Onye Nkuri, a Nigerian based Political and International Affair analyst has said western intervention in Libya is moving Nigeria towards becoming a failed state.
The Social Commentator said this in a series of tweets noting that the West is more likely to accelerate state failure in the Sahel/West Africa, than prevent it.
According to him, Local governance in Northern Nigeria collapsed about 20 – 30 years ago.
He also said for Nigeria, the only people who can prevent the country from falling are the political elite but that they lack the competence & conviction to prevent the country from failing.
His tweets read, “There’s state failure all over the Sahel, and its moving southwards – towards Nigeria,” he said
“It was accelerated by the Western intervention in Libya. So let’s understand that the West is more likely to accelerate state failure in the Sahel/West Africa, than prevent it.”
“Some African states will fail this century – within the next few decades. And most of them will be in the Sahel.”
“The only people who can prevent Nigeria from failing are the Nigerian political elite – but they lack [like (sic)] the competence & conviction to prevent state failure.”
“Don’t be fooled by Western military operations in the Sahel, they are irrelevant in the wider scheme of things. Local governance in Northern Nigeria collapsed about 20 – 30 years ago. All the drone bases in the world cannot give Northern Nigeria competent local administrators.”
