FG’s disregard for Federal Character cause of divisiveness — HURIWA
Human Rights Writers Association Of Nigeria (HURIWA), has carpeted President Muhammadu Buhari-led adminstration for promoting grave divisions along ethno-religious lines through witch-hunting of Christians in top government positions and for failing abysmally to comply with the Federal Character Principles as enshrined in section 14(3) of the country’s Constitution.
In a statement made available to The Guardian, HURIWA also challenged President Muhammadu Buhari, to tell Nigerians how many of the over 500 armed Fulani herdsmen and bandits arrested, have been successfully prosecuted since the last five years.
The group said the Nigerian police force under the current dispensation, has failed to give proper account of the status of the armed mass murderers they arrested and paraded over the past few years of the current administration. HURIWA said this systematic impunity, encouraged at the highest levels of central government, is what motivates armed fundamentalists to kill Christians at will, believing they are above the law.
