PRESIDENT, Igbo Stakeholders Forum, Lagos Chapter and Chief Executive Officer, CEO, Onix Group, a Nigerian corporate giant in real estate and entertainment, Prince Nixon Okwara, in ruminating the state of the Nigerian nation yesterday, in his FESTAC town, Lagos office, told TIMESWATCH, that the precarious and threatening security and economic situation pervading are a fallout of the concerted investments of the successive leaders in wrong policies, poor infrastructure, mal governance, quasi democracy and corruption, investments he noted are now regrettably yielding bountiful dividends.

Okwara hinted that refusal of the past and present leaders to follow ethic and design proper developmental paradigms for a secure future has resulted in what we now see as kidnapping, banditry, terrorism, ethnic agitations and general lawlessness cum criminality, stressing that national viciousness, hardship and insecurity are tightly knitted with corruption and bad government.

“The best Chemistry graduate if not given a legitimate opportunity to earn a living will become the manufacturer of explosives and dangerous chemicals for terrorists.
” All the first class materials who have been emasculated and impoverished by bad govt. will find succour in the domains of crime such as yahoo, ritual killings, armed robbery, etc”, he exploded.

On the way forward, Okwara disclosed that all Nigeria needs is to put a round peg in a round hole in seeking socio economic/ governmental panacea to the nation’s hydra headed challenges, by allowing separation of power, independent judiciary, election umpire and an autonomous local govt. system.
With this, Nigeria will flourish and the agitations and violent crimes will dissipate naturally.

Speaking further, eloquent and astute Okwara pointed that those who make peaceful change impossible make violent ones inevitable, and that those who refuse true democracy advertently and inadvertently plot a dangerous political system.

Ending, he averred that with a democracy based on transparency and ethics, the cumbersome process of restructuring is unneeded.
