Nigeria Sliding Into Dictatorship Under Buhari, Group Says



Civil society group, the Concerned Citizens for Constitutional Democracy (CCCD) has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of attempting to run a dictatorship, considering the clampdown on members of the opposition in guise of fighting corruption.

The group in an electronic statement expressed concerns over the “KGB styled” invasion of the residences of former Comptroller General of Immigration, Abdulahi Diko Inde and the resulting terrorising of his family, to the extent that some were crying.
National President of CCCD, Anthony Kolawole noted that it was apparent that the siege laid to Mr Inde’s house by the EFCC was for evidence fishing.

“It is on record that the former Comptroller General of Customs was the one who fully opened the nation’s eyes to the potentials for increasing revenue generation from the organisation and should therefore not be treated like an insurgent. Mr Inde served this country dedicatedly while in office and any poor treatment meted to him will serve to discourage others from giving their best to the nation,” the group lamented. 

“We are not the only ones expressing these concerns as the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu within the past few hours similarly expressed concerns about the growing authoritarianism in the land.
“Confirmation of this is evident in the wholesale defection from the PDP to the APC by persons who now understand that being part of the government and kowtowing to its wishes immunises them from persecution,” CCCD stated.   
The group, therefore, urged Nigerians to condemn these activities of state in persecuting those perceived to be political enemies while treating allies as sacred cows.
The group said it was not against the fight against corruption but it should be done under the ambit of the law.

The group, therefore, urged the Presidency to call off the assault on Mr Inde and re-focus its energy on addressing the nation’s economic woes that were brought on by a distressed global economy‎.

    Former president is learned and wise for him to be fooled with all d money they are saying without him knowing a bit of it . Meanwhile if true d money was looted but the country was better of then than now. As they are fighting corruption at d same time they should stop blaming d past govt and concentrate on all their promises becos they told us during campaign that naija is bad and that they are d only one who can fix it. So they better start telling us what they are doing to improve naija.
