The International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) has promised to keep the incoming All Progressives Congress (APC) Federal Government to be led by retired General Muhammadu Buhari on their toes at all times.

The frontline rights group made the promise in a statement issued in Onitsha, signed by the Board Chairman Emeka Umeagbalasi and Head, Campaign & Publicity Department, Barr Uzochukwu Oguejiofor.

According to Intersociety, “Interestingly, time has come for the new APC incoming Federal Government to show Nigerians favourable and alternative policies and actions over many public matters it vehemently opposed under the outgoing Federal Government. One of such key policies is its stern opposition to the use of armed forces in election security, which it caused the judiciary to interpret in its favour Nigerians live to see  the success or otherwise of its civilian poll securitization. At this juncture we call upon the outgoing Federal Government to withdraw its recent appeal against the referenced verdict of the Lagos division of the Federal High Court. Nigerians will see in coming months or years its success or otherwise of non-armed forces involvement in poll security. Others are also its stern opposition to present security policies towards insurgency and violent crimes. Another expected major policy change is the APC’s opposition to present economic policies particularly its promise to make One Naira exchanged for One US Dollar.

“As the APC and its cronies in Nigeria’s rights CSOs and media dominant in the South-West take over the Federal Government and shut down its opposition advocacy industry in the country, there is need for new strong opposition in the CSOs, media and political circles in the country. This is because the fundamental implication of the APC and its referenced cronies taking over the Federal Government is that the South-West media and the CSOs with their APC commanders have graduated into pro-establishment entities. At the level of Intersociety, we have resolved to continue and improve our formidable rights CSO advocacy. As a matter of fact, we have resolved to serve as a formidable opposing independent rights group with forensic searchlight to be beamed towards the official and unofficial policies and conducts of the incoming federal government under APC with the purpose of making it sit up and collectively succeed for collective advantage of Nigeria and Nigerians.”
