The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has on Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr Boss Maigida Mustapha, and Transportation Minister Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi, to resign immediately.

HURIWA in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja alleged that Mustapha “has derailed significantly from his briefs as the cabinet level scribe of the Federation of Nigeria and has demoted himself to the role and functions of the rabidly partisan spokesperson of the choreographed platform canvassing for a second term race for their principal and President Muhammadu Buhari.”

In the case of Amaechi, the rights group accused him of “jumping ship as a minister to become a full time All Progressives Congress party orgainiser and the Director General of the Buhari campaign council thereby letting the Transportation sector to deteriorate to a level of absolute dysfunctionality and collapse.”

HURIWA also lambasted the Transportation Minister “for turning himself into the official political ‘irritant’ of Rivers State who keeps parading around Rivers state with armed battalion of soldiers and police men to harass, intimidate and disturb the properly, democratically functional state administration of Barrister Nyesom Wike.”

HURIWA called on President Muhammadu Buhari “to appoint a technocrat to head the office of Secretary to the Government of the Federation and redirect the current Secretary to the Government of the Federation to his best suited position as the Spokesperson of the Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 re-election campaign council.”

“The President should in the same vein appoint a competent Nigerian to head the beleaguered and dysfunctional Federal Ministry of Transportation to save Nigeria from any possible aviation disasters following series of invasions of airports across the Country by cattle and herdsmen and the series of incidents such as the falling off of the door of the Dana Airline whilst the plane was taxiing,” the group further said.

It alleged that “the Transportation and Aviation ministry lacks proper coordination and effective supervision because the Senior minister is busy playing partisan politics whereas the junior minister is junketing and globetrotting searching for aviation affiliated seminars and conferences to attend in World capital cities of London, New York, Germany, Canada and Japan.”
