The Anglican Bishop of Nnewi Diocese, Rt. Rev'd Ndubuisi Obi has described Nigeria as a failed state.

Bishop Obi made this declaration at the Bishop’s Court Nnewi, during a pre-synod press briefing at the weekend.

He said that situation of things in Nigeria has become so worrisome that surviving a day in the country is now a miracle.

The cleric attributed the dangerous turn of events in the country to what he described as zero leadership at the federal level, noting that he always get infuriated whenever the handlers of the government of the day talk about the "presidency" instead of the "president" and asked whether Nigerians elected “the presidency” or the president.

He said: “Government of the day has failed woefully. They should change their mindset for the remaining two years. The glaring marginalization must stop. Look at the appointment of the Chief of Army Staff where an Igbo man was the next senior officer to take the shot but a far junior officer was chosen and the rest senior officers were retired after all the huge investment on them. Is that good?.

"The increasing wave of agitations across the country is indicative of the fact that Nigerians are not happy with the leadership at the center. If I tell you the kind of dehumanization I saw people subjected to in Imo State, you will marvel. At the checkpoints manned by soldiers, people will have to disembark from their vehicles and raise up their hands to pass through the checkpoints, including those with their Bibles in their hands and some women who had their babies strapped at their backs. Not to talk of the traffic jam the exercise causes on a daily basis. That is the situation we find ourselves in Nigeria of today." Bishop Obi pointed out.

The prelate noted that instead of the Federal Government to mobilize forces to handle the issue of banditary in parts of the North where, according to him, school children were freely abducted "they only show power and force  in the South East."

On the synod, Bishop Obi said that the theme of the September synod billed to hold at St James Anglican Church Ichi in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State is "Created for Dominion".

He said that the theme was carved around the preparedness of the church to take dominion and never to take back seat again in every aspect of life.
