Wikipedia Adds Nigeria To List Of Failed States
Wikipedia has updated its list of failed states and Nigeria has been included alongside the likes of Syria, Somalia, Myanmar, Iraq, Yemen, Turkey, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic, Rwanda, Liberia, Yugoslavia, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Sudan, South Sudan.
A failed state is described by the free web-based encyclopedia project as a political body that has disintegrated to a point where basic conditions and responsibilities of a sovereign government no longer function properly.
Wikipedia further added that a state can also fail if the government loses its legitimacy even if it is performing its functions properly. For a stable state, it is necessary for the government to enjoy both effectiveness and legitimacy. Likewise, when a nation weakens and its standard of living declines, it introduces the possibility of total governmental collapse.
