Nigeria is a disgrace to the whole world – Former Minister of Defence

The former Minister of Defence General Theophilus Danjuma has expressed his revulsion at the parlous state of the nation.

Danjuma bemoaned the deepening security crisis across the country, saying the country is experiencing a fatricidal war as citizens kill their fellow countrymen.

Danjuma spoke on Friday in Nwonyo village in Ibi Local government area of Taraba State during his speech as the Chairman of annual Nwonyo Fishing and Cultural festival.

The elder statesman described Nigeria as a total disgrace and laughing stock to the rest of the world.

He maintained that it is important for Nigerians and Nigeria as a country to addressing the prevailing socio-economic and political challenges that beset and put a check on the glaring insecurity and other vices that are bedeviling the country.

According to Danjuma, “the festival stands as a testament to the rich cultural heritage of Taraba State that we cherish and celebrate with great pride. It showcases our cultural values and serves as symbol of our unity. Let us take a moment to reflect on the significance of the occasion. It is a symbol of resilience a d determination of our people in the face of daunting challenges.

“Let us renew our commitment to promoting peace, harmony and celebrate the bonds that unite us as one family. May this occasion be a reminder of who we are and the strength that lies in our unity.

“We must put our own house in order and have peace in our state and throughout the country if we want this to be truly an international festival. There is no sane foreigner who will come to celebrate with us if we continue to disgrace ourselves as we do.

“As we are today in Nigeria, we are a disgrace to the whole world. The whole country is a war front of our people killing our people. We are a laughing stock to the rear of the whole world. We must put our house in order. We must make our roads safe and stop kidnapping people. We must learn to live together as a country and as a people”.
