The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NU) has berated Nigerian politicians saying that their actions in recent times are capable of derailing the country’s democracy.

National President of the NUJ, Mr Mohammed Garba, made this known in Abuja yesterday during a public presentation to address the current political unrest in the country as well as the recent assault on journalists in Rivers State while carrying out their social responsibility.

Garba observed that the political tension in the country is assuming frightening levels and that recent happening in the political arena calls for concern, especially among the stakeholders who fought to ensure that democracy in Nigeria is thriving.

“We have to be very careful, politicians have not learnt their lesson, and the way things are going in Nigeria today politicians are going to frustrate the democracy which have been seriously fought for in the country”, the NUJ president said.

  2. The House of Rep is the most chaotic democratic institution in Nigeria. There appeared to be more rascals, thugs, immature men & people with questionable character who does not know their limit in a democratic setting. Another group of politicians that are causing problems in our democracy are the govs especially the 2011 set..Majority of them cannot govern nor know what governance is all about. They are formenting trouble in their states resulting in crisis and death. Some talk so carelessly insulting the President and feel they are more powerful than him notwithstanding the fact that they are 1/36 while the President is 1/1. The Senate shows much maturity eventhough they cannot be exonerated from blame.
