Nigeria Is Under Water But Where Are Crises Managers?
Author: Paul I. Adujie | October 15, 2012

Nigeria is sinking into a disaster and catastrophic mode. Food scarcity and exorbitant food prices are increasing. Petrol scarcity and inflated prices for all types of fuels are skyrocketing, all of these, are a direct consequences of the ongoing ravages of floods nationwide in Nigeria. Nigeria is not at war and yet, major federal roads and highways are closed for days! There is profound absence of government response. All of these make any reasonable persons want to ask, What Is The Purpose And Role of Government In Nigeria? Disaster Relief should be primary in the minds, on the lips and reflected in the actions of all of all political leaders in Nigeria. But, quite unfortunately, there is so far no response from various levels of Nigeria's local or municipal, state and federal government to the flood mess. Where are Nigerian Armed Forces and paramilitary personnel? The government of Nigeria should declare a national emergency and deploy Nigerian military and paramilitary to aid passage. And to undertake the construction of emergency roads and bridges, and therefore ease passage for all Nigerians who are now stuck between points and some others who are stranded in the middle. There should be no doubt about this, a cataclysmic event is unfolding in Nigeria. This is a national disaster and catastrophe and it could worse, there could be cholera epidemic or pandemic as a direct consequence of this nationwide flooding! Nigeria's national government should wake up and lead. President Goodluck Jonathan should declare a national emergency and get Nigerian military and paramilitary to do emergency and remedial repairs!
