Thank YOU Bren!!
If anyone tells you that the Nigeria of today under President Muhammadu Buhari is at its best or has made significant improvement since he took office in 2015 then such a person either paid to talk and support the government, ignorant or does not understand what truly is the responsibility of the government to him or her. No matter the level of progress this government might think they have made in tackling corruption, one thing is clear; they have done so to the detriment and negligence of areas that matter most. (Nigeria’s Constitution)
Beyond the polarization that the President has caused from just the words he speaks or his body language or the unfortunate things that his media aides say; there are even graver concerns that such statements and gestures have caused. Nigeria like any other nation is a nation of laws. We have a constitution (though not perfect) but there are fundamental rights, understanding and basic things that cannot be taken away from running this country. There are non-negotiable demands from any government including the one being presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari and he has proved not to understand it despite his utterances of being a converted democrat some years 3 years ago.
If you go through the husotry of many nations including the Biblical account of the Israelites you will find that the issue of military and security is priority anywhere.There is a need and urgency and in fact, the fundamental requirement to safeguard the country from external and internal aggression and as it is today we ares suffering from both. Singaporeans under Lee Kuan Yew made effort to ensure that Britain’s Armed Forces remained on ground to safeguard the nation even after their independence in 1965. They stayed put till the mid 1970s and even when they left, Singapore partnered with other countries like Israel, Australia and the United States for training their soldiers. All these never stopped the running of a government to improve the people who practically worked out their greatness. Israel under different kings was engaged in wars of taking territories and safeguarding the home-front.
This is the same for every other nation because it is the fundamental requirement for preserving life and property which every government takes with utmost priority. In Nigeria, it is unfortunately not the case despite being in our constitution and equally a universal human right to live and attain happiness. However, President Buhari despite promising to curb the insecurity of Boko Haram has decided to treat the menace of Fulani herdsmen with a different glove. His first decision as President was to relocate the command centre of the military to Borno State but today Fulani herdsmen are killing citizens, hardworking farmers and still getting compensated for it. One wonders if President Buhari understands the basic duty of his government or any government as stipulated in the Nigerian Constitution. Nigeria remains a nation of laws and the crimes of Fulani herdsmen are grave crimes to humanity anywhere in the world.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the commencement date for the Governorship and State Assembly campaigns ahead of 2019.
This is coming after the Presidential and National Assembly campaigns began on Sunday, 18th November 2018. For the State election campaigns, INEC said their campaigns will begin on December 1, 2018.
In a press release by INEC, politicians were asked to conduct themselves as the country prepares for another election year.
The month of May in the year 1967 was a troubling one for Nigeria especially those from the Eastern region of Nigeria. In a bid for self-preservation which happens to be the strongest human instinct, a people decided on May the 30th, 1967 to determine their destinies in the midst of genocidal threats.
That path led us down a path of war that still leaves a scar even in the minds of those who only read history books. It will be 50 years since Emeka Ojukwu after deliberation with his people decides to declare the Independent Republic of Biafra on 30th of May, 2017.
Some say we should not talk of Biafra, some want to secede, whichever happens, the Biafran story will remain a Nigerian story and we must talk about it. Too many died to simply let go of the supreme sacrifice they made.
In this piece, all I am to do is to share an important document which is popularly known as the Ahiara Declaration, which is a founding document of the defunct Republic of Biafra and her struggles for a revolution.
