Elechi Asks Nigerians To Stop Abusing Jonathan, Says It’s Abuse Of Freedom



Ebonyi Martin-ElechiEbonyi State Governor, Chief Martin Elechi yesterday asked Nigerians to watch the way they abuse President Goodluck Jonathan, describing the trend as threat to democracy.

Elechi, who was addressing people of the state at the Democracy Day celebration held in Abakaliki, spoke on “The imperative of freedom in a Democracy,”.

He said democracy did not give Nigerians the freedom to abuse those in power.

He said: “It is regrettable that for some uninformed or uncharitable minds, freedom has degenerated to licentiousness both in utterance and in behaviour, leading ultimately to substantial abuse of freedom.

“The way the President is abused, forgetting the dignity of his office and what he means to the country, is a sad reminder that some of us do not either know the meaning of freedom or have forgotten the journey that brought us so far.

“Public institutions and offices, in so far as they represent the public will, deserve to be respected and, through constructive criticisms, be enabled to flourish. This is our permanent task as citizens of a freedom nation.

“There is also a backward slide in the display of honesty as corruption is taking the centre stage in public life.”

Elechi, however, advised Nigerians to follow in the foot steps of the nation’s forefathers.

He said: “If, from a very harsh background and from challenging beginning, our forefathers laboured so honestly to bring us to where we are today, then we of the present generation has no excuse for a backward slide.”

Elechi also announced that local government council elections will hold in a few months’ time but added a warning, “Let our political gladiators know that this administration will go any length to ensure prevalence of peace borne out of the imperative of the peoples’ right to freedom.”

    The likes of Elechi nd the other pro-Jang NGF are de real threat to democracy. Just 36 governors dat were unable to conduct an election 4 just 2 contestants. There are various definitions to what be classified ‘abusive’. One of such is to decieve, mislead, deny, failed electoral promises, electoral fraud etc.

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
