A former CBN deputy governor has reacted to the brutal killing of 43 farmers in by Boko Haram.
The federal government has been slammed over its failure to secure the lives of Nigerians following reports of beheading and attacks against villages in the north.
Former Presidential candidate, Kingsley Moghalu lashed out at the Buhari-led adminstration for spending its time and energy trying to suppress peaceful protesters while failing on its constitutionally given role to protect lives and properties of its citizens.
This comes after the horrific killing of 43 farmers by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno state.
In tweets he shared, the economist expressed fear of Nigeria becoming a failed state. He also said that ''a government which can’t protect the lives of its citizens, spends all its energy attempting to suppress #EndSARS peaceful protesters.''
“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.
“The real challenge we face: Can Nigeria survive until 2023 without a massive implosion? #NoSecurity #NoEconomy. What’s left? #Restructuring."
