Former Sports Minister, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, on Wednesday, reflected on the current happenings in the country describing Nigeria as a failed nation in all ramifications.
He made the remark on Wednesday in Ilorin, Kwara State at the 33rd Media Parliament of the State Council of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, NUJ, held at the council’s press centre.
“How else do you qualify a country as a failed nation when jailbreaks are successfully carried out and the country’s national currency becomes a worthless paper?” he queried.
Bolaji decried the current security situation in the country saying “I live every day in fear, my fears, apart from anyone being abducted anytime, anyone could get killed anywhere and nothing will happen.”
The Ex-Minister, who is the Kwara Central Senatorial candidate in the 2023 general elections, asserted that when citizens submit their rights to a government, it is expected that their lives and property should be protected by the same government.
He described next year’s general elections as another opportunity for Nigerians to get it right and tell the APC ruling government to stop the bleeding in the country.
He said the progress recorded in the last 35 years in the country has been wiped out by the ruling APC government, adding ” there is no way to exonerate the party from what has happened in the last seven years.”
Bolaji also observed a fundamental error in the reconstruction, rehabilitation, and reconciliation (3Rs) program of the Federal government after the Nigerian Civil war.
He said the restructuring, which should have been the fourth arm of the program was conspicuously omitted leading partly to where we found ourselves as a nation today.
“Our inability to build a real nation is responsible for our present situation” he stated, contending however that “any moment of great crisis or upheavals are moments of opportunities.”
The state chairman of the NUJ, Ahmed Abdullateef, in his opening remark, said the current insecurity in the country had risen to an alarming proportion as citizens could no longer sleep with their two eyes closed.
He called on the government to put on the thinking cap and tackle the menace.
