#EndSars Shows That Muhammadu Buhari Is The Biggest Threat To Nigeria’s Democracy

Published

on

Nigerian elections are like gambling. We blindly toss a coin into the air — with no guarantee of what we get. We vote out one corrupt leader for an even more corrupt one. Or, as we like to say, “you go from the frying pan into the fire.”

Take President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, for example. As the first opposition candidate to mount a sweeping defeat of a sitting president in Nigeria, Buhari — a former general and military head of state —rode the coattails of rife anti-government sentiments to victory in 2015. To those who voted for him, he symbolized a potent antidote to the issues plaguing the country. He promised to blindly fight corruption and cronyism. He vowed to strongarm the terrorist group Boko Haram into retreat or surrender. He also declared that he would stabilize Nigeria’s dwindling economy and fix the existing gulf of socioeconomic disparities between Nigeria’s uber-wealthy few and the majority of Nigerians who are abjectly poor. In a campaign tweet two months before his historic win, he swore a solemn vow to Nigerians. “Let me make you this promise today,” Buhari wrote. “We will protect your children. We will protect your wealth. We will make this country work again.”

Today, nearly six years after making that promise, Nigeria has become a relic of what it used to be. Many signs point to Buhari’s failures. He must go.

The streets are raging with violence. Nigerians are under an unprecedented lethal attack by Buhari’s government, which recently killed unarmed citizens protesting against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a brutal and abusive police force in Lagos. The #EndSars movement has become a global phenomenon. After days of denials, the Nigerian army admitted Tuesday that their officers were deployed to the scene of the deadly attack to ensure statewide curfew compliance. The army still denies opening fire.

Reports coming in from the famous Accra Timber markets suggest some part of the place is on fire and some personnel from the Ghana Fire Service went to the venue without water.

As at now, its not known what might have caused the fire at the market which mostly trades in ‘wood’ by an eye witness account reveals people from the market called the Ghana National Fire Service and reported to them about some place of the market burning in flames.

They say the Fire Service responded to the call swiftly and upon arriving at the place, told the people and the shop owners around that they don’t have water in their truck to quench off the fire which was spreading to other areas of the market.

This left the people and the shop owners to result in a different method to try and quench off the fire and prevent it from spreading to other shops around.

Since the news hit media circles Ghanaians are reacting to it stating Fire Service don’t have water to quench off fire but yet still, the Ghana Police Service yesterday filled their trucks with hot water ready to spray it on #FixTheCountry protestors.

He wrote; ”John Dumelo should be very vigilant, What happen to Ahmed Suale might happen to him. Nana Addo and his appointees are evil, they are planning to eliminate him.#Ibrahone”

See the screenshot below:

Meanwhile, Ibrah One also took his platform to launch fresh attacks on controversial politician, Kennedy Agyapong following his comments on the #FixTheCountry campaign.

In his post, he also said that Karma will one day brutally deal with the Assin Central representative in parliament.
