Former Inspector General of Police and Chairman of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Alhaji Ibrahim Ahmadu Coomassie, said yesterday Nigeria is heading towards anarchy and eventual disintegration if the problem of bad governance is not addressed.

He lamented that corrupt practices have become endemic and nepotism now a common feature in most appointments and provision of quality education, potable water, efficient health services and power supply have been relegated to the background.

The ACF chairman stated these in Kaduna while chairing a conference on: “The North and The Challenge of Leadership,” organised by Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation and Arewa Research and Development Project (ARDP).

The former Inspector General of Police said the conference, which was organised to commemorate the 52 year anniversary of the senseless massacre of northern political leaders like Ahmadu Bello and Abubakar Tafawa Balewa in an ethnically motivated coup, must be used to seek for ways out of the country’s “political mess.”
