STATE OF EMERGENCY, WHO BENEFITS?
With the declaration of state of emergency in Adamawa, Yobe and Borno States, President Jonathan has surely put all naysayers in their rightful place, relegated to the dustbin of ignorance. Nigeria is under attack, and from what is unfolding it seems the opposition has played into the hands of insurgents with their continuous barrage of attacks on even good works of the Government. Not that criticism is not a welcome development, but constructive criticism is far more desirable than blind lust for power. One can only hope and pray that our collective mistakes are appreciated by all so that we may return to paths of normalcy soonest. Perhaps it is time for both sides of Nigeria, Government and opposition; to take stock of the damage they have both willingly and unknowingly caused our great nation by their actions and inactions. We must as a matter of neccessity therefore, stand with our Government in building our country during these trying times.
