UNIZIK Law teachers 50th Conference:Osinbajo laments increasing agitations, fingers political elites



www.odogwublog.com reports that the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has blamed the increasing cases of agitation across the country on the failure of the country to deliver on the basic needs of the people, forcing them to seek for succor in their respective tribal groups as the way out.

He said the political elites failed the people through massive embezzlement of funds meant for their social welfare.

Speaking during the Golden Jubilee Conference of the Nigerian Law Teachers Association held at the auditorium of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, Osinbajo said most of the security problems confronting the nation are inflicted by corrupt practices, injustices, among others.

He wondered if the legal system of the country could survive and serve its purpose without serious and incisive reconsiderations, insisting that it is the duty of the three arms of government to provide the enabling environment for the quality of life expected by the people.

 "The Boko Haram in the north east, militants in the Niger Delta and farmer/herdsmen clashes were as a result of poverty. Many of these agitations
 center around the failure of the state to create an inclusive society, a failure to guarantee the security of lives and property by the agencies charged with the
responsibility and to build trust around the rule of law and justice system of administration.
He said lack of provision of basic needs of life to the largest number of people remained the greatest source of tension in the polity. He decried the level of unemployment that makes the Nigerian youth vulnerable.
Earlier, the Anambra State governor, Chief Willie Obiano, expressed worry over the rate criminals that are being granted bail by lawyers, a development which he described as an ugly trend. He called on the delegates to take advantage of the conference to proffer lasting solution to the ugly trend.
