Femi Fani-Kayode, the former Aviation Minister, while reacting to the news of the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onnoghen’s arraignment before an Abuja court on Monday January 14th, due to the latter’s alleged refusal to declare his assets, said democarcy in Nigeria is dead.
In his words;
Deji Adeyanju in custody and being framed with murder.
Dino Melaye in custody and being framed with attempted murder.
Doyin Okupe in custody and being framed with corruption.
Sambo Dasuki in custody and being framed with corruption.
Ibrahim Ek Zak Zaky in custody and being framed with murder.
Nnamdi Kanu in exile and being framed with treason.
Meanwhile the Chief Justice of the Federation has been added to the list. Buhari has directed that he should vacate his seat and prepare for arraignment on criminal charges on monday.
This is all part of a well-crafted script. The bitter truth is that democracy is dead in Nigeria. If anyone thinks that Buhari intends to leave power this year or anytime in the near future they need to think again.
