Going by the level of insecurity and unprecedented diminution of national unity, Nigeria is on the brink of a national disaster, former Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, has said.
Anyaoku’s alarm came just about 24 hours after former President Olusegun Obasanjo had also warned that the nation was on the edge of the precipice.
Speaking in Abuja, on Tuesday, at the Justice Dadi Onyeama book launch, Anyaoku’s noted that pointers of the nation approaching a brink included daily incidences of kidnappings and killings of human beings, violence by Fulani herdsmen, worsening level of poverty and controversies that greeted the proposed RUGA policy of the federal government.
Anyaoku particularly warned that the country will be worse off if President Muhammadu Buhari, members of the National Assembly, state governors and all political elites continued to deny a situation he described as “extremely worrisome.”
Noting instances of unsuccessful diverse federations which came to grief and Yugoslavia and Sudan, Anyaoku in launching the book entitled, Dadi, The Man, The Legend, stressed that the nation’s leaders must be willing to learn from history. (Nigerian Tribune)
