A foremost Non-Governmental Organisation known as Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA has urged security agencies in the country to effect the arrest of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)
The group said this while reacting to a leaked video in which Tinubu promised to offer monetary rewards to potential voters who would have voted for the incumbent president.
In a statement by HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, the group while urging Nigerians to cast their votes based on clean conscience, bearing in mind that Nigeria has become the world’s capital of poverty and also very unsafe, accused security agencies of playing double standard and behaving like APC slaves by not inviting the party chieftain for questioning.
The statement partly reads, “It is sad that the institution of the law enforcement have become like armed guards of the party that produced the incumbent president by either chasing after leading political opponents of president Buhari or engaging in the illegal profiling of Igbo speaking officials of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) since after the botched February 16th election even when the Niece of president Buhari in INEC Mrs. Amina Zakari reportedly heads the logistics and operations committee in the electoral commission blamed for the surreptitious eleventh hour’s postponement of the long scheduled February 16th 2019 presidential and National Assembly Polls.”
The group, however, challenged electorates to consider the issues of ballooning poverty; high youth unemployment and widespread insecurity including unrelenting terrorists attacks and armed Fulani killings in the last three years as necessary factors that should govern their choices before they cast their votes given that the future of Nigeria is at stake.
