Who Took The Decision To Withdraw A Sitting Governor’s Security Aides Few Days Before Election?

Gov. Willie Obiano & President Buhari.
Let me start this small piece by first, appreciating God for giving Nigeria and Nigerians a man like President Muhammadu Buhari, who came at a time like this, when the political system in Nigeria needed a total revamp in all spectrum, for with his kind and the mindset he has about leadership and positions of authority, we are going far as a country, for with him, it can never be business as usual, either amongst his political associates, or the economy in general. He is a man who believes in doing unto others, same as he would want them do to him and this is where he has gotten right politically.

Worried I am, that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is showing signs that she is not different from the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, who during the elections that brought the national disgrace of a governor in Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose in 2014, used the Nigerian Police, the Army and other security agencies of government against the opposition, making it impossible for the then governor, Kayode Fayemi to move around after his security aides were withdrawn on the orders of the then president, Goodluck Jonathan.

Fast-forward to 2017 and in Anambra State, save for the intervention of the president, Muhammadu Buhari, the APC led Police force had ordered the withdrawal of the security aides of the governor and candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Gov. Willie Obiano, same as it was done to Kayode Fayemi of the APC in 2014 in Ekiti State and one begins to wonder when these politicians would learn from history?

Who gave the orders that had the aides of a sitting governor withdrawn? Would same security aides have been withdrawn if the governor were to be of the APC? So, what is the difference between the APC now and the PDP then, if they do the same thing they preached against when the ball was on their side?

Why do we like setting bad records for the youths of the country to follow? Who will withdraw the aides of the president when his time comes or, are they not enjoying same constitutional covering?

It’s a shame that the APC is not showing any sign of being different from the PDP in anyway possible and for the president to have ordered the reinstatement of the security personnel of the governor of Anambra State, shows that he was not consulted.

Politicians simply hijacked the system and took the decision to have the governor stripped naked before the election date.
