- President Muhammadu Buhari has come under fire from some northern group
- According to them, Nigeria is drifting towards becoming a failed state
- Many social media commentators have however reacted to the warning issued by the CNG
In what will come as an insult to the federal government, Nigeria is drifting to a failed state under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Coalition of Northern Groups warned.
This was disclosed CNG’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman. According to him, apart from the comatose economy, the inability of the government to provide basic amenities to the people is a sign of failure in the country, The Punch reports.
The groups also listed some of the things that showed that Nigeria is heading for being a failed state. It listed the indicators as poverty, corruption, ineffective governance, crime, violence, forced displacement and sectarian and ethnic conflict.
“Regardless of whether we choose to call it fragile, failed, or failing state, Nigeria is plagued by overwhelming problems with few solutions in sight."
In what might annoy the APC led federal government, Matthew Kukah, bishop of Sokoto Catholic diocese, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of nepotism.
According to the respected cleric, there could have been a coup or war in the country if a non-Nothern Muslim becomes a president and does a fraction of what Buhari did.
Kukah disclosed this in his 2020 Christmas message titled, ‘A nation in search of vindication.'
Also recall that Legit.ng reported that Kukah lambasted northern Muslim elite over the proliferation of Almarijis in the region.
The cleric said the Almajiris in the northern part of Nigeria have been “sinned against” and denied opportunities for social progress by the elite.
Legit.ng gathered that Kukah, who is the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Kaduna, said on Monday, June 8, that the Almajiri has become a scapegoat for the multiple sins of the Nigerian state in general and some Muslim elite in particular.
