Obanikoro: New Min­is­ter of

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

So, the Federal Govern­ment should close their eyes and al­low the La­gos State Govern­ment to take over its land. Some of you writ­ers just write with bi­ases. Don’t for­get that La­gos used to be the Federal Cap­i­tal Ter­ri­tory and that the Federal Govern­ment has and still owns prop­er­ties in La­gos. If La­gos State wants to build es­tate, there are lots of vast lands in Bada­gry, Iko­tun-Egbe, Ish­eri-Idimu, Iko­rodu. Please writer, tell the La­gos State Govern­ment to stay out of federal lands.

Enough is enough: Let’s work to­gether to stop them killing our chil­dren

This is a most ap­pro­pri­ate pro­posal in the dire sit­u­a­tion we have found our­selves. But there is one big prob­lem - most people here in the North, where the prob­lems clearly em­anate, do not be­lieve that there is a re­li­gious in­sur­gency of this mag­ni­tude in the first place. They in­sist that there is no “Boko Haram” and hud­dle at some con­spir­acy the­o­ries in­stead. You may not blame them, see­ing the com­pli­ca­tions the mat­ter has as­sumed; but what hope is there to mo­bilise the civil so­ci­ety against this drift to the abyss if the cause re­mains elu­sive in their eyes?
