The Commissioner Who Think Himself A God

An idea born out of personal conviction cannot easily be put out no matter the pressure, sabotage or BAN from the government or any group of people.

In any country where democracy is practiced, there’s the RULE OF LAW. What that means is that, no matter how high one may be, he or she, cannot be higher than the law itself. The Commissioner of Police, Mbu J. Mbu, may not have considered, or rather be ignorant of the constitutional rights of the people and the Court of Appeals decision that says ‘one need not get permission to organize a rally’. Mbu’s actions contravened the law as well as that of the authority of Mr President as the Commander in Chief, therefore, contemptous and criminal in nature.

The Bring Back Our Girls campaign since its emergence, has been and remained peaceful, and civil, with the drive to achieve a single issue -the return of the girls, now and alive. The nature of their protest has been the type never experienced in the history Nigeria. A practice where on daily basis, they come out, sit out in the open, make their declarations and resolutions to STAND in solidarity with the abducted Chibok girls of Borno State, until they are brought back by the government whose mandate it is, to protect the lives and properties of the people of Nigeria, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT?

It will be irresponsible and highly unprofessional for the Nigerian Police coming out in the eleventh hour to dissociate himself with Mbu’s DECREE yesterday because the Commissioner of Police don’t have the authority to take a decision of that magnitude when the IG is there. So for the Nigerian police coming out to say that the statement yesterday wasn’t a ban but an “adivory warning”, is childish, irresponsible and unprofessional by all standards of the law.

The Nigerian Police Force made an eleventh hour image saving action on their initial statement on the ban of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign, calling it an “advisory warning” and for the benefit of the protesters. For those of you who never got the chance to see the initial ban charge by the Commissioner of Police, Mbu Joseph Mbu, here are some lines:

“As the FCT police boss, I cannot fold my hands and watch this lawlessness” -Mbu

“People have been protesting over a month now…it is the issue of terrorism, it is not solved in one day. Then, when you continue to do it persistently, it becomes  nuisance to the government…” -Mbu

They keep asking me what we want but in essence, what we don’t want, is to have Nigerian lives been wasted on daily basis, to have a government that trades on impunity and corruption. what we dont want, is to have incompetent, lying leaders and visionless politicians. What we want, is to take our country back, to right the wrongs and bring back Nigeria to its shinning days of glory.

For years we’ve all been speaking within the circumference of our rooms, our offices. If we don’t walk to make our country better, we will?
