Presently, he noted, the herdsmen are having the field-day all over the country as if they have the backing of the government to enter and destroy people’s farms without being challenged.

“This group of Nigerans creating problems for the farmers are supposed to be declared terrorists group by the Federal Government.They operate every where as if they own Nigeria.

“In actual fact, one needs to agree with the Northern Elders Forum, headed by Professor Ango Abdulahi that the Federal government has not taken the bull by the horn to secure and pilot the affairs of the Nigerian nation in particular, in terms of security  of lives and property of Nigerians”

The socio-political  critic said: “I join other Nigerians to call for the immediate removal  of all the country’s service chiefs who had spent  over four years in office. They have done their best and they should leave the office for other younger officers with fresh ideas.”

Chief Onitiri called on all patriotic democrats of Nigeria and leaders of thoughts nationwide, organized labour and business community to rise up to the occasion and save the nation from total collapse by the operations of Boko Haram and armed bandits.

“The  present administration has not lived to expectation in fighting corruption adequately by being selective in who or not to prosecute. Alas! corruption thrives in the country more than before as pronounced by the Transparency. On the economic front, Nigeria is rated as the world’s poverty capital, ranking third as the world’s poorest nation. This is not good for our country’s image.

“We urge the Nigerian Bar Association(NBA) Nigerian Labour Congress(NLC) Nigeria Union of Journalists(NUJ), the student’s union, and all Human rights organisations not to keep quiet, while the nation is drifting.
