Nigeria is in a state of anomy - Sen. Adokwe

A Chieftain of the oppo­sition Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP), and Senator representing Nasara­wa South Senatorial District, Suleiman Asonya Adokwe, has alleged that the country is almost in a state of anomy.
Adokwe who disclosed this in a chat with journalists in Jos, said, “This is a reflec­tion of the chaos in the coun­try, which possesses a lot of danger. The country is very divisive and in the last two years, it has been polarised with people who won election and has refused to transform themselves into statesmen.
“Kidnapping is in the in­crease. We thought we had downgraded Boko Haram, but every now and then they still create havoc with audac­ity, they were reported to have attacked Maiduguri recently”, he lamented.
“You cannot walk from here to there without the fear of running into one form of endangering situation or the other; herdsmen rampag­ing everywhere without hin­drance and the government is not calling them to order.
“So we are almost in the state of anomy where any­body can just wake up and make some outrageous calls and statement.
“The All Progressives Con­gress (APC), led government are accusing themselves of nepotism, President Muham­madu Buhari was accused of nepotism and now, they are accusing the Vice President of the same nepotism”.
The PDP Chieftain further lamented that, it portends danger for the nation and clearly reveals that the state need to exert some measure of power and authority over it citizens, because the duty of every government first and foremost is the provision of welfare and the protection of lives and property.
Adokwe who is also the Senate Committee Chairman on Information, Culture and National Orientation, stressed that, “If we are no longer safe in a country, then government would have failed in its duties.
The lawmaker however de­scribed the recent quit notice given to the Igbos by some Areas Youth as not only un­constitutional but treason­able and urged the relevant security agencies to treat it as such.
