Any Government That Fails to Protect Its Citizens Has Lost Legitimacy - Ekeremadun says

Senator Ike Ekeremadun , Senator representing Enugu West Senatorial District, has said that any Government that fails to protect its citizens has lost its legitimacy, he made this statement while advising the federal government to seek foreign help to fight insurgency in the country .

Ekeremadun made this statement on Tuesday at the Senate sitting while reacting to a motion moved by Senator Sani Musa on the recent abduction of students by bandits and Boko Haram terriorists' hostage at Shiroro and Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State.

The Senator said "Any government that fails to protect its citizens has lost its legitimacy, the federal government should not be ashamed to seek foreign support."

He therefore called for the total shot down of Niger State to deal with the problem just as the country was shut down during covid-19 pandemic in the country.

Meanwhile, Senator Musa who moved the motion said the atrocities of the bandists and terriorists in Shiroro Niger State have reached a dangerous stage and warned that Abuja the federal capital city is no longer safe.
