    Huge monies that should have been utilized in educating and empowering it’s citizens are now spent to but deadly weapons to quell the consequences of their negligence. Africa and Nigeria, wake up!!!

      Without security there wouldn’t be education that you mentioned earlier on, so to me they should ride on. This thing is not peculiar to Africa alone, that is the practice all over the world. If the government is not working hard to address the issue of security you will be the first person to castigate them

        I never said what the government is doing is wrong my dear bro. While you seek to secure the state, educate and empower your people. Those countries you’re probably referring to have free education from at least primary to secondary level. Try and compare the budget for education and security since Independence and you will agree with me that we have neglected one of the most effective ways of tackling insecurity.
