Jonah Jang, former Plateau State governor, has said Nigeria is better off under military rule than the current democratic dispensation.
Jang, who spoke at a recent event in Abuja organised by conveners of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self Determination, said his experiences in government has enlightened him on the realities facing the country.
Jang said it will almost be impossible to fix Nigeria from what he has discovered, adding that the nation may not survive for long.
The former senator said the earlier Jesus returns, the better for the country.
“I am not advocating for military rule, but to me, having been in the two systems, I think Nigeria was better off during the military, and I want anybody to challenge my position. If Jesus doesn’t come back soon, I don’t know what will become of Nigeria,” he said.
“My experience as a military and civilian governor, and even going to the National Assembly has been an eye-opener. All I can say is, Jesus should have mercy on us; we have sinned; all of us, no exception.
“I don’t know the human beings that will be able to repair Nigeria, except God himself, in his infinite mercy to intervene in our present situation. If you imagine the foreign loans this administration has taken, you will conclude that IMF and World Bank are wicked.
“They are wicked to generations yet unborn in Nigeria. Unfortunately, these approvals started while I was in the Senate; it was one of the reasons I said I was not going back to the Senate. May God just help Nigeria.
“Sincerely I think the earlier Jesus comes, the better for us; let’s just go home. Let this world’s matters be closed once and for all. The Bible says there are some things we will only understand when we get there, otherwise there are so many questions to ask. Man’s heart is truly desperately wicked.”
