5 reasons why change may not come soon in Nigeria

06 September 2016, 21:23

Lagos - Nigerians are still asking when the change and dividends of democracy will reach the man on the street.

Here are five quotes that support Nigerian fears that the promise of change may not come soon enough.

1. “I will destroy Nigeria with the truth” Nnamdi Kanu 

The  leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) has vowed to destroy Nigeria. The pro-Biafra champion who has been incarcerated since 2015 explained that he plans to destroy Nigeria not with explosives but with truth. 

 2.  “If you keep reforming and reforming and the people are suffering and dying, you may reach the Promised Land alone” Senator Shehu Sani
Shehu Sani has warned President Muhammadu Buhari that the promised change may come late and cause the death of Nigerians before its arrival.

 3. “The man who once led Nigeria as a military dictator might be sliding towards former autocratic tendencies”  Tom Marino 
Tom Marino  is a member of the US congress writing a letter to the secretary of state, John Kerry asking the US to stop providing security assistance to Nigeria.

4 “If we do not do something concrete now on these children that are growing up malnourished, sick with hunger, poverty and malnutrition in Borno state, then we are going to have another war that is worse than the Boko Haram war.”  Senator Ali Ndume 
Ali Ndume was  warning that if something urgent was not done, a war worse than the Boko Haram insurgency looms in the North east region, especially in Borno state where he comes from

. 5.  “He has just aggravated our economic situation in the country. Six months no Minister and the country was drifting and has not recovered till today and he has brought us to this level.” former All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship aspirant in Benue state, Nath Apir

He was saying that Nigerians are currently regretting voting for President Muhammadu Buhari at the last general elections.
