“The Folks’s Debacle” – BarristerNG.com
Justice Onnoghen clocked seventy some days again. Do you bear in mind him? He was the Chief Justice of Nigeria. He would have honourably bowed out from the exalted Bench in the present day, sadly, this was to not be. Under is a bit I put collectively some two years in the past when the brouhaha and nationwide shame transpired proper after the 2019 Basic elections. Ititled it:”The Peoples’ Debacle”:
“I might have titled this ” The PDP’s debacle”, or “The PDP’s Dilemma”, however I really feel its Nigerians’ downside. In any case, so I heard the PDP is making ready to go to courtroom following their loss on the just lately concluded polls. I may even hear their supporters cheering them on. They really feel cheated, shortchanged, they usually should get justice. Sure justice! So that they head to courtroom which is the final hope of the widespread man. Wait, did I say “hope of the widespread man”? Come o, is it the identical courtroom which had its head unceremoniously faraway from workplace and prevented from inaugurating the assorted Election Petition Tribunals that had been to preside over election petitions. Wait once more, what did Nigerians, and even the PDP, which now search justice do? Oh sure, I bear in mind,
it declared a two day halt on their nationwide campaigns to “protest” the injustice, however continued thereafter. They continued I’m certain, hoping to win on the sphere. Now they misplaced and are again to face the results of not preventing the injustice by way of after they must have. They’re again to face the judiciary they left battered, crying to it for assist, crying to it for justice.
The folks too are indignant and disgruntled in regards to the conduct and end result of the elections. Nicely, to them, their collective will has been raped. They need justice. However wait, what justice? The place will you discover it? When everybody continued with their enterprise when the Chief Justice was purportedly suspended. It was none of their concern. “Na dem dem affair. Let’s go away the struggle to attorneys”. Some even laughed as they folded their arms to benefit from the struggle. Now they need justice. They need their “will” restored. And I ask, How na? In any case, want you all good luck.
You see, all of us as Nigerians deserve what we get. Let me quote a poem which aptly captures the Nigerian state. This was written in regards to the cowardice of the German intellectuals following the Nazis’ rise to energy and subsequent incremental purging of their chosen targets, group after group:
First they got here for the socialists, and I didn’t communicate out—
As a result of I used to be not a socialist.
Then they got here for the commerce unionists, and I didn’t communicate out—
As a result of I used to be not a commerce unionist.
Then they got here for the Jews, and I didn’t communicate out—
As a result of I used to be not a Jew.
Then they got here for me— and there was nobody left to talk for me.
Now individuals are greater than ever occupied with who governs them, however will not be occupied with preventing to make it proper. Following the result of those elections, they now need the worldwide group to come back to their help. However you all maintained your peace when the image of justice was raped and the rapers acquired away with it…with all they did.
The so-called activists troop to international embassies protesting injustice anticipating assist therefrom. No, assist can solely come from you, you and also you alone. Solely the residents could make it proper. Nobody, no establishment, nor international nation will repair it for you.
What’s my very own sef, let me go and face my enterprise as everybody else, in spite of everything, my nation women and men will quickly neglect all these and transfer on as they at all times do.
Ehn, my Lord, standing earlier than you is P.O Adewumi, Counsel showing for the…”
