Nigerians from all walks of life have been entreated to help their beloved country from crumbling under their noses.
The call for urgent attention and help was made by Bukola Saraki, a former Senate president, on Tuesday, April 27.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, Saraki recalled that states like Kaduna, Yobe, Anambra, Lagos, Niger, and Borno experienced serious tragedies that claimed many lives in just one day.
Speaking further, he shifted focus to the government of Niger which, according to him, recently opened up on its inability to bring the ugly situation under control.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart stated that these all point to one glaring fact: the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government and the All Progressives Congress (APC) need help.
"As we reel from the multiple tragedies, my family and I will continue to pray for all the affected families and communities. We will lend them our full support as we all bind together to get past this difficult time. May God grant them the fortitude and strength.
"However, it is obvious that President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) government need help. They have been overwhelmed by the situation and they sure need assistance from all."
Governor Ortom suspects that the country is becoming a failed state, in his words, a banana republic.
The Benue governor wondered why the shoot-at-sight order of President Muhammadu Buhari on bandits carrying AK-47 should be contradicted by the minister of defence, Bashir Magashi.
