Northern groups reject June 12 as Democracy Day

A Coalition of Northern Groups has rejected June 12, as Democracy Day, saying, it was ridiculous for the Federal Government to be pretending to celebrate a certain Democracy Day, while in the actual sense, the nation is supposed to be observing days of mourning.

A statement entitled, “On the killings in the Northern Nigeria,” signed by the group’s spokesman, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, noted that the unnecessary change of date for the celebration of what is obviously not working from October 1 to June 12, with the sole aim of pacifying and pleasing the interest of a certain section and privileged individuals is unrealistic and therefore condemnable.

“We challenge the moral credentials of the current administration to call for the celebration of a Democracy Day, the essence of which it had destroyed with an ill-advised shift from the traditional May 29 date to June 12,” the statement emphasised.

The group bemoaned the collapse of security in the North, stressing that, “ what we see happening by the minute is deterioration in all aspects of social, security and political issues that are not being decisively addressed by the government. “The cumulative effect of the unfolding scenario sadly points to a calculated design to continuously weaken the region politically and pauperize it economically. In specific terms, the CNG has found that the reality on the ground now is one of pervasive fear and uncertainty all over the North; everybody is feeling unsafe, uncertain and traumatic.

“With the inception of the current dispensation in the last five years, Nigeria, in particular the North, has had the worst set of incompetent, ineffective, unfocused and generally unwilling leaders manning all the arms and levels of governance.”

From the map, if Oyo, Osun, Ekiti and Edo are in Southern Nigeria, why then is Benue and Kogi classified as Northern Nigeria?
Keep in mind that neither Kogi nor Benue is dominated by any of Nigeria's three major ethnic groups (Hausa, Igbo or Yoruba). Which means that both states can actually be in the geopolitical south. Why are they then in the North?

It should be that all these referenced states be either in the North or in the South - at least officially geographically speaking.

But this is Nigeria where there is a "south south" -the only one in the entire universe.

Integrity cannot be built in the basis of lies and deceit.

So whenever "Nigeria's territorial integrity" is being discussed, one starts to wonder.
It is practically impossible to build a territorial integrity on the basis of myths.

As for the substance of the news, it validates the foregoing thought that Nigeria is not union of consensus.
No union of consensus is possible without honesty.
And if it is not a union built on consensus, it must be a union built on coercion.

History is usually not kind to unions of coercion.
