Anthony Okogie: Nigeria Becoming Killing Field, Failed State by ogododo: 9:39am On Jun 17, 2021
The emeritus Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, Cardinal Anthony Okogie, has lamented the insecurity in the country, saying the country is becoming a killing field.

Okogie, at his 85th birthday thanksgiving and 50th Episcopal ordination anniversary on Wednesday in Lagos, also said the country was becoming a failed state.

He said, “The words of Psalm 85 form the prayer of a patriot for his afflicted country, a fervent prayer for revival and restoration. It recognises that national restoration is entirely man-made, but given by God. Indeed, what other prayer, but for mercy and restoration is appropriate for our beloved country, Nigeria in this trying time of all forms of depressing occurrences?

“It seems that Nigeria has become a killing field, as insecurity and terror reign from one end to the other, and there seems to be no end in sight at present. A few weeks ago, on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of this administration, given the severity of the status quo of our socio-economic and political situation, it was shocking that the government claimed that the Nigerian people never had it so good.

“It is evident that Nigeria has practically become a failed state; a country fails when it is no longer able to protect its citizens from harm and secure their welfare. A country fails when instead of reassuring its citizens by actions and policies that the future is secured, it becomes a state most people are planning to flee to other climes where their governments are truly functioning.”

Okogie added that the problems of the country had become worse under the current regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.)

“It is true that our problems did not start under this administration, they seem to have worsened economically and politically in this past six years. Insurgency in the North-East is still ongoing and insecurity has spread nationwide in spite of the military being deployed everywhere.

“The avalanche of banditry and kidnapping that have overwhelmed parts of the North-West and North-Central cannot be described. The entire security apparatus often seems clueless or helpless. The situation in some parts of the South-East also lives more to be desired; innocent citizens are being killed, properties are being destroyed, people are no longer safe in the land. Unknown gunmen has become a favourite vocabulary in our mouths,” he said.

The Catholic Archbishop of the Lagos, Bishop Adewale Martins, lauded Okogie for being an inspiration to the younger generations.

“His Eminence has been very concerned about the situation in our country. He built on the foundation that has been there and has made it more solid during his years of governance and we hope that we can continue to build on that foundation. We thank him for the many ways he has been inspiring, encouraging and advising us,” Martins said.

We all know this, but BMC slaves on Nairaland have refused to accept this reality. I see them being kidnapped and killed, I see the survivors leading a violent protest and asking buhari to step down.

This I have seen.

shocked

John told his teacher that Nigeria is a failed country.

The teacher slapped John. John went home after school and told his mum what transpired between him and his teacher.

The next day, John's mum together with John, went to school with some police men and got the teacher arrested. After spending 5 hours in jail, the teacher was bailed.

She resumed teaching the next day and at the assembly, she said that Nigeria is a failed nation. The boy went to the police station on his way home and reported his teacher. She got arrested the next day.

Show me love! To crack joke no easy.

Funny country.
