Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has said Nigeria is on the brink of bloody civil war following the security situation within the nation.
Fani-Kayode, in an interview on Sunday Politics, stated the nation is now more than divided than ever, with security situation engulfing each part of the nation.
He stated everyone should feel concerned because the nation seeks a solution to its security problems.
“This nation is on the brink of war, the security situation is so bad that it’s not just ok for us to get up and be throwing stones, for instance, on the president and the governors and saying they haven’t carried out enough.
“We’ve got to proffer solutions to the problems that we’re all facing. We additionally may be able to say something to them privately which we might not be able to say publicly, because it might create an even higher problem,” he stated.
Fani-Kayode added: “This nation is divided now, divided into regional, ethnic and religious lines, we can’t run away from that fact, everything that’s taking place today, I was in your programme and I informed you what would occur as far back as 2015.
“And sadly, I’ve been proved right. There is no such thing as a point in going on about who is right and who’s wrong, it’s time for us to come together to speak to one another.
“Northerners should talk to Southerners, southerners should talk to northerners, Christians should talk to Muslims, APC should talk to PDP and APGA should be included and anyone else who’s a leader, every stakeholder on this country must come together because what we face is a situation which might cause a very brutal, bloody civil war for the next 50 years on this nation.
“And believe me, we are there on the ground and we interact with people and if you look at what is happening within the North, if you take a look at what is occurring within the Middle Belt, you look at what is occurring within the Southwest and South-South and South East, all you see is chaos, carnage, murder, killings and kidnapping everywhere, usually by the same suspects.
“It’s a very tragic situation which affects each and every one of us, so if you are a leader that’s still practising politics within the normal way, that’s to say there is no level in dialogue, then you are not really a leader. It’s time for us to come together, bury our differences as one and try to solve the issues of this nation together.”
