By Franca Joseph (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, Says Nigeria is already at war, urging the government to take stringent steps to restore order to the country.
He made this known via a statement on Monday I which he pointed to the worsening state of insecurity in the country as proof that all was not well with the country’s internal security.
“A government refuses to accept that, as indicated several times over, the nation is at war. At war within itself, and that it requires drastic measures, away from spasmodic responses after the dread deed, if there is any will left over to salvage what is left of nationhood,” he said.
Speaking further, Soyinka harped on the need for the government to restructure the country in order to save the country from imminent collapse..
“What is tragically demonstrated daily in all departments of citizen survival is the need to overhaul the nation’s structural existence – beginning, obviously, with the imperative of guaranteeing that very existence”
