mistakes Nigeria made – Atedo Peterside

Atedo Peterside, the chairman of Anap Jets Limited, has identified the 1966 coups and the civil war among nine major mistakes Nigeria made.

The former group chairman of Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc also mentioned the introduction of religion in politics by the elite, lack of conflict resolution mechanism, enthronement of injustice and rewarding bad behaviours as major mistakes made by the country.

Peterside said this at the ongoing colloquium held in honour of Pastor Ituah Ighodalo’s 63rd birthday in Lagos.

He added that people no longer believe in serving but getting reward from the office and Nigerians no longer believe in their leaders’ words.

Peterside also said parts of the mistakes Nigeria made was the destruction of standards in the civil service by the military.

According to him, “We have never adopted global best practices of resolving crisis; the words of leaders are no longer their bonds; we enthrone injustice; we reward bad behaviours, among others.”
