TY Danjuma - Nigeria Is On Fire by yeo: 7:58am On May 02, 2012
Former minister of defence General T.Y. Danjuma yesterday painted a very gloomy picture of Nigeria’s security situation, declaring succinctly that ‘‘the country is on fire” but expressed optimism that it would survive it.

Danjuma spoke at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, during the 50th birthday celebration of Mr. Sam Nda-Isaiah, chairman and editor-in-chief of LEADERSHIP Newspapers Group.

He also literally queried the attitude of the northern governors in the handling of the precarious security situation in the north which, he said, was virtually bringing some states in that region to their knees.

General Danjuma, who applauded Nda-Isaiah and LEADERSHIP Group for their services to the nation particularly “at this time of our history”, however, expressed optimism that Nigeria shall ‘‘muddle through”.

He stated: “But believe me, in the last two months, I began to wonder. Our house is on fire. Nigeria is becoming Somalia. The Somalisation of our country is going on now. Let’s look at ourselves in the face and tell ourselves the truth and find solution to the problem.

“We have to sit down and tell ourselves the truth. The responsibility is on us the northerners: our house is on fire, let us not deceive ourselves. We must tell ourselves the truth. The security situation is tolling on us. Borno State is today a failed state, Jigawa state is almost a failed state and Kano is moving towards becoming a failed state.”

The security of every state, according to him, is the responsibility of its governor. Northern governors have not done enough to resolve the problems affecting their states, he said.

“Where are the northern governors? We hear of multi-billion naira that is spent to erect fences around the government houses; then what happens to the citizens? We must take stock and also take responsibility.”

To the celebrant, Danjuma said: “That LEADERSHIP still exists today as a print medium and that it is editorially today one of the most vibrant and viable newspapers in Nigeria is a credit to you Sam.

“You are doing a wonderful service to this nation, particularly at this time of our history.’’

Also speaking in the same vein, former FCT minister General Jerry Useni queried the northern governors for doing very little to fight Boko Haram. “You cannot say you don’t know where these Boko Haram are, yet you build fences around government houses for your protection with billions of naira,” he said.

Re: TY Danjuma - Nigeria Is On Fire by PStylish: 10:32am On May 02, 2012
And he still believes we can continue like this, with this bleeped up system of government.
Instead of him and other prominent northern leaders to come forward and pressurise the National Assembly for constitutional amendment to return us to true federalism or ask for a National Conference, he is expressing some dumb optimism.

I believe Nigeria will move forward after the demise of northern leaders as these and this is not far fetched.

It is well.

The only person worth listening to was Prof Ango Abdulahi, at least he realized Nigeria was a mistake of the Brits as their other experiments in old India, old Sudan etc had all collapsed.

Nigeria is not yet on fire , this is just a spark , the spark will grow into a full fire by 2015 when Buhari/Elrufai will loose the 2015 eections and willvent their final spleen on the naive southerners still living in the core north, by then full retaliation will commence in the south .

Basically TY is the funniest joker in Nigeria, is he just waking up from his Day dream or did he just get the intuition or revelation that Nigeria is on fire, if his IQ matched his riches he would have realised that the failure of Aburi was the Failure of Nigeria.

I wonder what his colleague Gowon is doing now , is he still slumbering or is he in a day dream , my question is why are africans not realistic , why does it have to take African 50 years . 100 years to realize that soemthing is not working and is not likely to work ,

Re: TY Danjuma - Nigeria Is On Fire by fmgold: 12:26pm On May 02, 2012
Danjuma is a soldier and he did what had to be done as a soldier,war times are different. For all those screaming blue murder,if you know the man well he is enjoying his life,despite the power he wields, he is one of the few soldiers that resisted becoming head of state. He is a detribalized nigerian,last year he donated $15million to charity and put an Igbo lady(Thelma Ekiyor) in charge.
For those crying for revenge I pray you live longer than him,have more money than him and become more relevant than him. He and his beautiful wife are known as the dutch and duchess of Nigeria,enjoying their riches and travelling all around the world while some people are seeking revenge for an old man naturally close to the grave ain't dat ironic.

The man is proferring solutions that should be taking seriously,once again some educated ignoramous blinded by tradition and superstition have applied sentiments to it. All over the world wars were fought, europe, americas,asia, africa name it. While the rest of the world moved on and are better for it,here in africa its always about the blood that was shed crying and that,s why we can't move forward. The europeans took us as slaves and shed our blood,are they not progressing. The dead stay dead and will not resurrect or has anyone on nairaland seen a ghost before. Let us address the issues raised and do what we can about it.

Re: TY Danjuma - Nigeria Is On Fire by Afolabs101: 12:49pm On May 02, 2012
In fairness to Danjuma, he was an Officer in the army following orders during the Ironsi killing. If he had not, he would have been killed himself. Ironsi became Head of State after civilians had been killed in the coup that brought him to power, he didn't condemn those that carried out those killings.

Danjuma also did not "steal" any oil well. He was awarded the oil blocks by Abacha during a time that oil blocks were awarded at the discretion of the Head of State.

I believe that Danjuma is coming out to say something now because of the recent bombing in his state, Taraba. As a leader/elder and someone who is very close to GEJ, he should have spoken much earlier and should let us know what the solution is, or what he proposes.

With BH getting completely out of control now, maybe the solution is a sovereign national conference whereby everyone can decide what they want (split or stay together). But lets do it before BH spread their wave of destruction to the South, because if that happens we will have another civil war on our hands, as OPC, MEND, MASSOB etc retaliate undecided

^^^^^^^

This will be one of the worst crisis in Nigerian History should the above happen. The effects will be massive and people will be shocked how close they might be when and if the destruction begin.

Personally, I believe the result will spell the end to the entity called Nigeria. Unfortunately, the poor and less- privileged will be most affected while the mass exodus of our rich elites and our so-called Men of God will be astounding. Material things will be inconsequential as we might be faced with a human crisis. A tribal war looms.

We need a strong incorruptible leader to curb this menace, qualities Our slow president unfortunately lacks. The sooner we get a strong leader with vision the better for Nigeria.

Gen. T .Y.

And if they fail to act fast,they should expect the worst situation sooner than they can imagine.
