  1. It’s only in difficult times being witnessed in Nigeria today that true leaders emerge.
    And I am appealing to South Western and Eastern Regional governors to double their efforts and put on real girdles in anticipation of whatever comes in the wake of the recent alert of an al-queda attacks on the southern part of the nation.
    Besides Amotekun, there’s a very urgent need for the formation of a very credible intelligence agency. Sometimes ago, the federal government banned individuals from carrying small arms for protecting themselves while Fulani herdsmen are roaming around with AK 47. Where did they get get these from?
    Anti ballistic missiles that had been installed in the south west (Lagos, Ibadan, Ado Ekiti, Akure, etc) from colonial times were removed from the region and in order to cover the government track pipelines were set ablaze.
    It’s therefore time for the governors to be introspect and be 24 hours awake if they don’t want to be caught napping in the name of politics. They should create an unassailable security system along with a credible intelligence system asap.
