Okwe Obi, Abuja

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) against enthroning dictatorship in the Ninth Senate.

In a statement, yesterday, its National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, and Director, National Media Affairs, Zainab Yusuf, HURIWA claimed the group generated “high net intelligence from elected legislators, suggesting  a pre-determined plot to ensure the inauguration of rubber-stamp members that would be led by mostly individuals with past misdeeds; which might be used as instruments of blackmail by heads of security forces to be loyal to the president.”

HURIWA added that “the immediate consequences of having rubber-stamp and non-vibrant legislative arm of government, at the national level is that dictatorship and tyranny would become full blown; even as other fundamental freedoms enshrined in the Constitution would be inevitably imperiled.”
