Word alone cannot express the trauma long suffering Nigerians have been caused to bear in the last 6 months on account of the election into office of Mr. Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives’ Congress. What was misconstrued to be a wind of change has turned out to be the mistake of the century.
The Peoples’ Democratic Party Patriots’ Alliance has watched the Nigerian economy crumble. We have watched the local prices of petroleum products leap abnormally where they are not entirely scarce. We have watched businesses close down.
Job losses are now norm in a society our great party left on a steady path to progress and sustainable development.
According to the lies churned out by the governments’ paid media, electric power generation has peaked at over 4,800MW but there has been no tangible output experienced by Nigerians in supply. Violent crimes have risen tremendously while the ranks of the Nigerian Army is being depleted by members of the Boko Haram sect whom Nigerians were assured will be defeated in 30 days from May 29th 2015.
Unfortunately, the government of Mr. Buhari notorious for wickedness, witchcraft, fraud and mischief considering the promises it made Nigerians during the electioneering period appears determined to play Nero – who fiddled as the city of Rome burned. This government, the worst and most non-responsive of all civilian governments since 1960 with rare pride, crass impetus and insensitive audacity still parades itself as a legitimate institution responsible to no other but itself.
It is disheartening that as Nigeria records one new low after another on all critical economic indicators, all the failed government of Mr. Buhari has to offer as safety net is a desperate attempt to perpetrate itself in power by resulting to an open abuse of state apparatus. These attempts being played out in alliance with some members of the Judiciary and the Department of State Security if unchecked will place Nigeria at par with states like Sudan and Chad whose absolute leaders are very close allies of Mr. Muhammadu Buhari.
Never have judgments of the judiciary been openly disregarded as Nigerians have seen in a case like Dasuki Sambo Vs. The FGN. Never has the popular will of Nigerians during elections been distorted as is been played out in the case of Rivers State & Akwa Ibom Peoples Vs The FGN. Never has the rights of a people to self determination been waved off as the world is witnessing in the case of Nnamdi Kanu/IBOB Vs The FGN. All these are calculated attempts by Mr. Buhari & his gang to take Nigerians 35 years backwards.
It is therefore in response to yearnings from Nigerians from all walks of life – home & abroad that the Peoples’ Democratic Party Patriots’ Alliance has risen to say a resounding NO to executive rascality as is been institutionalized by the APC. The outcome is therefore the Uyo, Akwa Ibom State #RallyForDemocracy.
Nigeria and Nigerians have come a long way in the struggle for emancipation from economic slavery & poverty. The United Nations Charter grants a right to dignity to all humans – the right of Nigerians to better life must therefore be respected by government at every point in time; including the absolute monarchy operated by Mr. Buhari and the All Progressives’ Congress.
We therefore beckon on all Nigerians of goodwill to come out en masse and join us as we march the glorious City of Uyo, Akwa Ibom State – the wonder-city of Africa in demand for responsible leadership. The non-violent protest is a direct confrontation with tyranny and civilian dictatorship. A battle against deceit and lawlessness it shall be. A strong demand for a fulfillment of the social contract legally binding the ruler-ship of Mr. Buhari & Nigerians.
The journey towards a better Nigeria has commenced with the Peoples’ Democratic Party Patriots’ Alliance at the forefront. We will stop at nothing to ensure that maximum rulers trading as nationalistic leaders are shown the way out of power so our dear country can return to the path of progress and recovery.
God bless Nigeria.
