The Continued Detention Of Nnamdi Kanu, Sunday Igboho And The Errors Of The Nigerian Authorities
Your entire mainstream homes and social media platforms went agog on the announcement of the re-arrest of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu in Kenya. The announcement got here instantly from the Lawyer Common of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami. So, for the Indigenous Individuals Of Biafra (IPOB) and supporters of her chief, Mazi Nnmadi Kanu, it was fairly displeasing and an annoying second. For all those who hate Nnamdi Kanu or his methods, it gave the impression of probably the most thrilling information of the century. For APC led authorities and the Fulani Oligarchs in Aso-rock, it was their best achievement which referred to as for celebrations, as if the person was the issue of Nigeria.
Some days after the arrest of the IPOB chief, the following largest information that broke in Nigeria was the assault of Sunday Igboho, the chief of Oodua Republic agitators. His home was ransacked and his aides killed with officers of DSS claiming accountability. However to the perfect of my data, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho constituted no issues for Africa, Nigeria or Muhammadu Buhari’s APC authorities.
Kanu and Igboho are merely exercising their constitutional rights to self-determination, freedom of speech and proper of affiliation. The duo haven’t killed anyone and no court docket in Nigeria or elsewhere, has convicted them for any violation. However Buhari and his authorities is seeing them as the issues of Nigeria. But, there stays many big issues going through Africa, Nigeria and APC that has been left unsolved however as a substitute, they go after proverbial rats.
Muhammadu Buhari as a misplaced precedence, goes after misplaced agenda.
Since inception of his authorities, the Nigeria financial system went on her kneels, bandits have unabatedly been rampaging each state of the nation, from the east to west and from the south to the north. No day has ever handed with out the information of Fulani herdsmen terror assaults amongst others. Boko Haram has reclaimed and captured most elements of Borno State, which was a free and a peaceable State. They’ve additionally entered many different states that had been free earlier than the emergence of this authorities. Lots of such states at the moment are underneath the management of Boko Haram terrorists.
The above talked about circumstances are a few of the main issues of Nigeria and Africa, not Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or Sunday Igboho. Banditry is now a legalized enterprise within the north, kidnapping of college youngsters is now a daily prevalence and negotiating with bandits and Fulani terror herdsmen is now the norm, a brand new ministry or parastal in Nigeria, with their Minister appointed as Sheikh Ahmad Gumi. This has develop into the system in Northern Nigeria, that the federal authorities now offers them federal allocations. There is not going to be surprises in the event that they even resolve to funds for his or her terror actions within the subsequent funds plan. If we’re truthful to ourselves, these are the primary issues of Nigeria and Africa normally, not IPOB or Oduwua.
Equally, the storms surrounding the Minister of Communication and Digital Financial system, Isa Ali Pantami, highlights the fragility of democracy and it is guardrails in Nigeria, with the laborious activity required to strengthen the nation’s fragile socio-political material. Pantami’s name for a jihad and unalloyed help for murderous teams, painting him as a dyed-in the wool Islamic fundamentalist and fanaticism. But, Muhammdu Buhari and his APC authorities don’t see him as an issue to Nigeria however have appointed him as Communication Minister, to manage the nation’s large knowledge and phone infrastructure, amongst different delicate particulars of nationwide intelligence.
“This jihad is an obligation for each single believer, particularly in Nigeria”, “Oh God, give victory to the Taliban and al-Qaeda”. These had been the precise phrases of Pantami in one among his ferocious preachings within the 12 months 2000. In a second speech delivered in 2006, Pantami provided his public condolences for the dying of the chief of Al-Qaeda in Iraqi, Al-Zarqawi. “Might God have mercy on Ahmad al-Fadil al Khalayleh, rahmatullah alayhi. Might God forgive his errors. He’s a human being. He has actually some errors in entrance of God, so Might God forgive his errors”. Who am I speaking about? He’s Abu Musa’ab al-Zarqawi.
Regardless of the way you could be seeing Pantami, he’s additionally an issue to the nation. However at the moment, he’s holding one of the delicate positions on this authorities. Buahri doesn’t see him as an issue. As a substitute, Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho are those being detained unjustly.
Sheihk Ahmad Gumi, a outstanding Muslim cleric and former military Captain, first emerged on the scene in February 2021 after he went on a so-called peace mission to a gaggle of bandits of their forest hideouts at Zamfara State. Since then, he has additional undertaken different such visits to Kastina, Kaduna and Niger States to barter with them.
In one other event, he stated: “kidnapping youngsters from college is a lesser evil as a result of ultimately, you may negotiate and that bandits at the moment are very cautious about human lives. This was after the kidnapping of about twenty (20) college students from Greenfield College in Kaduna State in April 2021, the place he (Gumi), reportedly urged the Central Financial institution of Nigeria to pay the group accountable, their demanded ransom of $260, 000 with ten (10) Honda Bikes. That is certainly laughable! Are you able to simply think about the mess Nigerians are presently into?
These are the issues confronting Nigeria and never Mazi Nnamdi Kanu or Sunday Igboho.
Muhammdu Buhari ought to particularly go after the issues of his nation and cease working from pillar to publish. The arrests of Mazi Nnmadi Kanu and Sunday Igboho are clear errors that can value greater than Nigeria to deal with.
