Military Regimes Destroyed Nigeria – Sir Rolland Owie

Ex-Chief Whip of the Senate, Sir Rolland Owie has come out to blast Nigeria’s political class and the military for showing a lack of capacity to lead the nation.

He recently revealed that the country is only existing because God wants it to and we can only hope a new regime rescues us in 2023.

According to him, military regimes destroyed Nigeria and it is sad that we now have a nation where the convoy of a sitting governor will be attacked by armed bandits.

He added that our security situation is laughable too but he is not shocked since all the heads of security agencies are from one part of the country.

His words, “Forty years ago the naira was 90 kobo to a pound and 60 kobo to a dollar and that same 1980, President Shehu Shagari’s government started building housing estates in all the state capitals, today, those housing estates have been abandoned.”

“The naira today and dollar and pounds are not comparable. It is a shame, there is nothing to celebrate apart from that God still allows Nigeria to exist. Where is the metro line that Lateef Jakande started in Lagos during the UPN regime, abandoned. It is unfortunate.

“Where is Aladja Steel, where is Ajaokuta steel, where is Nigerian Airways, where is Nigerian National Shipping Line, where is Bacita sugar company, where is Iwopin paper mill? All gone into oblivion. It is a bad affair that children who inherited property from their fathers will destroy it.

“Military regimes destroyed this country. They brought corruption into this nation. When Murtala Mohammed started dismissing civil servants ‘with immediate effect’, senior civil servants who tried not to be corrupt, waiting for their final retirement and benefits, they were dismissed ‘with immediate effect’ those following them behind where shocked and that is why they were disappointed and now believed that they have to prepare for their future, that was how they brought corruption into the civil service as a result of the dismissal of top civil servants who tried not to be corrupt.”

“Where are we today that the convoy of a sitting governor will be attacked by armed bandits and security men including police and soldiers died, is that a country? One side of the country trying to dominate over another side of the country, is that what we should celebrate, impunity everywhere?

“A nation that there is no security? The president comes from Katsina state, half of the local government in that state is under bandits. All the heads of security agencies are from one side. Where there is no justice, there cannot be peace, injustice gets to a level that God hears it and punishes the people who are involved.

“What are we celebrating but I believe God in his infinite mercies with what He did in Edo election, I know he will repair this nation in 2023 because as we are now, there is nothing we are only hoping on2023 when a responsible president will emerge like Yar’Adua who for only two and half years, he tried to turn this country around Jonathan built almajiri schools in the north, all those schools have been abandoned, nobody attends them.

“All our brothers in the north have all run from home to Abuja because they refuse to develop their own people so we have to change”
