Nigerian lawyer, Funmi Falana and wife of human rights activist Femi Falana has stated that the government should resign if they cannot guarantee the safety of the citizens of the country.
Speaking in Iyin Ekiti, Ekiti State, during her yearly New Year celebration with motherless children, Funmi stated that Nigerians are afraid to go out because they are unsure of their security.
“Nigerians are afraid to go out, Nigerians fear for their lives, they are afraid for their security. It is very sad. Nobody ever envisaged that Nigeria will get to a situation like this.
“There is the need to do something about the security of the citizens. A government that is unable to guarantee the security of the citizens is a failed government, so if they cannot protect the Nigerian people, the governments have failed.
“We are using this opportunity to remind them that it is the constitutional responsibility of the government under Chapter Two of the constitution to provide security for the people. It is as if they are helpless, if they are helpless, let them resign and let us know that we don’t have government."
