State of Emergency in Anambra Looms

State of Emergency in Anambra Looms

The federal government of Nigeria has threatened to declare a state of emergency in Anambra.

This threat came on Wednesday. They said it was the best way of cautioning insecurity in the state.

Laughably, declaring a state of emergency in Anambra is a clear understanding that the government has failed.

The declaration of a state of emergency is possible when the government of the day feels that the constitution of the state is not being able to sustain the livelihood of a particular segment of the country. At this point, they suspend the constitution and come up with laws which ordinarily were not necessary and codified in the constitution.

As a way of ending the issue of insecurity in Anambra state, the federal government of Nigeria wishes to suspend the constitution and handle the case more autocratically.

Funny to say, the same Nigerian government has not seen any reason why a state of emergency should be declared in states like Niger, Borno and other Northern states ravaged by banditry and Boko Haram insurgencies.

For many years, the northern part of Nigeria has suffered in the hands of these terrorists and the government did not see any reason to declare a state of emergency in those areas.

Anambra is their problem. They want to declare a state of emergency in Anambra because they feel that the South East doesn’t need to be heard.

Because of the fact that speculations are making rounds showing that elections are likely not going to hold in the state come November 6th.

The federal government threatened to declare a state of emergency in Anambra if they perceive that the election will not hold in the state.

Places where the state of emergencies are needed are not declared but Anambra.

Unfortunately, some of the Igbo leaders are turning deaf ears to the cries of the people.

Like I always say, no matter what you do, what is written is written.
