ELECTION: NIGERIA MILITARY AND THE MADNESS CALLED "NIGERIA DECIDES 2019"

ELECTION:  NIGERIA MILITARY AND THE MADNESS CALLED "NIGERIA DECIDES 2019"

The horrible trojan of war called Nigeria National/State Election 2019, has really brought to limelight, lots of insanity and bloody involvement of the Nigerian Armed Forces. Instead  of confining strictly to their constitutional duties of defending the territorial integrity of the country, securing lives and properties of the citizens, they shamelessly got involved in the decision of leadership and taking over the duties of the police in a supposedly pure civilian/democratic exercise. There is absolutely no reason pretending that Nigeria understands what the mandate of the people is, neither does she have a grasp of civilized democratic norms inherent in electoral processes.

"Nigeria Decides 2019", was more like a declaration of war between the political class and the poor masses, while military brutality aptly defined the dangerous democratic experiment that Nigeria is grappling with. It is no more a difficult task differentiating military regime from democracy in the country. This hinges on the unabated despotic militarisation targeted against the opposition politicians. Although there has been a long existence of impunity  in the administration of Nigeria by her rulers but democracy in the present dispensation, is programmed to suffer worst setbacks under the regime of APC (All Progressive Congress) atrocious government.

That which has over the years, never been witnessed has eventually happened. The lives of ordinary citizens were recklessly snuffed out of them by the same crop of individuals that swore to an oath of office, to protect them. The Nigerian army that could not courageously confront the firepower of insurgency with it's arsenals, suddenly turned around to slaughter quite a number of defenseless, armless citizens in the bid to hijack the democratic mandate of the people. Note that both the officials of the so-called Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and election observers, suffered various degrees of casualties and intimidation while trying to checkmate the activities of the electorates.

While the combined security forces of Nigeria took over the election process, molesting and killing civilians in their desperation to ensure victory for the ruling political party, it remains grossly unconstitutional for the Nigerian army to participate in any form of election. There is no permission under any known law in the country empowering them to intimidate nor suppress harmless, armless and law abiding citizens in an electoral process, in other to drown the voice or mandate of the people.
