Even the government's Police Affairs Minister, David Jemibewon
, and the Anambra State Governor, Chinwoke Mbadinuju
, are strongly in support of vigilante alternative to the proper rule of law.Their support for illegal methods of combating crimes in Nigeria demonstrates the height of loss of confidence in the ability of the government, they are serving, to provide sufficient security for lives and property.
Proper rule of law is primary for economic growth and development.This, not only ensures life and personal security, it also provides a stable framework of rights and obligations which can help to reduce political risk to investors and to cut down transportation costs.Lack of proper rule of law not only drives away foreign businesses, but also hinders domestic businesses.Business do not thrive in an environment of unchecked abuses of political power, unchecked violence by security personnel, and unchecked corruption ( official and non-official ). In the case of unchecked corruption, the poor are regularly forced to pay a premium for public goods and basic services, such as access to education, water, public transport, health-care, medicines, and official information.
