Yagdah Danboyi (Rtd), Commodore, Foundation for Civilian Peace in Nigeria (FCPN), a non-governmental organisation says the country is gradually collapsing in the face of the current security challenges facing the nation.
Danboyi who disclosed this at the inauguration of the South-South chapter of the foundation, Thursday in Warri, Delta State, noted that something urgent must be done to rescue the nation from the different security challenges plaguing her.
He said to curtail such security challenges rising from kidnaping, banditry, armed robbery and youth restiveness, etc, the foundation was conceived.
According to the retired senior Naval officer, these challenges prompted Nigerians of like minds to come together to form the organisation with a view to addressing them, just as he disclosed that the foundation was incorporated and inaugurated in Abuja last year respectively.
“Gentlemen, you will agree with me that Nigeria is collapsing today and that is the reality.
“Worried by the daunting security challenges confronting this country, people of like minds from different parts of this country, sat down and said, let us at our own level work to address some of the security challenges,” he said.
Danboyi said inauguration of the South-South chapter of the foundation would open a new beginning to finding lasting solution to the “nation’s internal threat rising from political unrest, social disturbances, economic sabotage, mundane criminality and economic agitation.”
On his part, zonal commandant of foundation, Samuel Umufiedo, assured that he would work every one in the zone to restore peace to the area.
