We either restructure or be doomed – Ozekhome

Joe Effiong, Uyo

Renowned lawyer and rights activist, Mike Ozekhome, has warned that Nigeria will be doomed if the country is not restructured.

Ozekhome also raised the alarm over “grave impunity, abuse of power and disobedience to the rule of law as currently being displayed by the current government at the centre” and said Nigeria is heading for a doom if drastic steps are not taken to redeem it.

In his paper, entitled: “The Bench, Bar investigating agencies and anti-corruption campaign in Nigeria,” delivered in Uyo, yesterday, as part of the activities to mark the 2018 Bar Week, by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), Uyo branch, the constitutional lawyer accused the Federal Government of hiding under the claims of fighting corruption to weaken institutions established by law, while breeding ‘strongmanism’ to avert probe.

He said the federal government has continued to set its anti-corruption agencies against other arms of government and perceived opposition; treating corrupt officials within the party of government with deodorants, while applying insecticides, pesticides and herbicide on the opposition.

While the security agencies have been pushed by the government to overstep their constitutional bounds on perceived or imagined corrupt politicians of the opposition, he said the system has continued to sweep under the carpet, glaring cases of fraud against those serving under it.

“Under the present dispensation, though the government, led by President Muhammadu Buhari, has sworn to fight corruption to a standstill, impunity and disobedience to extant laws and rules, including the judgment of courts of competent jurisdiction, have become the order of the day.

“The government seems to derive joy in breaching the laws and established rules. There is brazen abuse of the rule of law and glaring impunity all over the country, the judiciary is no more the last hope of the common man, since it is apparent these days that the people at the helm of affairs, who claim to be democratic, prefer the rule of force, which is alien to democracy, rather than observe the rule of law embedded in it.

“The deliberate attempt by the executive to get the judiciary subdued by launching attacks on judicial officers is evident and, to a great extent, whittled the boldness that existed in the arm. The humiliation of serving judges by the executive arm is one of the methods by the government to create an atmosphere of fear, that will enable it conduct its affairs with grave impunity and utter disregard to rule of law, but without check by the other arms of government,” he said.

Citing an instance where the government allegedly displayed corruption in shielding corrupt members of the ruling party and exhibiting selective fight against opposition, Ozekhome accused the federal government of consistently sweeping under the carpet the many allegations of financial misappropriation and scandals among its officials.

“For example, the $25 billion NNPC scandal remains un-investigated, or no one prosecuted, the Babachir Lawal (grass cutter) scandal for which enquiries were carried out by the committee headed by the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, but no one prosecuted, rather, he was replaced with his close kin,” he said.

This territory natives of this generation has Disintegrated which are: Biafra Republic of south east, Niger Delta Republic of south south, Oduduwa Republic of south west, North East Republic, North West Republic, North Central Republic, which must be defended with the Sword in this final conquest of the Liberation Revolutionary Warfare of the natives which ends in Sokoto- the sit of the satan of this natives territory. The only answer is the Sword because the only people against existence securities and freedom of this territory natives are fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria controlled by British bandits and fraudulent criminal America with their fraudulent criminal UN of 20th century world international order. Fulani criminals, British bandits and fraudulent criminal America who are foreigners, who are not natives in this natives territory, do not have native land in this natives territory, do not have stake in this natives territory, do not care about existence securities and freedom of this territory natives, only want this territory natives ruined so as to subdue this territory natives under their political control so as to go on plundering this territory natives God given wealth- it is Futility.

    Existence of the fraudulent political name Nigeria in this natives territory is illegal by law. Existence of fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates in this natives territory is illegal by law. The fraudulent political name Nigeria was not founded by this territory natives. The fraudulent political name Nigeria was founded by British bandits. Majority this territory natives never democratically legitimize the fraudulent political name Nigeria by law. There was never a fulani war victory over northern natives in 1804, on which fulani criminals established their fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates, with which they subjected northern natives under fulani bondage via fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates. Majority of this territory natives never democratically legitimize the dead fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates by law. The dead fraudulent political name Nigeria and the dead fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates must be erased with the Sword in this natives territory of Disintegrated Republics in this final conquest of the Liberation Revolutionary Warfare of the natives which ends in Sokoto- the sit of the satan of this natives territory. This territory natives of this generation must only exist under the natives Disintegrated Republics- Biafra Republic of south east, Niger Delta Republic of south south, Oduduwa Republic of south west, North East Republic, North West Republic, North Central Republic, with economic cooperation and assistance etc. which secures the natives existence and future in 21st century world international order- economy, education, employment, salary, pension, social securities, business, public infrastructures, amenities etc. which must be defended with the Sword in this final conquest of the Liberation Revolutionary Warfare of the natives which ends in Sokoto- the sit of the satan of this natives territory. Existence of the fraudulent political name Nigeria and the dead fulani fraudulent criminal sultanate political government with its emirates in this natives territory are illegal by law, so do all institutions in this natives territory under the dead fraudulent political name Nigeria in this natives territory are illegal by law. The law of the Sword of this territory natives under the natives Disintegrated Republics must erase them in this natives territory in this final conquest of the Liberation Revolutionary Warfare of the natives which ends in Sokoto- the sit of the satan of this natives territory. God given Victory is the natives. Only the Sword decides. God Is With Us!!!
