  House of Representatives

The House of Representatives on Thursday permitted the military to go ahead with the Operation Positive Identification exercise in the country.

The Reps agreed that the Army should regularly brief the Committee on Army led by Mr Abdurazak Namdas, for proper assessment of the exercise
In general, the House resolved, “That the Army can continue with the OPI but in collaboration with other relevant security agencies such as the Nigeria Immigration Service and the Nigeria Police Force, who should take the lead in the identification process.

“That a joint intelligence and monitoring team should be set up by the agencies involved in order to checkmate possible abuse of the exercise, such as extortion and assault on the people.

“That the Army should regularly brief the Committee on Army for proper assessment of the exercise.

“That the Nigerian Army should disengage from the areas they have successfully completed operations and allow the Police to consolidate on the gains.

“That serious and urgent attention should be given to the police in the area of training and retraining so as to equip them to curtail future insurrection or violence that may occur.”

This is very significant and must be LOGGED here.

NIGERIA LOG exists exactly to record things like these -things that we must point to as KEY events in our history.

How does a supposed civilian house of reps approve that the military should be doing the most basic of police work in peace time?

A lot of Nigerians believe that this effectively marks the death of Nigeria's hard-won democracy.
Some Nigerians believe (I read their comments on newspaper sites, and I agree) that this is just the beginning of a process, the end of which cannot be good, because it was NOT approved by the ordinary Nigerians.

Politicians have been coerced (they are very corrupt and lack moral compass totally, so are very malleable ) to support something directly opposite of the Nigerian people's democratic and liberty aspirations.

It may even be ethnically or religiously motivated (some allege Rugalisation and forced islamization as the ultimate goal) and it would be naive to dismiss such fears outright.

Remember that the army denied this earlier ... well, here we are.

Personally, this is not right!... The police should be at the forefront of this ID operation. The army should stick to their primary role which is defending the territory of the country.
