President Muhammadu Buhari is not capable of protecting Nigerians or confronting the security challenges facing the nation, Professor Kingsley Moghalu has declared.
Moghalu, a former presidential candidate, made the submission in his reaction to the killing of 43 rice farmers in Borno State by Boko Haram insurgents on Saturday.
He described the incident as a national strategy which is a pointer to the fact that Nigeria is becoming a failed state under the leadership of President Buhari.
He also lambasted the government and security agencies, accusing them of intimidating and arresting peaceful #EndSARS protesters demanding better governance but unable to do anything to insurgents terrorizing the entire country.
Moghalu made his submission in a series of tweets on his Twitter account on Sunday where he wrote: “The barbaric beheading of 43 Nigerians in Zabarmari village in Borno State by Boko Haram is a national outrage and tragedy. It’s increasingly clear that @NigeriaGov is unable to protect the lives of Nigerians. What does that mean? Our country is becoming a failed state.
“It is a travesty that a government that can’t protect the lives of its citizens spends all its energy attempting to suppress #EndSARS peaceful protesters, freezing their bank accounts and bringing spurious legal charges.
“Our government and our Central Bank call peaceful citizens financiers of terrorism” while the real terrorists are having a field day with Nigerian lives and no one apparently can stop them and their real financiers. It is a national shame,” Moghalu tweeted.
“The real challenge we face: Can Nigeria survive until 2023 without a massive implosion? #NoSecurity #NoEconomy. What’s left? #Restructuring,” he asked.
