MAMA PEACE THE NEXT TARGET TO BE SHATTERED.
The ongoing indictment of #Patience #Jonathan, former first lady of #Nigeria, over N2 Billion found in her account is indeed preposterous and a clear indication of President Muhammadu Buhari's administration led intimidation and witch-hunting campaign against the opposition under the guise of their purported fight against corruption.
As a matter of fact, she was the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and as such, must have received gifts from people of good will. But this question remains unsettling- "when has receiving gifts become a crime in the #Nigerian constitution?" If that is the case, what measures has the government taken concerning the looting linked to Governor Rochas Okorocha of #Imo #State or that of Bola #Tinubu in whose house bullion vans filled with money were found?
Even #President #Buhari is not left out as no charges were laid against him over the two armoured vehicles given to him by the former National Security Adviser, #Dasuki, although he was not entitled to such.
Is this not a confirmation of the public view that once you are in or a new convert of the All Progressives Congress you automatically become purged of your "sins"- but if not your "sins" will definitely find you out? Is that not the height of hypocrisy and double standard? Is this not an act of defamation to the democracy they profess to champion?
Well-meaning #Nigerians are hereby encouraged to speak against this arsenal of intimidation wielded by President Buhari and his cohorts who are threatening our democracy and ripping us of our human rights.
More so, the #Nigerian #Judiciary, being the last hope of every citizen should not allow for the debasement of its integrity by lowering its reputation to becoming a tool in the hands of the executive for the propagation of its evil, partial and unconstitutional orchestrations.
