The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Get together (PDP) in the course of the previous elections mentioned that Nigeria’s democratic course of had been ruined by a dictatorial cabal and promised to proceed combating for Nigeria, democracy, and justice.
The Nigerian judiciary, similar to each property of our realm, has been sabotaged and undermined by an overreaching and dictatorial cabal, who’ve undone nearly all of the democratic progress the Peoples Democratic Get together and its administrations nurtured for sixteen years, up till 2015.
Can Nigeria proceed like this? Just lately, former United States Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, averred that Nigeria had rolled again the democratic beneficial properties she made in 2015. When democracy is rolled again, the economic system, the society, and the judiciary won’t be far behind. Right now, the nail has been placed on the coffin and the beneficial properties we collectively made since 1999 are evaporating, and a requiem is at hand.
To those that suppose they’ve damaged my spirit, I’m sorry to disappoint you. I’m too centered on Nigeria to consider myself. I gave up that luxurious twenty years in the past. The query shouldn’t be if I’m damaged. The query is that if Nigeria is entire?
This isn’t a time for too many phrases. It can suffice for me to remind Nigeria of this — we’re an unbiased nation, and we’re the architects of our destiny. If we don’t construct a free Nigeria, we might find yourself destroying her, and God forbid that that must be the case.Atiku Abubakar – pulse.ng
