Tambuwal Throws Shades At Buhari, Asks Nigerians To Reject 'Prison-Yard Democracy'
The Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal is shaking some tables.
The tables he is shaking have on top self acclaimed extra-ordinary people and dignitaries.
Perhaps he is setting the tone for his next political move.
The governor has urged Nigerians to reject what he called “prison-yard democracy.”
This he said is exemplified by the ignoble meddlesomeness, rascality and high-handedness of some security agencies against democratic institutions in Nigeria.
Tambuwal said this in a statement released in Abuja, on Tuesday.
The statement quoted the former Speaker of the House of Representatives as saying, “Nigerians must, in strong terms, say no to prison-yard democracy, where the rights of the citizenry are shackled to the caprices of a few as if we now run a nation of helpless inmates.
“If the people of Nigeria are so unfortunate to endure the growing nightmare occasioned by deprivation of most things that a democracy should ordinarily provide; if they are now accustomed to the pangs of hunger, unemployment, shabby infrastructure, poor healthcare and general hopelessness, they should, in the interest of democracy and the youth, stand against anything that has the potential of robbing them of their inalienable rights to live and make choices as free citizens.”
Tambuwal condemned the ongoing political logjam in Benue State as well as the activities of the police which last week barricaded the residences of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, in an attempt to prevent them from presiding over plenary.
Tambuwal said, “These are unfortunate incidents, an aberration, a reprehensible attack on the fundamental human rights and privileges of fellow Nigerians and a direct attack on our fledgeling democracy.”
