Reacting to the series of Boko Haram attacks in the country, former Minister of Defence, General T. Y. Danjuma painted a very disconcerting picture of Nigeria’s security situation.
Danjuma announced that the “country is on fire”, however, he was optimistic that the country would survive it. He said all this at the International Conference Centre during the 50th birthday celebration of Sam Nda Isaiah, Chairman and Editor in Chief of LEADERSHIP Newspaper Group.
Recently, Danjuma did not hold back as he probed the attitude of the Northern State governors in dealing with the security situation in the North. “But believe me in the last two months, I began to wonder. Our house is on fire. Nigeria is becoming Somalia. The Somalianisation of our country is going on now,” he said.
Danjuma commended Nda-Isaiah and LEADERSHIP Group for its services to the nation particularly “at this time in our history” however, expressed optimism that Nigeria shall muddle through.
