Emeka Anyaoku to Buhari, NASS “Nigeria Is On The Brink”

Former Commonwealth Secretary-General, Chief Emeka Anyaoku has revealed that Nigeria is on the brink and Presidenthe Muhammadu Buhari and The National Assembly must act fast.

: “Let me now come to my message to President Buhari and all members of our National Assembly. The message is two-faced: Nigeria is on the brink, and our foremost national challenge is the management of our country’s diversity. “Every diverse federal country throughout the world achieves political stability and socio-economic development through successfully managing its national diversity. There are two common keys to this. The first is having an inclusive central government which gives the peoples of the component parts of the federation a sense of belonging that in turn underpins the sense of unity and patriotism in all the citizens. “The second is having an adequate delegation of powers to the federating units to enable them to handle their internal security and significant aspects of their socio-economic development. “However today, Nigeria is on the brink. For no objective observer, including those in the government, can deny that the current state of affairs in our country is extremely worrisome. “We see an unprecedented diminution of national unity; we see an unprecedented level of insecurity of life and property with kidnappings and killings of human beings occurring virtually every day in many parts of the country including the seemingly unchecked violence by Fulani herdsmen which has spawned fractious controversies over the proposed Ruga policy by the federal government.
