Independence: President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has no rectitude to preside over the nation’s Independence Anniversary as its insensitivity, impunity and oppressive proclivities are reminiscent of colonial rule.
Instead of celebrating this year’s independence celebration, Nigerians are mourning under Buhari. This administration has, in the last 3 years, turned our nation into an impoverished colony where apparatus of state power has become instrument of oppression against the people.
Under the Buhari-led All Progressives Congress(APC) regime, Nigeria’s constitution has been suspended technically. Governance has reverted to oppression. Our democratic institutions, particularly National Assembly and the Judiciary, have come under siege.
Today, the world is particularly alarmed by the documented cases of human rights violations, executive high-handedness, arbitrary and extra-judicial executions, violence and bloodletting, unlawful arrests and detentions, torture, reported disappearances,etc
