“It is unfortunate that kidnapping and abduction have assumed the commonest crimes in Nigeria under President Buhari administration. History will never forget that. Nigeria has never felt this unsafe and insecure since the Civil War. Everything appears to be falling apart; in fact, many think the situation in the country is beyond redemption”

F OR many informed and ordinary persons, it is a miracle that Nigeria is still together despite the last six years of grueling security darkness. The daily reports of killings and mass abductions in Benue, Plateau, Kaduna, Borno, Zamfara and other states have left many asking: Is the country that used to be called the giant of Africa? Over the years, all the efforts of the federal government at solving the harrowing insecurity are riddled with suspicions and controversies. It is unfortunate that kidnapping and abduction have assumed the commonest crimes in Nigeria under President Buhari administration. History will never forget that. Nigeria has never felt this unsafe and insecure since the Civil War.

Everything appears to be falling apart; in fact, many think the situation in the country is beyond redemption. Many schools have been closed in the North-east and North-west, meaning thousands of students or school children have been at home for fear of school abductions. Presently, hundreds of innocent school children are still under the captivity of their abductors. There have been unanswered allegations of corruption in the funds made available for the purchase of weapons and prosecution of counterterrorism operations. The Nigerian military has been enmeshed in serial image meltdown as a result of the obvious politicisation. One of the suggestions many informed persons have been offering to this government is a declaration of state of emergency.

Unfortunately, the present administration would have none of that. The country’s security situation is getting worse by the day and has defied all the solutions held out by the Buhari administration. To stop these unending barbarous acts, tame insecurity and arrest the national drift towards implosion, the most urgent thing to do now is to declare a statement of emergency. Nigeria is one of the African and global flashpoints in terms of terrorism and violent conflicts. What is most disheartening is the fact that the government of Nigeria has clearly shown lack of competence and political will to tackle the hydraheaded monster of insecurity.

Many experts and statesmen among who are former leaders, serving and retired military officers, democratic institutions, political leaders, diplomats, religious and traditional, have tried to proffer solutions to these problems; however, daily bloodshed and killings are still highly prevalent in many parts of the country because the government has become deaf to every reasonable solution. We therefore urge this government to, as a matter of urgency, demonstrate courage and convincing political will to call for critical stakeholders’ conference on national security with a view to finding a lasting solution to the problem of insecurity in the country.
