The Prominent Civil Rights Advocacy Group- HUMAN RIGHTS WRITERS ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIA (HURIWA) has expressed disappointment and consternation that the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration has systematically and methodically destroyed constitutional democracy and is gradually replacing that with dictatorship of the unelected cabal made up of Muhammadu Buhari’s bloodline and relations who surrounds AsoRock Presidential Villa as members of the Kitchen cabinet.
In a brief statement to mark the May 29th 2021 DEMOCRACY DAY, the Rights group said the government of the day has established corruption, permissive economic crimes amongst top federal government officials connected to the first family either by tribe, religion, marriage, or party affinities, impunity and lawlessness at the highest levels.
HURIWA lamented that the President Muhammadu Buhari has allowed armed Fulani militia to continue to destabilize North West of the Country to such an extent that armed members of the MIYETTI ALLAH cattle dealers ASSOCIATION are now permitted by the express body language and morale boosting supportive statements from the Presidential officials to now commit atrocities and mass killings in Benue State.
HURIWA alleged that the Armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria have successfully been transformed into Armed forces of Northern Nigeria with only Moslem Northerners manning all strategic internal security Architectures since the Year 2015 and are right now committing grandscale of mass killings in the South East of Nigeria.
The media Statement by the National Coordinator Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media Affairs Director Miss Zainab Yusuf said that sadly, insecurity has denied millions of Nigerians of the enjoyment of the Constitutionally protected and guaranteed fundamental freedoms of the citizens such as freedom of Movement, Right to life, Freedom of ASSOCIATION and freedom of expression just as the Rights group said the government has now started deploying members of the Armed forces to the South East of Nigeria to shoot-on-sight youngsters whose crime is only that they were born Igbo in the South East of Nigeria. HURIWA however said Commanders of the Nigerian Police Force and the Armed forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria including President Muhammadu Buhari who are now committing mass killings in the South East of Nigeria will inevitably be prosecuted before the International Criminal court in The Hague NETHERLANDS for these crimes against humanity.
“We are convinced that the current administration has increasingly failed to stop the extrajudicial killings of the Youngsters in Igbo LAND under the guise that they are members of the Indigenous peoples of Biafra (IPOB) already banned by President Muhammadu Buhari through an irregular way by obtaining a kangaroo injunction declaring IPOB as a terrorist organisation.”
” It is evidently clear and factually unambiguous that this same Muhammadu Buhari-led administration through the Senior Special Assistant on Media Mr Garba Shehu has consistently defended armed Fulani herdsmen who ought to be declared a terrorist organisation long ago but for the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari personally supports their activities”.
“It will amount to intolerable insanity for any Nigerian to celebrate the Democracy Day given that the President Muhammadu Buhari has on his own pocketed both the judiciary and the Legislature which are essential institutions to enforce the Constitutional checks and balances that are of imperative demand in any constitutional democracy.”
“So where is the Constitutional democracy in Nigeria when both the Chief Justice of Nigeria Tanko Muhammad and the Head of the Legislature Ahmed Lawan are in the pockets of the Head of the executive arm of government-President Muhammadu Buhari?”
“Nigerians must wake up from slumber and ensure that the Country does not slide into a state of war which is exactly where it is now headed due to the rudderless leadership and the compromised heads of the judiciary and legislature thereby occasioning the emerging dictatorship of the few unelected politicians and political Jobbers who surround President Muhammadu Buhari in the name if being members of his kitchen cabinet. We restate our fear that it willmtake Nigeria recover from the demolitions of all democratic institutions by the current administration and un terms of the monumental debts that President Muhammadu Buhari has pushed the Country into, it may take us a century to repair this damage to the National economy. It is regrettable that the absentee President Muhammadu Buhari has allowed a regime of rogue officials to decimate and degrade our COMMONWEALTH. The stealing of public fund going on amongst the Cabinet ministers of President Muhammadu Buhari is epic and devastating “.
