Falana Decries The Current State Of High Insecurity In The Country
T he Senior Advocate of Nigeria in a 5 minutes press conference on PlusTv which was subsequently shared on Twitter by Femi Fanikayode, stated in Strong terms: Our Country is going through a war.
The Bokoharam having conquered the northeast and are moving also to conquer other places like Niger, kebbi, and other places. As evidence of this fact, the Governor of Niger state warned his people “the boys are coming”.
Recently, schools have been closed in many parts of Abuja because “the boys” have surrounded the city.
According to Falana, the southeastern part of the country comprising of Imo, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu, Anambra is undergoing the same heat from the boys. The Police, Army, and other security agencies go to work without uniforms on.
While the situation is slightly different in the southwest, it also has the undertone of the activities from “the boys”. Kidnapping, ritual murders all over the south-west.
No where is safe in Nigeria, the SAN stated.
In the spate of this gruesome evil being perpetrated in the country, the regime which has outlived its usefulness, boasts that nobody can suggest that the president should resign. To them, it is a treasonable statement to ask the president to resign.
Quoting from section 143 of the 1999 constitution, the Senior advocate stated clearly the provision for impeachment if a democratically elected President cannot perform his responsibilities.
The president has failed in the discharge of his duties as stated in section 14 (2) of the Nigerian constitution:
The primary purpose of the Government shall be the security and welfare of the people.
So if a government can neither guarantee security and welfare of the people, it should be sacked.
