Taking to Twitter on March 16, Deji said he is tired of criticizing the Government over the current happenings in the country including the increase in the price of fuel, naira falling, and so on.

According to him, Nigeria is slowly becoming a failed country and Nigerians need to come up with a solution to mitigate the decline of the economy.

He wrote,

“Nigeria is almost a failed nation. Things weren’t this bad during the civil war or the colonial era. What can we do aside JAPA to halt the decline of the economy because I’m sincerely tired of criticizing?

Criticism won’t enable me buy diesel at N110 per liter, pay less electric tariff yet no light or buy dollar at N185.
