Feb 22, 2015 – Tackling The Insecurity Problems In Nigeria Volume 1

According to Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of need, “SECURITY” is a cardinal need of man. As the saying goes, ‘Safety First’ reveals that security is a major factor needed in fast-tracking meaningful development in any society, without which, the opposite becomes the case.

In ensuring safety of lives and properties, all hands must be on deck because, security is every man’s job, however, the government has a greater role in this regard, as it is the coordinating machinery in actualising the very crucial need of man.

In tackling this challenge, certain factors must be considered, of which one is; ensuring the eradication of illicit drugs within the Nigerian Society by reducing to its minimum the demand and supply of such substances.

Yes, the government has put in place an institution, agency responsible for that task, nevertheless, the agency that is supposed to be given priority based on the significance of its assignment, coupled with the number of workforce, has almost been neglected by the Federal government owing to its under funding and lack of incentives to boost the moral of the officers, whom even in the face of this limiting factors have continually put in their very best.

Illicit drug is a major factor behind most violent crimes and insecurity at large. The attacks on NDLEA offices by Boko Haram in the Northern part of the country where drug exhibits were carted away by the rebels, also points to the fact that, even these Men are into illicit drug.

To check mate this menace, the government should make more effort to strengthen the anti-narcotic agency through more funding, as well as welfare packages for the staff, while creating an enabling environment for a drug free Nigeria.

    This criminal president is the force behind Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria. His mission is to kill thousands and displaced millions of Nigerian northerners that will not vote for him in that region of the country. He is the most corrupt and unpatriotic president in Nigerian history for using Boko Haram terrorists(Jonathan’s siblings) to kill innocent children, mothers and fathers for the past six years. He had six years to kill, defeat, and destroy evil activities of Boko Haram insurgency but he choice to allow the killing and gross destruction of people’s properties by his siblings to continue for six years. Now that he knows for sure that he will lose the next presidential election to General Mohammad Buari in a landslide defeat, he decided to deceive Nigerian voters by sending our military men to fight and rescue those that have been kidnapped for about six years. President Jonathan is finally calling his guys(Boko Haram terrorists) to lay down their weapons and release those in their custody for his own political gain. Who is deceiving who in Nigeria? He had six years but did nothing, but he has decided lately to defeat his evil friends by postponement of the fixed presidential election date by six weeks all for reelection strategy. This zoologist turned politician will do anything evil to cling to power against the will of Nigerian people. The bribery, political intimidation, voter’s suppression and intimidation, divide and rule strategy, and the election postponement are all evil and unpatriotic strategies for this do-nothing president to cling to power at all costs. May God Almighty deliver our beloved nation from this criminal, unpatriotic, unintelligent, and most imcompentent president ever in Nigerian history. Amen.
