Buhari's "Emergency Power" Quest; Tyranny + Absolutism Not A Democratic Tenet. by EteEdoho: 9:36am On Aug 22, 2016
I saw a topic earlier today on Nairaland,as regards Buhari's quest for what i would term an Absolute power,which was masked as a recommendation of his economic team led by VP osibanjo,to rescue Nigeria from recession.

First and fore-most,lets look at the recession and what caused it,before delving into the main aim of this article.

President Buhari rode on the good will of Nigerians who said they were dissenchanted by the immediate past administration,to win election,and sane minds would av' thought he would continue in such good will,to make the country better,but no,the old haggard tyrant delved into divisive politics of 97% and 5%,as if that wasn't enough,he took almost 3months to appoint ministers who he had earlier tagged "noise makers". It takes just a fool to do that. 3months alone is enough to set the tune for growth or stiffling of an economy,as every financial year is graded into 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th quarters,with each quarter being comprised of 3months,and recession means two consecutive negative quarter growth in a year. It therefore means,between the time taken to appoint ministers,which includes economic team,and them settling down to draft their policies and start its implementations,you av' already set the tune for bad economy,as both local and foreign investors would av' pushed the pannick button. Need i remind any one how many times the stock Market crashed in the last 15months?. In other words,an economic guru can sit at the comfort of his house,and tell where Buhari led Nigeria economy will land.
Yes,late 2014,and early 2015,oil depend nations economy were on red button,because of plummeting crude price at the int'l energy market,and our then finance minister warned about it,and also mulled some recommendations,one of which is to save,Amaechi and Fashola who are now tagged 'super ministers' without nothing to show for it,led the 'share the money' campaign against the her,and the money was shared,and Govs.stole it all. One would av' thought Buhari will move into action immediately,as well as appointing economy gurus,as signs abound that the economy was on red alert,but no,he went into honey moon according to APC,while our economy burns. You don't expect the 5% citizens,to support a government that profiled and stereotyped them,its normal. And hence,the angry ones among 5% said 'our resources,which is Nigeria's chief forex earner and economic main-stay,will be made irrelevant to you,as you av' made us irrelevant to your government'. Then,the clueless and ill-learned Kemi ,and her CBN friend ended the game with their yeye policies that sent both local and foreign investors scampering for safety. All these brougth us to where we are now.
Ministerial appointment;
Buhari left Nigerians mouth agap,when he appointed non compose mentis as ministers. Buhari was blackmailed by Tinubu into appointing naïve and classless Kemi Adeosu,as finance minister,as well as making a confused lawyer Osibanjo,the leader of his economic team. How can a lawyer be the head of economic team?.
Tinubu the proponent of the emergency power,more especially the auctioning of Nigerian assets,as they did after the civil war; It's a known fact that Osibanjo is Tinubu's house boy. Tinubu via Osibanjo is proposing to offset Nigerian assets,which he will under price and hoodwink the government into selling them to hin,as a condition for him to roll out his media machinery and financial war chest once again,as well as prodding his minions in southwest,for Buhari re-election come 2019,haven failed to secured any oil bloc as yet,due to the activities of NDA. This is same thing he did with Lagos,today,greater percentage of both liquid and capital assets of Lagos state,is under him. Buhari,a despot,would clutch on anything to remain in power,and hence,he is expected to give in to this evil demand.
Buhari is a tyrant that shouldn't be allow to control absolute power,whether temporal or permanent. He had often times shown that even as a democratic president,his years of military mentality is still speaking. He had made mess of our judiciary system,and had shown often times that he isn't willing to obey court pronounciations.
Buhari will give in to Tinubu's demand via his proxy Osibanjo,because he would want to retain power come 2019,and he himself loves absolutism of power. If at all he was allowed to excercise such power even for six months,he would seek enlogation. Nigerians and the duo of red and green,must resist Tinubuism,and Buhari's quest for absolute power,a pseudo return to military ditactorship. They even want a clause of suspending contract/assets bidding and acquisition processes,which was provided for,in both BPP and BPE laws,so as to av' unhindered access to acquire our assets,and bambozzle our common wealth. Say NO to thieves in the corridor of power. Kemi should as finance minister,make our economy work,or resign.

Less than 2months after he was sworn in, there were calls from several notable northern APC politicians calling for the suspension of the constitution in order for Buhari to do his magic.



