Nnamdi Kanu: Nigeria’s democracy under threat, says Primate Ayodele
Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has said Nigeria’s democracy is under threat due to the continued trial, detention of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, by the Federal Government.
Ayodele, in a statement signed by his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, said there is no hope for Nigeria’s democracy and judicial system because both systems have become irredeemably corrupt.
He said there is nothing like democracy in Nigeria anymore, noting that “selection” is what is now obtainable.
He said, “There is nothing like democracy in Nigeria anymore, it is under threat, and it has become a selection. The system to strengthen democracy in Nigeria is corrupt already. We are in a democracy of bondage.”
Ayodele condemned the Nigerian judicial system for not upholding the tenets and principles of the law in discharging its duties.
He said, ‘’Judges don’t also allow justice, they have forgotten that we will all be judged by God at the end. The cases surrounding this election will not come out as expected. The judiciary system is nothing to write home about.’’
Ayodele also condemned the Federal Government’s flagrant disobedience of court judgments while referring to the IPOB leader’s case.
According to him, Kanu had done nothing to necessitate his continued detention even after the court had ordered his release.
‘’Nnamdi Kanu has been in detention all these while despite the fact that the court has approved his release. The government in charge of our democracy didn’t allow him to go. What did he do? Did he kill anyone?
“Or what exactly did he do that can’t allow the rule of law to be effective? There is no judgement in Nigeria, those at the helm of affairs will determine if a judgement will be followed or not, and that’s pointless,” he said
