Former member of the House of Representatives, Mr Dino Melaye on the state of  the nation, claimed “the country is suffering from perilous times and it is a demonstration that we are not only sick but equally suffering from what I call a dreadful continental abnormality.”

Mr Melaye, who is the executive secretary, Anti-corruption Network, stated that the emergence of fundamentalist sect, Boko Haram is the concomitant effect of corruption by the ruling class that has emasculated Nigeria.

The former legislator made this known on our daily breakfast show, Sunrise Daily  discussing  the state of the nation and the recent massacre in his state, Kogi state which is one of the state that has suffered series of attacks from the sect.

On his beloved Kogi state, Melaye said “what is being seen in Kogi state is not different from what is being seen in Borno state and other parts of the north.”

“It’s unfortunate that there’s been very serious violence and attack in Kogi state, but the difference between ineptitude in leadership, maladministration and insecurity in Nigeria is the difference between six and a half and a dozen”He said.

According to him, “it is the negative concomitant effect of corruption that we are experiencing and that if the country starts to experience good governance then the insurgency will stop.”
