The origination and development of corruption, crime and crisis during the first four years of All Progressive Congress [APC] led government of President Muhammadu Buhari could simply be put at; ‘5 Bars’, the alarming rate has seen calls by; former president & ‘Ebora Owu’, Olusegun Obasanjo, Lt. Gen Theophilus Danjuma [retd], Fr. Mathew Hassan Kukah, Shehu of Borno, Emir of Katsina, Civil Society Organizations, and Non-Governmental Organization’s remained critical, unapologetic and unreserved as regards the current security situation in the country.

From ethnic cleansing, farmers/herders clash, religious bigotry, cultism, arson, banditry, corruption, terrorism, kidnapping and electoral violence, Nigeria has never witnessed the present scenario in her nation history. The nation is presently in category ‘5’ in insecurity.

With over 201 million Nigerians and an expected to hit 300 million in 2030, the country is at the mercy of a looming catastrophe of ‘poor revolution’ induced by corruption and lack of integrity, greed, fraud, bad governance, nepotism and power thirsty and power drunk and administrative ineptitude.

Nigeria was tagged as in-secured and un-safe in the Sub-Saharan African alongside; Central Africa Republic, Congo Brazzaville, Somalia, Niger, Chad, Burkina Faso, and Mali due to endless insurgencies, banditry, killings, kidnappings and insecurity.

In the last two years of the self-glorified All Progressive Congress [APC] led government of President Muhammadu Buhari led administration, in 2017, 894 people were killed while in 2018, there was increased to 1,814 people killed. Nigeria’s insecurity casualties has continue to rise according to a recent insecurity data release from Nigeria Police.

“Crime statistics indicate that between January to April 2019, a total of 685 persons have been kidnapped across the country.” “Of this figure, 546 which represents 79.8 percent of the national total were recorded in the three Northern geo-political zones with the North West where 365 persons were reportedly kidnapped within the period.

“The figure followed by the North Central geo-political zone where 154 persons were kidnapped. It’s pertinent that Zamfara state has the highest national kidnapped rate of 283 victims in what has been directly linked to the activities of armed bandits in the state. “In relation to banditry, a total of 175 incidents were reported between January to April 2019 with Zamfara state recording the highest incidents of 104 followed by Katsina state with 21 and Sokoto with 19 reported cases.” The North [East, Central and West] remain the highest and unprecedented.

President Muhammadu Buhari ‘Proudly Ministers’ includes; Adebayo Shittu – Communication [Skipping NYSC & Limitless Fraud Allegations]; Layiwola Mohammed – Information & Culture [Unfounded Coup Story Letter]; Ibrahim Malami – Attorney General & Justice [Malabu Oil Scandal Payment]; Abdulraham Dambazzau – Interior; Chris Ngige – Labour & Productivity [Nigeria Doctors & Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund [NSITF] Imbroglio]; Rotimi Amaechi – Transportation [Failed Nigeria Railway Project & Leaked Audio]; Audu Ogbeh – Agriculture & Rural Development [1.Cow Insemination by Federal Ministry Agriculture’ for improved milk production by cows, 2.

Capacity of Nigeria Fertilizers Plant, taken into cognizance – Fertilizer Producers and Suppliers Association of Nigeria [FESPAN]; self- exiled Kemi Adeosun – ex-Finance [Falsification of NYSC Certificate]; Hidi Srikika – State for Aviation [Air Nigeria Controversy].

It was during president Muhammadu Buhari that the ‘untamed’ vampires of the Sahel ‘Boko Haram Terrorists’ [BHT] overran more than 20 military bases with impunity, killing, maiming defenseless & arm-less Nigerian soldiers with impunity and carting away military hardware’s, arms, weapons, ammunition’s, supplies and vehicles.

Nigeria is presently at cross road as current and recent insecurity challenges has grounded almost commercial and farming activities in most part of; Adamawa, Borno, Yobe, Sokoto, Katsina, Zamfara and Kaduna States rural communities and making farming activities almost impossible, yet, ‘Proudly Ministers’?

To the incoming ‘Proudly Ministers’ II, ‘Do what you can, with what you have, and where you are’ to avoid the ‘looming revolution’ catastrophe by the oppressed ‘poverty capital of the world’ Nigerians!
