Nigeria running unwieldy, dangerous system –Prof Remi Sonaiya, KOWA presidential candidate: Politics : Nigerialog.com - Nigeria's Premier Online Forum
Let me tell you about an experience I had recently. I was to go for a meeting in Lagos that was organised by an international organisation. So, I was to, therefore, travel to Lagos from Ife where I live. I said okay I will make my arrangement, get a driver to drive me to Lagos and they said: No way, they refused. Do you know what they did? They sent me a driver accompanied by two policemen in my own country? It is simply because they don’t have confidence, with all the things that they hear that I may get to Lagos alive, or without being kidnapped. They said they want to avoid a situation where I will be kidnapped along the way and that will put them in trouble. They insisted that I must not come on my own and sent a vehicle to pick me up with armed security and to bring me back to Ife after the meeting. I felt so uncomfortable and I felt so sad that this is what my country has become. It is what is happening, the reality on the ground.
