Article: Paradox Of A Corrupt Opposition Party In Power

By SKC Ogbonnia

The All Peoples Congress (APC) gained the Nigerian presidency on an enchanting mantra of change, particularly change from the tide of an endemic corruption that characterized the 16-year reign of the People Democratic Party (PDP). Unfortunately, however, over one and half years after it lost power, virtually all structures of government have remained in the firm grip of the PDP, the now opposition party. Not surprisingly, the hope for the much-anticipated change is gradually becoming a pipe dream.

Lai Mohammed 

The leaderships of International Society for Civil Liberties & the Rule of Law (Intersociety) and the Southeast Based Coalition of Human Rights Organizations (SBCHROs) are deeply concerned over the un-repentant and remorseless bad conducts of some senior public office holders under the present Buhari Administration in Nigeria. Of particular concerns are highly despicable and condemnable dispositions of the Nigerian Army headed by Lt Gen Turkur Yusuf Buratai and his sub commanders as well as the image and public information handlers of the present central Government of Nigeria including the Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed and the Presidential Spokespersons.

News Release: COL. Aminu Iliyasu And His Lies Concerning The Military Massacre Of Biafrans In Port Harcourt On 20th January, 2017

The murderous Nigerian Army have been caught in another web of lies, this time from one Colonel Aminu Iliyasu described as the Deputy Director of Army Public Relations of 6 Division of the Nigerian Army based in Igweocha (Port Harcourt). A further check on this so-called Colonel revealed that he was promoted to his current rank based on ethnic quota system because he was not qualified for such promotion if properly evaluated by merit as with most uneducated Hausa-Fulani officers of the Nigerian Army. The now customary kill-and-deny tactics of the Nigerian Army is once again at play. This is not the first, neither is it going to be the last time that the blood-thirsty state-owned terror group known as the Nigerian Army will commit mass murder and shamelessly come out to deny it. The list is endless, from IPOB massacre in Onitsha, Aba, Igweocha, Nkpor, Asaba, Shiite massacres in Kaduna and Kano among others. International human rights groups have consistently labeled the Nigerian Army as perennial liars incapable of ever telling the truth when it comes to their culpability in the mass execution of unarmed civilians.
