“Nigeria is in disarray. Things are hard and getting harder by the day. We can’t be safe when there is no role of law”
By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Famous author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has stated that heroes who can make courageous judgments are needed to rescue our country’s spirit since Nigeria are now in disarray.
On Monday, August 22, 2022, during the Nigerian Bar Association’s 62nd Annual General Conference, NBA-AGC, in Lagos, Grammy-nominated Chimamanda delivered this statement in her Keynote Speech.
Chimamanda said in her address: “Nigeria is in disarray. Things are hard and getting harder by the day. We can’t be safe when there is no role of law. Nigerians are starve of heroes to look up to. Late Dora Akunyili and Gani Gawehinmi were heroes that Nigerians looked up to before now. Unfortunately that era has gone. I believe that NBA is in a position to give the nation, heroes that we can look up to the lead the nation.
“In this country, we swipe aside injustice in the name of peace. For as long as we did not untie the long rope of injustice, peace cannot thrive. We fail to hold leaders accountable, my experience makes me thinks that there is something dead in this country and I think it is time for collective resolution.”
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president, and PDP presidential candidate, Peter Obi, a former governor of Anambra and Labour Party presidential candidate, Godwin Obaseki, the governor of Edo State, Simon Lalong, the governor of Plateau State, Justice Alogba Kazeem, and former NBA presidents are just a few of the notable figures who attended the NBA-AGC.
