Nigeria is a war front — Danjuma

Nigeria is a war front — Danjuma

Former Defence Minister General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma (rtd) has expressed deep concern over the escalating security challenges in Nigeria.

He described the country as a war zone and an embarrassment on the global stage at a gathering at the Nwonyo International Fishing and Cultural Festival in the Ibi Local Government Area of Taraba State on Friday.

He emphasized the urgent need for Nigerians to halt internal conflicts and prioritize safety to foster development.

“As we are today as Nigeria we are a disgrace to the whole world. The country is a war front; our people are against our own people. We must put our own house in order because right now we are a laughing stock to the whole world,” 

“We must stop killing each other. We must make our roads safe, our homes safe, must stop kidnappings. There is no sane foreign person that will come to our country to celebrate with us if we continue to kill each other and make our roads unsafe for people to move around.”

The International Nwonyo Fishing and Cultural Festival is an avenue to showcase the over 80 ethnic groups resident in Taraba and it was held 14 years after it last took place in 2012 during the previous administration of late Danbaba Suntai.

The opening ceremony was well attended by people from all walks of life.
