Nigerians are witnessing unprecedented trampling and bastardizing of our tender democracy recently with lots of dramas particularly in the courts.
A new phase of desperation and recklesness of the ruling class was ushered in towards the 2023 general election with the ineptitude of these politicians reaching it’s zenith recently.
The popular saying “Judiciary is the last hope of the common man” is now a laughing stock amongst the oppressed in this country considering what is happening at the moment.
These desperate politicians have succeeded in weakening Democratic Institutions in the country; fostering lawlessness and wild-spread corruption in the land thereby, creating danger to the smooth sail of our democracy.
The ongoing Kano governatorial tussle and in some other states is a clear indication of this desperation by those who are hell bent to wrestle power with impunity; to further confirm this, recall the recent election in Kogi State where some INEC Staff doing the bidding of some politicians were caught with pre-filed election results in favor of a particular party even before the election started.
The present administration must be admonished not to allow greed drives it towards using state institutions in crippling the same democracy that brought it to power.
The case in Kano has drawn lots of attention nationally and even beyond the shores of the country with the judiciary caught in-between and must come clean to save its face to regain it’s dignity.
The inconsistencies recorded in the ongoing case in Kano is an indication of selfish interest to the detriment of the people.
Dear President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, you must not allow this bomb to go off, the people of Kano must not be punished for the sake of some few; Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf must not be used as the scapegoat.
Our security heads must advise against this shameful scheme to confiscate the mandate of the people; capable of exacerbating the fragile security situation in the country.
