NIGERIA DEMOCRACY DENIED OUR SELF EXPRESSION AND PREFER US TO DIE

Nigeria Democracy Denied Our Self Expression And Prefer Us To Die

Written By Paul Tosin ©

Democracy in Nigeria is built on the respect for Deprivation of Human Rights and Social Injustice.

Human rights are better described than it is undefined.
The concept of human rights is the modern articulation of what traditionally is known as natural rights but merely practice so different than the former!

Democracy is meant to protect human rights and social justice, and where such protection is lacking the struggle for their actualization continues, as in the case of Nigeria.

Without over labouring the obvious fact of slave trade and colonization as climaxing the disrespect of human dignity and rights, the struggle for human rights in Nigeria is as old as the country itself.

Independence from colonialism was fought and won in 1960 from the British colonialists, but as they were leaving they planted a perennial tree of corruption that seems to perpetuate denial of human rights in Nigeria.

Chinua Achebe aptly presents the fact of how the British rigged the very first election in Nigeria to favour their northern favorites.

The aggravation of the struggle for self-determination and respect of human rights against unjust oppressions in Nigeria led to the thirty months civil war in the country,
which claimed more than one million lives in what is variously described as a genocide against the Igbo of Nigeria.

The Nigerian efforts at state survival, purported democracy and respect of human rights so far are worse than the wasted efforts of drunken paddlers who tied their canoe to a tree at the bank of the river before drinking excessively and forgot to untie it after getting intoxicated and resumed paddling.




The leaders of the country actually know the structural and constitutional deformities that keep it at a standstill but may be, deceitfully decided to kept mute.

Democracy is nowhere to be found in the country and human rights and social justice are merely being made mockery of.

Perhaps one of the first things to be done is to show that Nigeria and indeed all Africa, is ready for statehood and democracy is to highlight the right to self determination through series of referendum to know if the boundaries given to them by colonialists are to their (African) advantage or to the maximization of colonial interests and the sustenance of neo colonization into endless years of freedom as independent African states.
