SOWORE AND THE DIVIDED CITIZENRY

Spread the love

You will recall that shortly after the revolution now movement began, I wrote a post to voice my indifference to it.  My lack of care steamed from my believe that the campaign was not clearly thought out and well defined. In fact, I had quite a lengthy argument with some people I revere on the platform over my stance. Did I not see the revolution as long overdue and largely about the suffering masses? some queried. It wasn’t that I didn’t think change was needed or that it was long overdue. I just felt back then, and rightly so, that the drivers of the movement might have given the government a pretext to suppress it by way the hashtag was couched. Why am I saying this? It has become imperative for me to address some issues surrounding the continued detention of Sowore for personal reasons.

First of all, personal belief, perceptions and opinions are exclusive rights and should be treated as such. Therefore, It is within your right to be oppose to Sowore and his revolution now movement. In fact, you might hate his gut. Or maybe  even his face. You can do all these. After all,  humans are sadly capable  of anything including both hate and love. But his continued detention is a slap on our laws and the very tenets upon which our  democracy is built. You can pretend to be fine by it especially if you belong in the category who see his continued incarceration as keeping trouble off the political street of the southwest, those nursing a southwest presidency come 2023 and sees his noise as capable of putting spanner in the works. Or if you currently benefit from this  comedy of error we call government. But  how you failed to see the hydra-headed monster  the disregard for rule of law would breed is beyond me. Once the rule of law is subject to the whims and Caprice of the president and all else does not matter unless the president says so,tyranny and authoritarianism is what would emerge.

 If released, he would escape like Kanu they argued, these lots who have lost their moral authority on the alter of Buharism- a psychological disease capable of ridding one of his sense of right and wrong, blurring the lines between appropriateness and inappropriateness   forget or didn’t know, I should say, that it’s not the place of the Dogs of Napoleon to arrogate to themselves the powers of the court. One is tempted to ask; did the DSS not  contest  the bail  application? Did they not canvass all their points? If the court in her wisdom granted him bail, does it not mean that the court as exercise it powers within the ambit of the enabling laws? “An order of Court must be obeyed even if such an order is perverse, until such a time that the order is set aside by a competent court … a flagrant flouting of an order of the court by the executive is an invitation to anarchy…Per Ubaezeonu, JCA(as he then was) in Nigerian Army v. Mowarin(1992) 4 NWLR (Pt. 235), p. 345” Besides, the said order granting Sowore bail is competent. If they felt hard done by it, an appeal it possible but not without first obeying the order granting him bail( see the case of Nigerian Army v Mowarin supra)  They daily  Spit on our laws and clothe our judges in borrowed robes of ridicule and powerlessness. With glee, gusto and reckless abandon they continue to bulldoze the remaining institutions left standing. Our court wallows daily and sighs under the heavy weight of oppression; for the power of the court lies in the obedience of her orders without which she is reduced to mere  village gatherings of elders with no force of law.

For the record, Sowore  is a political prisoner. The treason charge is laughable.And that is probably why the court granted him bail . But his continued detention can only have reverse effect on the polity. His relevance would continue to soar like a yeast infested flour as long as he remains in the gaol, more and more citizens would be drawn invariably to the need to ask for a change in status quo however snailishly while  his gaoler’s records as a violator of human rights and champion of repression would continue to dwarf all the very little social gains he thought to have garnered.  As for the indifferent folks whose indifference is propelled by the death of hope in the Nigerian project, I dare say that as long as you still exist within the confines of this  geographical contraption, your indifference is no immunity. Nigeria as become an endless comedy of errors  with sadly not  laughter to go round. The ones having there share of laughter are oblivious of their turn in the gaoler’s mess. They forget that their Napoleon was Snowballs buddies until the former got tired of the latter and booted him out with his dogs. Ibiri Jones is out. Sowore would come out stronger. What suffers ultimately is our democracy which is continually being rendered pretentious

  6. Great post here. One thing I’d like to say is that often most professional areas consider the Bachelor’s Degree like thejust like the entry level standard for an online diploma. Although Associate Certifications are a great way to get started, completing ones Bachelors starts up many opportunities to various careers, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs available by institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions give Online types of their diplomas but usually for a significantly higher payment than the companies that specialize in online degree programs.
