NIGERIA, A COUNTRY THAT BLATANTLY ABHORS HUMAN RIGHTS

NIGERIA, A COUNTRY THAT BLATANTLY ABHORS HUMAN RIGHTS

The lawmakers in the United States of America had stated sometimes ago that Nigeria as a country in a democracy, has a very critical role to play in helping to preserve peace and stability in the West African sub-region particularly, being the most populous in the African continent. It was projected to serve as a shining example of civilization, giving direction on matters of human rights as clearly stipulated in the African charter on human and people's rights.

It is however shamefully disappointing that the expectation of the United States law makers is being rubbished. Nigeria herself, has totally turned to authoritarianism in every sense of human rights respect, shamelessly criminalizing her own laws against the indigenous people. The present federal government being run by Northern Fulani cabals have persistently and variously violated the country's Constitution without any recourse. It ranges from the clear violation of laws guiding the qualification of a citizen standing for electoral office, to blatant disregard to court orders.

When the former British Prime Minister Tony Blair stated that Nigeria is fantastically corrupt, he was exceptionally correct. The Nigerian government thrives in corruption and this evil has held the indigenous population helplessly in captivity. The people are being suffocated by this monster to the point that the bewitched can hardly survive without engaging in diverse corrupt practices. The country has virtually no other ideal invention/production besides kidnapping, human trafficking, ritualism, bribery, harlotry, cyber crime, looting of public funds, occultism, terrorism, tribalism, etcetera. These attributes are what the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) want to clinically separate themselves from.

If the Nigerian government obeys constitutional laws and respects the rights of the indigenous people to self-determination, there certainly would have been recorded tremendous developments. As a member state and signatory to the just laws of African Union, United Nations amongst others, it is really unfortunate that Nigeria keep violating the rights of indigenous citizens on self-determination. One therefore wonders if all the laws and protection made by civilised and reputable international organizations are specifically for certain group of humans. A member nation of the United Nations cannot be recklessly violating the laws in which it is a signatory to and other members states, will be turning a blind eye. This is not only ironic but evil. All international organizations in which Nigeria enlisted her membership should courageously take the bold step of enforcing discipline through the conduction of a referendum for the oppressed and encaged indigenous people in Nigeria.
