A pressure group, the Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) has painted a gloomy future for the nation, warning that except a decisive action is taken to stem the rot in the polity, the country may be heading for anomie and ruin.

Addressing a news conference in Abuja over the weekend, the chairman of the TMG group, Mashood Erubami stated that while the people buckle under the yoke of economic deprivation, joblessness and all forms of social injustice, principal actors in all strata of government continue to display obscene opulence and grandeur.

The group called on the federal government to urgently address the issue of insecurity, unemployment and increasing cases of corruption.

This is coming as Nigeria is plagued by unprecedented bomb attacks, insurgencies, jail breaks and attacks on academic institutions and security establishments.

The also called on the president to limit any form of judicial interference by recalling the suspended president of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami based on the recommendation of the national judicial council.
