A pro-democracy and civil rights advocacy group, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has described as the height of hypocrisy and insensitivity for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to skew the headship of the three constitutional arms of government – Executive, Judiciary and Legislature in the hands of Moslems through illegal manipulation of federal might and intimidation and also totally exclude one of the largest ethnicities – Igbo speaking people of South East of Nigeria and to entertain World leaders pretending to be a democrat.

HURIWA said the Buhari’s administration by working assiduously and actively, even openly, without qualms or reverence for the constitution to exclude Christians of Nigeria and Igbo ethnicity in the leadership of the major central governmental administrative organs has done so to bring to the fore the widely held beliefs that he has an incurable phobia for real practicing and principled Christians and has also demonstrated an uncanny knack for exhibiting publicly some deeply entrenched hatred towards the Igbo nationality.

The rights group attributed this to some pedestrian, primordial and unscientific reasons which are best known to him and which can only be assuaged should he instigate the lawful inclusion adopting the principle of doctrine of necessity to legally appoint a Christian to step in as substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria and also legally assign strategic security and political positions equitably distributed amongst the diverse ethnicities and adherents of all religions including Atheists and traditional African Religious worshippers.

“Your government practices apartheid kind of policy of exclusions targeting Igbo essentially and Christians substantially and yet you gather guests from far and near to celebrate the memories of Chief MKO Abiola who is known for openly employing all kinds of people in his flourishing businesses and who even, when he chose a Moslem running mate, still won votes of 99percent of Christians because he was never associated with bigotry or phobia for practicing Christians because within his private and public spheres were persons from all ethno religious affiliations.

“But now we have President Buhari who, as soon as he was sworn in clinging what was called Islamic Handbag, flew into Saudi Arabia to attend the Organization of Islamic Cooperation which offends section 10 of the Nigerian Constitution and whose government adopted every trick in the book and unconstitutional conventions to circumvent the Nigerian constitutional federal character principles by excluding Christians from ever heading any of the three arms of government and to totally liquidate Igbo speaking persons from any of the first half a dozen public offices mentioned in the Nigerian constitution.”

In the statement by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf, HURIWA said looking at how the heads of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial arms of government are headed by core Northern Moslems, what is at play is a state of convoluted degeneracy from constitutional democracy to totalitarianism and an autocratic leader as President in the person of Muhammadu Buhari.

The rights group particularly lamented about the Judiciary which it said “is headed, in the time being, by a Moslem jurist who was railroaded against social justice and true justice, and against constitutional safeguards which specifies separation of powers and President Buhari administration’s ruthless and shameless deployment of an ethically-challenged Chairman of the Executive controlled Code of Conduct Tribunal, Justice Danladi Umar, who was manipulated because of accusation of alleged N10 million bribery by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) headed by a rabidly partisan Moslem Alhaji Ibrahim Magu to force out the only Christian Justice, Walter Onnoghen, to head the Judiciary of Nigeria in the last thirty years.
