HURIWA Slams Buhari On Democracy Day, Says There Is Nothing To Celebrate
Human Rights group has on Sunday, said there is nothing to celebrate under the government of President, Muhammadu Buhari.
In a statement released by Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), the group reacted to the declaration of a public holiday on June 13 by the Federal Government to celebrate Democracy Day, pointing out the many inadequacies and economy challenges people are going through in the country.
The group said Nigerians have nothing to celebrate with 1$ which now exchanges for N600 at the parallel market, with 28 Nigerians killed daily by ferocious bandits, with 23 million unemployed people, with diesel price per litre at over N500, staggering petrol price reaching N200 per litre, and soaring cooking gas at over 300 percent, among others.
It went further in a statement released by its National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko that the report card of Buhari in the last one year was nothing to write home about.
HURIWA said the actions, inactions and socio-economic realities of the Buhari regime in the last one year and in the last seven years do not represent democratic values and dividends.
The present administration had in 2018 declared the 12th of June every year as Democracy Day, in honour of the late presumed winner of the annulled June 12, 1993 election, Moshood Abiola.
