The Presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party in the 2019 general election, Kingsley Moghalu, has described Nigeria as a ‘crime scene’ of insecurity and corruption.
Moghalu in a post on his Twitter account said President Muhammadu Buhari-led government has failed to protect the lives of Nigerians.
The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria warned that Nigerians will take back power from this administration if it fails to attend to the security challenges.
He wrote: “The reason Nigeria is a ‘crime scene’ of insecurity and corruption is not because @TheEconomist or any Western media says so. It’s because it’s the reality millions of Nigerians live daily. They don’t need foreign media to tell them what they know.
“Explaining away the failure of @NigeriaGov to secure Nigerian lives, territory and property doesn’t fool us. Failure is failure.
“The only way to correct it is success, and we’ll feel that too in the Northeast, Northwest and Southeast if it happens. Else, we #TakeIttothePolls 2023.”
In another development, politicians in Nigeria has been advised by the Bishop of. Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah, to restrain their involvement with religion.
Kukah noted that religious identity remains a very troubling identity that can ignite passion.
The cleric cautioned that we have to get to a stage at which religion doesn’t just become a weapon, a stick for flogging one another when it can be avoided.
