The former Minister of Aviation has warned Nigerians to avoid a second Civil war and stop inviting foreign countries to solve our problems for us .
Fani-Kayode said Nigerians problem could only be solved by Nigerians .
He said this in a statement tweeted in his verified tweeter handle on Monday .
According to him , hose that are looking to the international community to “save” Nigeria from Nigerians and solve our problems fail to appreciate the fact that the challenges that we are faced with in our country today were induced, fuelled, sustained and sponsored by those very same foreigners.
“You don’t call in the wolves to settle an argument between chickens. You don’t call in a tiger to settle a dispute between lambs.
“The truth is that they enjoy it when we are at each others throats. It gives them joy.They want us to kill ourselves in a second civil war from which we will never recover so that they can come into our land, strip us bare, render us powerless, steal our mineral resources, turn our people into refugees and slaves, humiliate us in a manner that is best imagined, pick up the pieces & establish a new order .
“Leadership of their own in what is left of Nigeria. If you find this hard to believe, study world history and consider the legacy and practice of Western civilisations and nations. The pattern is always the same: they carve up and destroy everything that they touch and they fed .on the blood, misery, misfortunes, agony, tears and suffering of their victims.
“We MUST solve our differences and our problems ourselves and we must avoid a second civil war at all costs.”
