Insecurity: Clarke Tells Buhari To Allow Military Rule Immediately, Divide Nigeria Into Six States

Robert Clarke, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to temporarily hand over the government to the military in order to resolve Nigeria’s security and economic problems.

According to Clarke, the military should temporarily take control of the government and divide Nigeria into six states.

According to Clarke, who spoke on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Buhari has the authority under the 1999 Constitution to transfer all of his powers to the military, which will now be tasked with dividing the country into six states.

“Now I’m going to propose about this security. I don’t know whether I may be right or wrong …if anybody feels I’m right, thank God, if they feel I’m wrong let them tell me.

“Now there’s no gainsaying that Nigeria is on the way to collapse. Nigeria has to be changed and the only way to change it is to create a state that will make the 1999 constitution ungovernable for its existence.

“We want a state of emergency to be created in Nigeria today. As it is today, the President, who is the Commander-in-Chief has the powers to delegate all his powers to the chief of defence staff.

“Let him now talk to the Senate, House of Reps, State Governors and House of Assembly Speakers that a state of emergency has been created in Nigeria next week which means that all Governors and legislators must go.

“Then the military will now set up what we call the six geographical zones. Let us start on that and allow a military governance over these states.

“Reduce Nigeria to six states and I can assure you the day Nigeria is reduced to six states and there’s a state of emergency, 80 percent of the money spent on governance will return to the treasury,” he said.

The senior lawyer added, “The military should take over temporarily, get Nigeria back to six States.. there’s a legitimacy involved in it. So let us start from there.

“Nobody is going to stop banditry in Nigeria today because it is a lucrative business. Look at what is happening in the Eastern region now, it’s no longer banditry. It’s becoming a civil war. “
