A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Robert Clarke, on Sunday warned that Nigeria may collapse in the next six months due to the challenges affecting the country.
Clarke while speaking on Channels TV said, “Many things are happening and I swear by my father’s grave, if care is not taken Nigeria will collapse in six months time.”
The senior lawyer lamented the increase of insecurity in Nigeria while reacting to the warning released by the Department of State Services, threatening to arrested people causing disunity in the country.
He said, “You see, the problem with Nigeria is that those who should know don’t want to know and they do not know.”
“The security session is talking and talking and talking. What are they doing? The security in this country is so bad today that I, Robert Clark, I cannot guarantee Nigeria staying another six months.”
“The problems are overwhelming and have been created by these same politicians since 1999 constitution came into being and this crop of politicians who were swimming in Abacha’s loot and trying to form as many political parties as possible for him (Abacha) got into money and came into politics, Nigeria has never been the same.”
“Nigeria is worse than it was in 1982. What is the cause? The cause is the leadership we have.”
Meanwhile, popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has declared that past administrations as well as the government of President Muhammadu Buhari have not handled the issue of bandits correctly.
He stated on Monday that the bandits have not been engaged enough and that is why there has been a recent increase in their activities.
