…Says Nigeria Snowballing Into Ungoverned Space
Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has told Nigerians to beg President Muhammadu Buhari to resign immediately.
The group is worried by the expanding frontiers of terrorism in the North West and the unprecedented levels of armed kidnappings in Katsina, Niger, Zamfara States and the constant bombardments of parts of Southern Kaduna State by armed Fulani attackers.
HURIWA raised the alarm that Nigeria was snowballing into a huge ungoverned space requiring the joint actions of World leaders and the United Nations to stave off the imminent collapse of constitutional democracy.
The rights advocacy group believes that the reason the attackers were becoming much more daring was because of the toxic body language of those in control of the political layers of power in Abuja.
The group also noted that all this was happening because of the fact that all the strategic security positions in the internal security architectures were headed by persons who share same ethno-religious orientation with the majority of the armed terrorists who were threatening the National Security and were getting away with their antics.
HURIWA said since Buhari does not believe in Federal Character in the appointment of security Chiefs and since his persistent and serial nepotistic appointments in the last 6 years has brought the nation to a near failed state, the next best option was to plead with him in the name of God to resign honourably.
HURIWA said, “it will be more honourable for President Buhari to tender his letter of resignation if he still loves to see Nigeria remain unbroken.”
The rights group said this in a statement by the National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media Affairs Director Miss Zainab Yusuf and made available to DAILY POST on Sunday.
The group regretted that since 2015, “the nation has increasingly become one huge ungoverned space following the abdication of their constitutional functions by the President and the commander-In-Chier of the Armed Forces Buhari”, who, according to the group, “has rather chosen to focus on promoting the primordial agenda of his religion and his Fulani Ethnic nationality to the deyriment, disadvantage and endangerment of the territorial integrity and national security of Nigeria.”
The rights group said the deeper cause of the national security crises facing Nigeria is the absence of an independent National Assembly since 2019 when the lackeys of Buhari were elected as the Senate President and Speaker of the Federal House of Representatives.
In the thinking of HURIWA, President “Buhari’s failure and unwillingness to decisively deal with the armed Fulani attackers because of Ethno-religious consideration is the motivation needed by such terrorist organisation like the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association to continue to threaten States that have decided to pass legislation banning open grazing of cattle.
“The Nigerian President at the moment has decided to fruitlessly chase after the private interest of cattle owners who are his kinsmen whilst neglecting his core function of protecting the territory of Nigeria from invasions by such armed groups.”
HURIWA carpeted the presidency and the National Assembly for failing to take lasting and actionable measures to combat the terror attacks while condemning the President “for failing to officially list these armed Fulani militias in those forests as terrorists and to seek clear, unambiguous international interventions by the United Nations and such nations like the United States, United Kingdom, Canada.”
HURIWA called on the National Assembly to move for the impeachment of President Buhari who can’t protect Nigerians from ‘favoured terrorists named bandits’.
HURIWA said it won’t be shocking if the terrorists were able to take over the newly purchased Tucano military jets because the current administration was unwilling to wage a law-based war on terror against the armed Fulani attackers.

Six Parties Ready To Merge, Contest Against APC, PDP – Moghalu
A former presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, Kingsley Moghalu has claimed that at least six political parties have indicated their interest to merge and form a mega party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Moghalu stated this when he hosted Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo, the candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) for the November 6 governorship poll in Anambra State.
The ex-Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, who recently defected to the ADC, also called on Nigerians to register in order to be eligible to vote in 2023.
DAILY POST quoted him him: “We hope to be a key part of a much larger third force that is building up for the presidential elections which will include a merger of about six or seven or more parties.
“So, I believe that in the 2023 elections the citizens of Nigeria should not allow it to be a contest between two sides of the same coin because there is no difference. It should be a battle between the old and the new – between the old Nigerian and the possibilities for a new Nigeria. That is what 2023 should be,” Moghalu said.
