  1. Do our leaders at all know the implications of the govt to protect lives and property? They are pushing the country to state of nature, because at a point innocent citizens might not take it but start carrying weapons for self defense and from there the worse takes place. There is no single day in this country you will not hear that many have been killed by BH or herdsmen or any other cult group. If this country is too big for one govt to control, why not create regional govt with regional heads and one head at the centre for better governance? Life is too precious to waste the way it is in this country.
