FLASH| Arewa Youths For Progress Accuse Buhari Of Political Witch-hunt

by on December 5, 2015
 

The Arewa Youth for Progress and Development yesterday accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration of going out of its way to witch-hunt political opponents in the polity.

The group’s President, Danjuma Sarki, noted that it was unfortunate that anyone who holds contrary position to that of the ruling All progressive congress (APC) had been subjected to intimidation and harassment with the use of coercive apparatus of power,  Urging the Buhari led administration to retrace its steps in the interest of democratic rule, the group claimed that it is becoming obvious that the nation is gradually drifting towards dictatorship and anarchy.

The Statement reads; “We categorically and unequivocally condemn these acts in their entirety. These have apparently shown that the administration of President Buhari and the ruling party are on a vendetta mission of witch-hunt, molestation, blackmail and persecution of the opposition or any dissenting voice.

“Our organisation has viewed with great concern, the spate of unwarranted witch-hunt, bully and harassment of political opponents under the guise of the fight against corruption by the Buhari administration, using the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) and the Department of State Service (DSS).

It is quite unfortunate, worrisome and sad that since the advent of the current government, its stock-in-trade has been the intimidation and harassment of members of the opposition and anyone who holds contrary opinion to that of the government or the ruling party.

It further noted “The recent invitation and subsequent detention of high Chief Raymond Dokpesi, His Excellency, Alh. Attahiru Bafarawa, former Governor of Sokoto State, Alh. Bashir Yuguda, the former Minister for Finance and others are clear cases of witch-hunt, harassment, intimidation; growing level of impunity; abuse of the rule of law and gross violation of human right which are becoming very alarming and call for great concern by all patriotic, civil society organizations, the media and the international community.”

It said: “We categorically and unequivocally condemn these acts in their entirety, these have apparently shown that the administration of President Buhari and the ruling party are on a vendetta mission of witch-hunt, molestation, blackmail and persecution of the opposition or any dissenting voice.”
