Fearing that the coming ninth session of the National Assembly is at the verge of being hijacked by the Executive arm of government and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), a pro-democracy group has called on to elected national legislators to resist the temptation for pecuniary benefits that would culminate in mortgaging and commercialising their constitutional right to elect their hierarchy.

The group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) also called on all lovers of democracy to monitor the activities of their elected legislators at all levels to avert the sinister plots by holders of executive offices at both the national and sub-national levels to undermine the constitutionally guaranteed principle of separation of powers.

HURIWA said it has generated a high network intelligence report from elected legislators of all political divides and that the signals it has received points to a pre-determined plot by President Buhari to ensure the inauguration of a fully choreographed and rubber-stamped legislature that would be led by mostly individuals with past misdeeds which might be used as instruments of blackmail by heads of security forces and the anti-graft institutions slavishly loyal to the President to keep them in perpetual chain of control by the presidency.

HURIWA also sounded the alarm bell that in much of the 36 states, there are plots to cripple the independence of the state legislature and make the lawmakers subservient to the whims and caprices of the governors. HURIWA said Nigerians are obliged to resist this satanic machination of the President and Governors to turn Nigeria into a full banana republic.

The group said on Tuesday that the immediate consequences of having rubber-stamped and non-vibrant legislative arm of government at the national scale are that dictatorship and tyranny will become full-blown even as other fundamental freedoms enshrined in the constitution would be inevitably imperiled. HURIWA said the time is almost running out to stop this devilish scheme to enslave the entirety of Nigerians.

In a statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, and National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf, HURIWA said it has been authoritatively briefed that the moles of the presidency specifically sponsored and manipulated to emerge victorious in the just-ended National Assembly election, have already been told the Presidency approved Senate and House of Representatives’ favoured and handpicked leadership.

It also alleged that the heads of the anti-graft bodies and other security forces have been detailed to ensure that only those persons with clearance from the cabal in the Presidential villa get elected as Senate and House of Representatives leaders with a threat hanging like a Sword of Damocles on “rebels” who may oppose this arrangement.
