Nigeria, as Buhari left it today, can be said to be literally sitting on a keg of gun powder awaiting explosion. Nigerians have been pushed to the wall for a very long time, and they have gotten to their elastic limit. Nigeria is a nation that is not at war but has seen more killings than Syria that is in full-blown war.
Failure of governance, bad economy, hunger and brutal killings are an integral part of the problem.
It all started when the fake Buhari told Nigerians in an interview that he wasn’t going to treat the Igbos like the rest of Nigeria because they gave him 5% votes. He was cheered and the Igbos were mocked that they put all their eggs in one basket.
When He appointed Northern and Muslim service Chiefs and even broke the federal character principle, some section of the country said it was nothing serious, as he was only appointing the people he can trust.
It got to the point of sending security agents to mow down Ipob peaceful and unarmed protesters, yet Nigerians justified it. Nnamdi Kanu was arrested and detained. They called for proscription of the group and people were happy.
