Former scribe of the Nigerian Bar Association, Ilorin branch, Barrister Sulyman Abaya, has berated the President and State Governors over the spate of insecurity in Nigeria.

The legal practitioner in an interview with this medium on Wednesday, asked the President and the Governors to as a matter of urgency and importance, resign.

He said the country has lost its existence thereby seeking foreign security apparatus to address the prevailing insecurity across the country that seems to have defiled all manners of approaches.

He lamented that banditry and kidnapping, killings have become the order of the day in Nigeria saying criminality is now been perpetrated every day and everywhere.

He added that people can no longer go to the farm, sleep with their eyes closed, or even travel on our roads because of the fear of being kidnapped, killed, or rape.

“The growing insecurity has shown the whole world now that Nigeria has lost its sovereignty, and the country can no longer help it than to invite the United Nation or the foreign to come in and protect our life and property which is the first constitutional duty of the government of the day.

“This implies that the government of the day seized to be in existence and it’s inactive. Nigeria is now in a state of ‘nasty, brutish and short’ as propounded by Thomas Hobbes.

“The major way out of this mess is for the President of the country who is the Commander-in-Chief of Armed Forces should resign and also all the Governors of 36 states with the Minister of Federal Territory should resign because they’ve failed the country.

“Then, we will invite the foreign bodies to manage our security and when that happens, we will say Nigeria will collapse into a state where plebiscite will be used to make a decision whether we should remain as one entity or not. Unless the security is protected, the complete existence of Nigeria has collapsed.”

Abaya also bears his mind to the continued protest for the financial autonomy of the judiciary.

He said there is an urgent need for the citizens to join the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria and storm the streets in protest for autonomy.

Abaya berated the citizens for being insensitive and unconcerned over an issue that involves everyone in the society.

He added, “I expect every Nigerians to go to the street and protest with the JUSUN to effect a change. The citizens have now become so unconcerned, this is the height of insensitive. If citizens cannot join the judicial staff, is it the ghost that will do that? There is an urgent need to compel the chief executives to do the needful. Governors are not doing anything.”

It would be recalled that the judiciary workers in the country have embarked on a strike to enforce governors across the thirty-six states of the federation to implement executive order 10  granting the judiciary financial autonomy.
