Nigeria: DSS’ Invitation Of Mbaka Is A Deliberate Risk On Spiritual Freedom

In a functioning democracy, a prison sentenced to demise may have his/her demise delayed ought to a priest or an imam slated to carry out a non secular operate falls sick or turn out to be incapable of exercising that function on the late hour. The reason being as a result of non secular freedom, like different human rights corresponding to; freedom of affiliation, expression, and many others. is inalienable and simple proper. So, even a condemned prison has rights and may have their rights protected. As soon as such is denied, it turns into a dictatorship, a tyranny and a despot that assumes and subsumes the legislature and the judiciary. It turns into the prosecutor, decide and jury. That’s an invite to anarchy. It’s completely fallacious in each method and must not ever be tolerated.

As a priest, Reverend Father Ejike Mbaka has the non secular authority and the constitutional proper to non secular freedom. It’s a proper given to every particular person from delivery; it’s not given by authorities. Throughout his new 12 months eve mass at adoration ministry floor, he(Mbaka) prayed for the chief of the Indigenous Individuals Of Biafra(IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. In his on phrases, the priest affirmed that it’s his proper to bless Mazi Kanu, and he’s appropriate. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is a prisoner of conscience who dedicated no crime. Kanu’s solely crime is that he’s demanding a referendum date for his individuals to resolve their destiny within the British contraption, Nigeria. This what the Nigerian authorities referred to as against the law. However referendum is a peaceable and democratic means of settling disagreement. 

Terrorism and banditry are one and the identical. It’s a crime towards humanity perpetrated by the Fulani. But, Mallam Nasir El’Rufai, the governor of Kaduna state calls this evil exercise a enterprise, and had overtly admitted to paying the criminals utilized in these acts. Sheikh Abubakar Ahmad Gumi, a Muslim scholar and imam prays for, negotiates for and dines with these terrorists. At no time have DSS invited him, by no means!

The president, who by the way in which is Fulani, refers to them as repentant and affords them clemency.


And I ask; If these criminals can have rights to non secular purification and rights to clemency, why then ought to it’s against the law to supply such to an harmless man? Once more, if Sheikh Gumi can communicate on behalf of terrorists, how can anybody decide offense as a result of Reverend Father Mbaka is praying for, and blessing a prisoner of conscience?

The invitation of Mbaka by the Division of State Companies (DSS) is the fault of United States of America for deferring to United Kingdom and cherry selecting which human proper to defend. Throughout President Trump administration, america authorities pursued the protection of human rights primarily based on the demand of overseas coverage bureaucrats relatively than the protection of the structure. In complete deference to United Kingdom on Africa associated issues, particularly within the contraption referred to as Nigeria and the genocide they’re committing, United States authorities solely made an intangible inserting of Nigeria on a non secular watchlist and seemed the opposite method as sequence of human rights violations occurred. Nevertheless, as intangible as that inclusion appeared, no matter quasi progress made, vanished the second Joe Biden’s secretary of state, Anthony Blinken and the state division he leads determined that financial curiosity beats defending human rights. This he did however eradicating Nigeria from that checklist unanimously. That singular choice has emboldened the dictatorial authorities of Buhari. That’s the reason Reverend Father Mbaka has been invited.

The USA ought to, and should reverse her course as a result of it’s endangering non secular freedom and different human rights.
