In his New Year message, Obi said that going by socioeconomic review of economic indices all over the world, the year 2021 would be challenging globally, considering the fact that the world was still recovering from the harsh economic realities resulting from the coronavirus pandemic and especially for Nigeria which had suffered from years of mismanagement of resources that ended up aggravating the current economic recession.

He said: “Nigeria found itself in many unpleasant positions in the year 2020. Nigeria overtook India as the country with highest under 5 mortality rates. “Nigeria now has the highest prevalence of drug abuse in the world. We were named the most stressful country in the world, with a life expectancy ratio of 55 years. Nigeria is, today, ranked the most terrorised country in Africa and 3rd in the world.
