    Imminent death now stalks Nigerians in their hospitals supplied with lethally expired injections,
    and from death following power outages in the middle of surgery on hospital beds or on gurneys.

    With future generations of Nigerians already condemned to life as manual labourers, as
    the wretched products of ruined schools totally deprived of sustenance by thievery in education
    ministries across the 36 states – the death of Nigeria itself as a self-sustaining economic entity
    appears silhouetted; and is now a matter of time, moreso that a good half of the country’s youths have
    taken to violent crimes to make ends meet in their visceral reaction to what they see as illegitimate Nigeria

    racked by massive thefts, impunity, un-erring stealing and looting by states and federal government officials.

      Steve, good analysis ! Tganks

    “There is no doubt that our nation is at war. The enemy has clearly and unequivocally

    served the nation notice of its vile intentions. Therefore, a clear, unambiguous and decisive

    military response from the government, beyond the imposition of a state of emergency,

    is urgently required in this circumstance. This is an option we must consider now”.

    “It is obvious that we are dealing with insurgents and well-funded nihilists

    who are determined to violently trample upon the secularity of the Nigerian State

    and destroy the country. A modern, vibrant, progressive, multi-ethnic, multi-religious Nigeria

    is an anathema to them.”

    “Our emphasis must therefore be on winning the hearts and minds of the communities
    in the immediate theatres of conflict. The full might and strength of our security services

    must now be deployed to confront this (Boko Haram) scourge”

  • Johnson

    That is Jonathan’s men at work. Since he can’t impeach the governor he would rather destabilize the state so that there will be no election there in 2015. That is what you get with a man of such a very low IQ in power. He shouldn’t be there in the first instance if Nigerians are as intelligent as they always claim to be.

    Not only is he unintelligent, he also comes from the South East where criminality reigns, where money is their god and governance is akin to stealing.

    Nigerians, I’m very sorry for you.

  • Abate Dokpu

    Governor Kwankwaso is running for presidency therefore his state must be destabilized to cast him in bad light and also to detract him from the presidential race. Dia ris Godoooooooooh. Nigerians shine your eyes.
