Pat Utomi, co-founder of Lagos Business School and Pan Atlantic University, has recently encouraged Nigerians to find ways to halt the country’s impending anarchy, as Nigeria slips to failure.
The professor, an alumnus of the university, said groups and organisations like the alumni could use their wealth of experience and strength to work towards building stronger institutions in the country.
He said that any society that is not investing in the education and wellbeing of its future generation is seriously heading towards anarchy.
“Nigeria is a classic example of a country that is walking towards failure; the society fails largely because people like you have not done the needful to sustain the country.
“And so, when alumni of an institution that means something to the making of the nation does not realise its duty, the possibility is that history will hold them to account,” he said.
Mr. Utomi, also the founder of Centre for Values in Leadership, told members of the association that groups like the alumni were important to save the looming anarchy.
He said failure to show leadership, instead of reaping demographic dividend, will reap secession or anarchy, especially when youths lose confidence in the leadership.
