Power To Nigerian People Through Impeachment & Recall

A new wind of improve is on the land known as Nigeria, that is for confident-a wind that provides a new dawn in Nigeria! Some Nigerians see it as a very good wind other individuals see it as a lousy wind. And, of course, there are the in-betweens of various levels ranging from individuals who do not see the wind as both excellent or negative down to people who never even realize what the heck the wind is all about. It all came with the landmark presidential election of 2015, when, for the initially time in the background of Nigeria, an incumbent president was stopped from re-election. Retired Common Muhammadu Buhari executed this feat beating President Goodluck Jonathan at the poll with his election marketing campaign concept of adjust-change from what he summed up as the protracted misrule of the People’s Democratic Celebration (PDP).

Buhari’s victory implies that the people of Nigeria did in fact want a adjust of federal government a modify from PDP! At the threat of sounding like a parrot, I must say, as I did in my earlier commentaries, that my curiosity in, and support to President Buhari is on the war against corruption. I do not even examine any other problem, or any faults that may perhaps be attributed to Mr. President. I have always mentioned my motives-Mr. Corruption is the bane of Nigeria, and I feel that Mr. President has the resolve and the character to combat Mr. Corruption! It is happening currently the transform is here in fact! Buhari Fever is on, and the hitherto untouchables in Nigeria are certainly catching the chilly!! Heads are rolling in the best spots!!!

And, of program, Buharri Fever is also making all the companies and establishments to sit up and consider to do the suitable factor. A fantastic illustration is incredibly crystal clear to see that as before long as Buhari turned president, the hitherto epileptic electrical energy supply to the citizenry instantly improved appreciably devoid of any boost in electric power technology. Why? Buhari Fever which is why! Performance amongst electric power workers immediately jumped up, with the workers knowing that hitherto commonplace laxity, functions of corruption and sabotage under Buhari catch the attention of swift penalty. Also, some of Nigeria’s stolen resources instantly produced legs and walked back again into the treasury as soon as Buhari was announced the winner of the 2015 election, even just before he climbed the seat. Why? For the reason that the accused folks who had correctly, arrogantly challenged the accusations in Jonathan’s authorities, caught the Buhari Fever that’s why! Also, judges are now careful about granting frivolous courtroom injunctions that hitherto stalled the demo of large corrupt politicians and leaders. Why? Buhari Fever, that is why! Quite a few alleged looters abused this legal mumbo jumbo loophole referred to as injunction in President Jonathan’s governing administration. They did not trouble to try out protect the allegations in court docket they merely purchased by themselves some court injunctions to evade trial. Not any for a longer time not with Buhari Fever in the air. Hitherto untouchable citizens are dealing with demo for alleged looting-all the way to the so-called amount three citizen-just as the rest of Nigerians would if accused of stealing a mere goat. I only pray that the fever lasts!

On that take note, let us speak about us-recognized in our structure as We The People of Nigeria-and our purpose in the rebirth of the country. According to our constitution, the electricity of the nation belongs to us. The unhappy point is that a excellent number of us are not enlightened to know precisely what that energy is, and how to use it. So, this treatise is to preach-particularly to the youths-the gospel of right exploitation of our ability by way of Buhari Fever. We cannot just sit back again and complain about what Buhari is executing incorrect in the ongoing corruption war. The president is only human, just like the rest of us. So, he will make errors and poor judgments from time to time just like each individual solitary 1 of the relaxation of us. For this reason, he need to encounter criticism consistently, just like anyone that has ever sat, and anybody that will ever sit in that seat. But permit our criticisms be constructive and honest, aimed to add to the revolution, and not to sabotage it-that’s my dependable argument! Let us constructively critique Mr. President not maliciously criticize him for political expediency.

We are all anticipated to be active in the corruption war-in numerous methods. Buhari Fever can only do so a lot in correcting the a lot of anomalies in our culture We The Men and women of Nigeria have to get energetic and essential in on the advantages of the fever to transform matters all-around for much better. It is easier now for us to check out the excesses of our leaders as stipulated in our constitution. Buhari’s obvious zero-nepotism corruption war has begun to redefine the attitudes of Nigerians in general public positions, and it is no more time business enterprise as usual for those that are seeking in effectiveness and character. I have already mentioned one particular superior illustration-Buhari Fever has cautioned our judges to be mindful about granting frivolous injunctions to suspects to evade demo. No question, in spite of high-powered intrigues, our “selection 3 gentleman,” the Senate President, could not safe an injunction now while numerous lesser “huge fishes” could receive it at the fall of a hat in the course of Jonathan’s presidency.

