Abayomi Azikiwe, PANW Editor, Featured on RT Satellite Television Speaking on the Political Crisis in Libya
Abayomi Azikiwe appeared on RT satellite television worldwide news broadcast on Tuesday, May 8, 2012 to discuss the current political crisis in the North African state of Libya. That same day what appeared to be an attempted coup was carried out when militia gunmen tried to assassinate the western-backed prime minister who was installed by the United States and NATO.
Since the overthrow of the former leader Col. Muammar Gaddafi during August-October of 2011, the country has been plunged into chaos. There is widespread corruption and inefficiency, workers in the oil industry are demanding accountability from the bosses, criminal activity is growing and there is no opportunity for legal opposition activity since any effort to advocate on behalf of the Jamahiriya system is outlawed by the rebel NTC.
There is no central authority and militias roam the country armed. Since many of them have been cut off from monthly payments, discontent is escalating. Billions of dollars are reportedly missing resulting in an announcement that the finance minister will resign from the puppet government.
