Injustice, bad governance causes of killings in Nigeria – Lamido

A former governor of Jigawa State and presidential aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Sule Lamido, has attributed the increasing spate of killings in the country to injustice and bad governance.

Lamido who met with the Forum of Southern and Midlebelt Leaders in Abuja on Monday, told newmen at the end of the meeting in an interview that the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government had failed on its mandate, hence the prevailing security challenges in the country.

“The culture of governance is deteriorating because of absence of justice which should be the anchor of governance but it is not in Nigeria anymore.

“That is why you are seeing all these kidnappings, Boko Haram, killings in Taraba, Adamawa, Zamfara, Sokoto and all over Nigeria. This country is not being run according to law and order; there is nothing like justice in Nigeria. Therefore, Nigerians feel that this country is not good anymore.

“This government is trying to bury the contributions of our founding fathers; integrity and honesty are not new in our vocabulary. Before Buhari there was integrity, there was Tafawa Balewa, Obafemi Awolowo, Aminu Kano, Azikwe, these are people of honour and integrity. He has never for once paid tributes to our founding fathers.

“More than anything, we are going through a period of injustice. In other climes, he (Buhari) will be impeached because he said he will work in favour of where he got 95 percent and do less where he got five percent.

“What is happening now is because this country is sick, we are looking for justice. We want a Nigeria where everybody will feel a sense of belonging, not nepotism anymore,” Lamido said.

Earlier, President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigo, John Nwodo, who spoke on behalf of the Southern and Middlebelt Leaders Forum, said, “Our people are deeply upset by the state of affairs in the country. Our country is at a crossroad.

“We seek restructuring of Nigeria to address teething problems confronting us. We seek answers to how your policies will address all these.”
