Nigeria On A Free Fall To Dictatorship


By Hon. Dakuku Peterside

Yesterday 12th September, 2013 represents a black day for representative government in Nigeria with the development in Rivers State where CP Mbu ? led police in the State, funded with tax payers money blocked the elected State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi from having access to Government House.??It is now obvious to the least discerning and the international community that Nigeria is on a free fall to maximum dictatorship. There is no iota of doubt that CP Mbu and the police in Rivers State is on a mission to destroy the last vestiges of civility and democratic spirit left in the land in service of some indiscernible aspiration.??Mbu has effectively turned the Nigeria Police to a political party.??All men of goodwill must rise up and say enough is enough of this encircling gloom as this is not a challenge to Governor Amaechi or the people of Rivers State but a clear affront on elected political authority and democracy itself.
Worse still,??the Obuah faction of PDP and their co-travellers have lost all sense of decorum and displayed their dullness of mind in raining insult on Governor Amaechi.?Obuah and the PDP in every step taken have shown that they lack the capacity to understand the rules of engagement in political discourse.??That the characters parading themselves as officers of PDP in Rivers State are doing so reflects the decadence, impunity and brazenness in the land which is most unfortunate.??Obuah PDP has now assumed the role of deciding who insulted the President of the country as well as those to be persecuted for exercising the right to freedom of association.?This is definitely an ill wind that will not serve anybody any good, if anything, it confirms that our politics is now a baazar.
The uncouth action and words of the Obuah faction of PDP diminishes hope in the land and represent the worst of times for our country.
This insult on the?Government of Rivers State is an affront to all elected political office holders in Nigeria that requires definite condemnation by all lovers of freedom and democracy.??Tomorrow?it will be another State, other elder statesmen in the country and elected public officials until they achieve their goal of petty aspiration and maximum dictatorship.??What is going on in Rivers State shows clearly that the topmost cadre of PDP do not appreciate the enormity of crisis in the land thus confirms that there is no genuine effort at resolving the terminal?crisis that has engulfed PDP.
