Insecurity: Nigeria has become laughing stock across the world – T Y Danjuma


A former Chief of Defense Staff, General Theophilus Y. Danjuma, rtd., says Nigeria’s security challenges has made the country a laughing stock across the world.

Making the observation on Friday at the annual Nwonyo Fishing and Cultural Festival in Ibi Local Government Area of Taraba State, Danjuma urged the Nigerian authorities to, as a matter of urgency, redeem the battered image of the country by addressing the security challenges bedevilling the nation.

Danjuma was of the view that no person, especially foreigners, would be willing to come to the country to invest or visit tourist sites when their security is not guaranteed.

“No person or group of persons will want to come to our state or country if we continue to kill and butcher ourselves,” he said.

Lamenting the security challenges that have enveloped all parts of Nigeria, he said it has become necessary for those in positions of authority to make the country safe for all and sundry.


“If we continue to make our roads unsafe for people to move around, our dreams of making Nwonyo fishing and cultural festival an international festival, can not be achieved.

“It is sad that Nigeria as a nation has become a laughing stock following the security challenges.

“All hands must be on deck in order to insert the right pegs in the right holes.

“As we are today, we are a disgrace to the whole world. We must put our house in order because right now we have become a laughing stock to the whole world. So we must make our roads safe.”

Also speaking at the event, the governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, said his administration would work round and clock to foster mutual cooperation with the Taraba State Government.
