By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Aviation Minister, has warned that there might be no Nigeria by 2023, if steps were not taken by the incumbent administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to heal the nation’s visceral sores.
Mr.Fani-Kayode, who is one of the staunchest critics of the administration of President Buhari’s government ,made this known via a statement on his Facebook page, where he noted that Nigeria had become a widely divided country under Buhari’s watch, pointing out that his “prophetic” warnings about the worsening state of the nation in 2015, 2017 and 2019 were ignored, albeit to the country’s detriment.
Citing the rising agitations by groups from the South-West, South-East and Middle Belt regions for independent states of their own as evidence of the loss of faith in the Nigerian project, which are logical consequences of Buahri’s calamitous stewardship since assuming power in 2015, Fani-Kayode warned that unless the president retraced his steps to commence a process of building bridges across the national divides, “there will be no Nigeria left by 2023”.
In his words: ”If these matters, challenges and agitations are not handled with sensitivity, understanding, restraint, wisdom and care we may be pushed over the brink and our country may be plunged into a long, terrible and catastrophic conflict in which millions will die and no-one will win.
On the adversarial dispositions of Nigerians towards one another, consequent to Buhari’s misrule, he said: ”Today in Nigeria we are no longer our brother’s keeper and love, kindness and charity to our neighbours and to one another have become scarce commodities.
“Sadly we have become a failed state of shattered dreams sitting on the brink of yet another civil war.
He warned that history will judge President Muhammadu Buhari harshly and posterity will not be kind to him”, for doing nothing to check the festering decay and ultimate death of the union.
