Actress and politician Hilda Dokubo has criticized the government for portraying Nigeria as a safe country while moving with extensive security escorts. Dokubo highlighted the failure of politicians to improve the standard of living for residents despite the significant revenue generated from oil.

According to Dokubo, Nigerians deserve better access to healthcare and education, similar to what citizens in other oil-rich nations enjoy. She accused politicians of downplaying the severity of insecurity and hunger in the country while acknowledging the truth by traveling with large security escorts.

Dokubo said;
Quote
“When the essence of a thing is unknown, abuse is inevitable. And, that is exactly what we are going through right now. Nigerians are being abused. We are being compared with countries that do not have crude oil, forgetting that some other countries have oil, and their citizens are not paying as much as we are paying (for petrol and diesel).

If the government had given us the quality of life enjoyed by those people they are comparing us with, it would have been okay. In those countries, children from birth to the age of six have access to free healthcare. They get quality education almost for nothing. They also have policies that work. People can speak freely without being called enemies. But, what do we have here? Is it safe?

“The level of insecurity in Nigeria is shameful. How do we work? What is the state of nightlife in the country? These politicians think their lives are easy, because they travel with 20 bodyguards and policemen. Why don’t they travel alone? They won’t do that, because they know that the country is unsafe. Everyone who does business that thrives at night, just like most entertainers, are not finding the situation funny.”
