Take Danjuma’s warning serious, killings spell doom for Nigeria – APC chairman

Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Scandinavia, Lawal Ayoola, has urged the Federal Government to take comments made by former Defence Minister, retired Gen. Theophilus Danjuma, on the nation’s security as a wake-up call.

Danjuma had on Saturday at the convocation of Taraba State University called on Nigerians to use whatever means at their disposal to defend themselves against killers. Speaking with reporters in Lagos on Sunday, Ayoola pointed out that for a retired general and former minister of defence to have made such an assertion, there was need for government to live up to its billing.

He said, “For such a statement from a retired general, a former minister for defence and a war veteran, obviously, Nigeria is outrightly in an uncharted water. “The former defence chief’s statement is a clarion call on the leadership of Nigeria to wake to its responsibility and save the country from sliding to a failed state. “The responsibility of any government was to protect and promote the welfare of its citizens, anything short of that is leadership failure.

“The incessant killings which could be likened to ethnic cleansing if not completely checked and it may definitely spell doom for Nigeria as a country. “The implications of such reality are damaging to our country both locally and internationally. It is no-brainer that an anarchy environment is never attractive to daily investors, expect only ammunition entrepreneurs.”
