“Take hopelessness, pour it into a pot of corruption, add generous amounts of poverty, injustice, insecurity and nepotism and you’ll get a mixture that tastes like Nigeria.”
It’s no longer an exaggeration that the once highly respected giant of Africa is now sucked into a progressive black hole of dysfunctionalism.
What remains is a nation that no longer works for many of her citizens, now painfully nursing the tedious blows from such ominous leadership failures plaguing the country.
The Boko Haram terrorists and killer Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria, embody these failures. After hundreds of thousands of dead and displaced victims (mostly Christians) and billions of naira worth of properties destroyed, these killers now seek to ‘repent.’ The largely-aloof Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, welcomes them back with open arms as ‘misguided brothers.’
London-based Buhari will gladly dig deep into a debt-ridden economy to lavish impoverished taxpayer’s sweat on these inundated criminals as ‘amnesty’ and ‘rehabilitation settlement.’
Now, the government has taken it a step further by hastily enlisting ex-terrorists into the Nigerian Army without seeking their interest. The decision reeks of sinister intentions — like a plan to subdue the nation’s force from within.
Buhari’s plan to flood the nation with privileged cows and gun-wielding herders has, so far, been met with strong resistance. Now the plot to saturate the army with pseudo- repentant terrorists seems to be the next agenda.
Many say a ‘Jihad’ is imminent in the country with more Islamic radicals in power than ever before. With the recent development, this can only be true.
Muhammadu Buhari, Nasir El-Rufai, Lai Mohammed, Sheikh Gumi and other influential leaders of the northern region must be held responsible for the looming destruction of Nigeria by Fulani terrorists.
