The APC led government in Nigeria has so much created contentions in the country to a point that the divisions among the tribes, and ethnic groups have never been this bad in the country, the killings on daily basis by the Fulani herdsmen, the looting of public treasury by public officer holders in APC. The party has created safe heaven for looters, the chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole publicly said during one of their rallies ahead of the 2019 elections while urging those in the opposition parties who were charged for fraud that, “once you, join APC, your sins are forgiven.” And true to his words, the likes of Orji Kalu, former Governor of Abia, and Senator Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom who were not members of APC before but defected immediately there were corrupt charges hanging on them. Kalu who was already charged by EFCC had his charges temporarily withdrawn.
Court orders are flagrantly abused by the APC led government. Nnamdi Kanu, Sambo Dasuki were detained against court injunctions to release them unconditionally. It till took a long time, and series of legal battles before Kanu was eventually released. Another unjust incarceration by APC led government is that of the leader of Nigeria’s Islamic Movement, (popularly known as Shiites) Ibrahim El Zakzaky.
The Shiites have peacefully protested the release of their leader, the Federal Government of Nigeria, used military force against them – unarmed civilians, killed hundreds of them, and recently labelled them a terrorist organisation, same way, the proscribed IPOB while the Fulani herdsmen as a group that is presently on the World Terrorism Index as the 4th deadliest terrorist organisation notorious for the incessant robbery, and killings they perpetrate in Nigeria are not proscribed.
This brazen act of injustice has broken the tiny thread that has been binding Nigeria as a country, and with the Shiites recent proscription, what is imminent now, is disintegration. The hunger, poverty, and injustice in the land have flayed so many, and talks of revolutions are now freely discussed and considered among many groups even on social media.
