The safety scenario on this nation at this time is so dangerous that I, Robert Clarke, can’t assure Nigeria one other six months.

“The issues are so overwhelming and so they have been created by these similar politicians since 1999 structure got here in to be and this crop of politicians, younger boys then, who had been swimming in Sani Abacha’s loot and attempting to type as many political events for him, acquired into cash and got here into politics, Nigeria has by no means been the identical.

“Nigeria is worse than it was in 1982. 1982 when Shehu Shagari was the president of the nation is a greater Nigeria than at this time, 2021. What’s the trigger? The trigger is the management we have now.

We would like a state of emergency to be created in Nigeria at this time.

“How will we do it? Below the Nigerian structure, the President, who’s the commander-in-chief has all the ability to delegate all his chief powers to the chief of defence workers. Let him now discuss to the president of the Senate, let him now discuss to the Speaker of the home and all of the governors {that a} state of emergency is now going to be declared in Nigeria, which implies all governors should go, all legislators should go.

“The navy will now arrange six geographical zones that we imagine in our hearts, nonetheless exists however let’s begin on that. Permit navy governance over these states. I can guarantee you, the day Nigeria is launched to 6 states, and there’s a state of emergency, 80% of the cash being spent on governance will likely be returned to the treasury. Then, we will sit and rejig Nigeria, let all of the states management their inner sources.”