However, no subject how offended we are at lousy leaders, our structure has stipulations on how to tackle our grievances just about anything exterior people stipulations is unlawful. For instance, stoning Senator Saraki on a prayer floor on a Sallah Day as reported in the information very last September was barbaric and unconstitutional in truth, it was a criminal offense against the senator. The law of the land does not make it possible for anybody to toss stones at anyone, for any explanation in any way. We do have respectable ways of venting our anger about our erring leaders as contained in our constitution. And the reputable approaches do not stop at just permitting leaders know that we are indignant they ensure adjustments. The idea is-Don’t Get Mad Get Even.

My campaign is to place the youths of Nigeria on the appropriate (respectable) path to get even with our leaders. I start listed here with two devices of ‘war’-Remember of erring lawmakers, and Impeachment of erring governors and presidents. The 1st and previous time I at any time listened to of the Recall instrument outlined in Nigeria was by 1 obnoxiously impudent chief of the corrupt cabal of the region through President Jonathan’s authorities, who in fact considered that he experienced the correct to individually recall any federal lawmaker that disobeyed his command. He essentially declared this on countrywide Tv set, and seemed hell-bent to basically attempt to have out the risk, until finally a several brave lawyers described it to him that he did not have these kinds of energy that the power belongs to the people today! Obviously, his ignorance was a reflection of the complete Nigerian modern society the masses have no iota of plan what this is all about, because the game of democracy is new to them!

The 2nd instrument, Impeachment-the course of action to unseat an erring governor or our president-is far more widespread to Nigerians, but in a quite, pretty bastardized type. A very good mix of the correct varieties of the Remember and Impeachment instruments as stipulated in our constitution can go a lengthy way in examining the entrenched attitude of impunity amongst our lawmakers, governors, and presidents.

Our key problem, seriously, are the lawmakers, and I will explain to you why. If we can regulate our lawmakers, then we can regulate the governors and the presidents by means of the lawmakers. Next, the lawmakers are supposed to consider orders from us due to the fact they are representing us. Really, they should really first get our viewpoints ahead of they vote on any big challenge. We voted them into the parliament to stand for us since all 170 million of us are not able to cram into a person room to deliberate on the welfare of the nation. The authors of our constitution did know all this, so they did supply for us how to kick the lawmakers out of business office if they refuse to obey our needs/thoughts. The authors realized that our lawmakers are human, and predicted that some of them are sure to err from time to time. The authors also predicted the fact that electricity-the quest for it, and the intoxication of it when 1 has it-can corrupt human beings really very easily. So, figuring out all these, the authors of our constitution, just like their counterparts in other democracies, furnished the detail called Remember, to test the expected excesses of our legislators, equally at the condition and federal stages.

Alternatively than throw stones at Senator Saraki, the indignant mob that besieged the prayer ground on a Sallah Working day really should vent their anger by means of the instrument of Recall enshrined in our structure. I want to toss it as an open up challenge to our youths to make awareness and enlightenment campaigns on these two and other instruments to implement superior governance in Nigeria as a result of their social media. And the civil liberty corporations, far too let us all be part of palms to support a marketing campaign to recall lawmakers that are not symbolizing us well in our parliaments. This will curtail some of their show of impunity in their utterances and behaviors.

Now, as quickly as we can control our lawmakers, then we can usually legitimately drive them to impeach any governor or president that we overwhelmingly want out of office. If they disobey, we remember them or if it is way too late in their tenure for recall, then we must ensure that we vote them out in the subsequent election. This way we shall conquer the revenue-bag syndrome, which has hitherto skip-aligned the allegiance of our representatives in the parliaments from us to our erring governors and presidents. We shall ensure that our reps vote on impeachments dependent on fact and very good conscience for us, and no more time for baggage of income. Think it or not, a senator acquaintance of mine truly stated to me at the time in the course of President Obasanjo’s tenure-“Harry, when we will need funds we simply fake to want to impeach Mr. President, he provides us a handful of hundreds of millions, and the circumstance dies off.” His sorry excuse when I berated him for corruption was that he had to be part of the relaxation, due to the fact he could not conquer them!… I ain’t Bullshitting!
