Buba Galadima: “Nigeria is already a failed state under this govt”
Buba Galadima, an ally turned critic of President Muhammadu Buhari, says Nigeria has become a failed state under the current All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration.
He stated this while aligning with Financial Times, a UK-based business newspaper, which recently published a scathing editorial about the Buhari administration.
It stated that Nigeria has been “going backwards economically” as “carjacking, kidnapping and banditry are among Nigeria’s rare growth industries”.
It further stated that by definition of a failed state being “one where the government is no longer in control”, Nigeria “is teetering on the brink”.
Reacting to the assertion, Buba Galadima said that the newspaper was “saying the obvious”.
“Nigeria is already a failed state under this government. Nigeria has become a failed state under Buhari’s administration, and that’s the bitter truth,” the vocal politician told Saturday Sun.
Giving reasons for his assessment, he said, “That you can’t travel safely from even Abuja to Kaduna, then what does a failed state mean?
“Bandits and insurgents have taken over many parts of the country especially in the North. But the media is not reporting most of the cases, and that’s why some Nigerians don’t know that the situation is very bad.
“The security situation in the country is very terrible. Lives and properties are no longer safe and secure. It has never been this bad. APC has brought nothing but misery, poverty, and suffering on Nigerians.”
