A pro-Democracy and Non-Governmental organization, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has warned President Muhammadu Buhari that unless he pedal his aggressive and careless talking ministers, the nation may be thrown into chaos before, during or after the forthcoming elections.

HURIWA in a list mentioned the All Progressive Congress top officials and some APC senators as instrument of war that was pushing Nigeria to the cliff of irrevocable civil war.

HURIWA, in a statement said, “specifically condemned the deployment of hate speeches by the ministers of Transport and Information Mr. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi and Lai Mohammed, the National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) Mr. Adams Oshiomhole; Ex-governor of Akwa Ibom state and decamped Senator Godswill Akpabio and the Media Assistants to the President, targeting prominent opposition politicians such as the Presidential flag bearer of the main opposition political party, Peoples Democratic party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar and other members of the PDP such as Senator Dino Melaye and Dr Doyin Okupe who are working for the election of their candidate and former Vice President.”

The association also condemned “Buhari’s administration for running illegal political prisons under some law enforcement institutions such as DSS and Nigeria Police force.”

More so, it accused President Muhammadu Buhari of keeping political prisoners such as erstwhile National Security Adviser Colonel Sambo Dasuki; leader of Shiites Islamic Movement Sheikh Ibraheem Elzaczacky and civil rights campaigner Mr. Deji Adeyanju in clear breach of bail orders granted by different competent courts of law.

HURIWA “therefore called on World leaders to mount pressure on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately free all political prisoners languishing in different underground detention centers.”

It bewailed that “the ruling APC has decided to abuse their privileged positions by using the law enforcement agencies such as the Nigeria Police force; DSS and the EFCC as attack dogs to frame up major political opponents belonging to the PDP including Atiku Abubakar who has just been slammed with a phantom allegation of playing a role in the collapse over a decade and half ago of the Bank PHB which was a private business enterprise.”

It added, “HURIWA expressed disappointment that whereas indicted erstwhilst officials including former governors produced by the Peoples Democratic party with serial graft allegations hitherto hanging on their necks like the sword of Damocles have had those damaging allegations of theft of billions of Dollars belonging to their States pardoned since they hurriedly joined the APC, the EFCC and of late, the Code of Conduct Bureau and Tribunals have become agencies for politically motivated media trials and evil plots.”

Also, it laments that “Oshiomhole had during the weekend in Edo State whilst welcoming some defectors from the former ruling Peoples Democratic party to the current ruling All Progressives Congress confirmed that APC is a refuge whereby any member of the opposition PDP that cross carpets into their fold would have all their graft allegations pardoned by President Muhammadu Buhari.”

HURIWA said “the fact that President Muhammadu Buhari has maintained conspiratorial silence to the open criminalisation of members of the PDP by the National Chairman of APC and his confirmation that members of the PDP with cases of fraud who joined their fold would enjoy Presidential pardon shows that the Federal government is simply playing to the gallery by making bogus claims of waging war against corruption and Economic Crimes whereas what is at play is simply choreographed attacks targeted at political opponents of APC.”

HURIWA has “therefore resolved to petition World leaders on the activities of these federal government officials and agencies which may precipitate civil war if not called to order to stop their widespread deployment of hate speeches against political opposition.”

The Rights group said that “indeed Nigeria is sitting precariously under the time bombs which may explode any time soon except and unless sufficient pressures are brought to bear on President Muhammadu Buhari to behave like a President and allow institutions of government to work in accordance with their constitutional mandates and desist from using these institutions as political attack dogs.”