[size=18pt]APC chieftain calls for suspension of the constitution to enable Buahri Perform[/size]

The former Minister of Police Affairs, Dr Ibrahim Yakubu Lame has advocated for the establishment of emergency powers to the President instead of following the long process that will deter the speed action when necessary. The former Minister made the remark while fielding questions yesterday from newsmen in Bauchi where he tasked Nigerians to see the emergence of President Muhammad Buhari on the leadership of the country as necessary condition for peace, development and credible change in the polity. According to him, the leadership of President Muhammad Buhari under the All Progressives Congress (APC) in which change was yearned for by Nigerians is geared to remove institutional decay, corruption and incompetence in the system that has affected so many sectors in the country, urging President Buhari to re-establish capacity, competence and integrity in national leadership at all levels including the private sector and the public sector. He advocated for the bestowment of emergency powers on President Muhammad Buhari that will not destroy democracy but make the system to effectively function, work and arrest the fundamental issue of decay in the society, saying that democracy is about the welfare, security and safety of the people, so there is need to take steps to ensure that Buhari succeeds without compromising the concept of representation. The APC gubernatorial aspirant in Bauchi state during the last elections noted that noted that Nigerians now have a leader who demonstrated the desire and capacity to change; hence an environment must be created for him to achieve that change. “We can do that for certain number of years, say in the next four years let’s do away with certain obstacles that will stop Buhari from functioning. After that, if it is not possible we add another four years, eight years in a life of a nation is not much to re-establish and re-position it is just doing what is expected. So if there are issues within the Constitution that are abused or being manipulated to stop Buhari from succeeding, we must remove or set them aside for now without compromising the fundamental position of the constitution”, he added. The one time education commissioner in the state stressed the need for the legal system, Law and Constitution be respected as they are all meant to provide for the security of lives of Nigerians, their properties and future, adding that societies always look at their peculiar situations and do things that will help them, recalling that when late President ‘Yar-Adua was sick, the same Nigerians called for doctrine of necessity. “Such call was never in our Constitution but we invoked the issue of doctrine of necessity and then Goodluck Jonathan was made to act to avoid possible collapse of the system, so I believe we need to look at that. Though the situation has not reached that position but there are signs, like the leadership crisis in the National Assembly which is uncalled for,” he added. He said that it was important to build and fix the country by removing leakages which President Buhari has started doing, especially by making public institutions work, allow rule of law to prevail, avoid wastage, and establish transparency and good governance. -

And we also heard from that charlatan , Falana who declared that a sitting Governor can be arraigned before a military Tribunal and also subject to criminal prosecution while in office inspite of immunity clause.

What I have to say is that we must resist this tyrant in Aso Rock because if we give him the slightest chance he will steal our land and hand it over to his Fulani kinsmen, grant boko haram paid amnesty, declare NEDC using oil proceeds from the south to rehabilitate his bokos in the guise of reconstructing the ravaged NE.


These are just a few.


But the greatest danger lies ahead , for this tyrant and his legion of shameless supporters can easily force us to accept Buhari as life president in the nearest future.

Op I think you don't understand what the president is seeking for.He is only seeking a temporary suspension of all the bureaucratic processes that is slowing down the govts financial interventions in the revamping our economy. I guess you didn't read the part where states will now require 10% instead of 40% in the UBE law.

The bureaucratic processes are there to ensure accountability and transperancy.


It is a check and balance mechanism put in place to ensure that corrupt practices are checked.

If not for the very same Senate, would we have known that Buhari padded the budget?

Like I argued in the other thread:

This is the best economic way to go in this present situation we ve found ourselves. ... .. .. SPEND YOUR WAY OUT OF RECESSION cos their is little or nothing monetary policy by extension CBN can do for us now. We need to reverse the trend through fiscal policy stimulus {Keynesian Economics} which involves massive government expenditure and interventions in the critical sectors of the economy so as to stimulate Aggregate Demand and Lubricate the economy. Hence every bureaucratic bottleneck should be removed.

Kwara Rat, I guess your moniker is a reflection of your brain.

Just to attempt to help your obvious idiocy, be reminded that Nigeria is in dire situation needing urgent interventions and that is exactly what the president is trying to do.

What's the problems with you unpatriotic wailing zombies? If the president doesn't come up with ideas as this, you tag him Bab Go Slow; you call him names and say he lacks the ability to turn things around. And now that he's trying to fix our problems with the type of urgency required, you're talking poo here.

I give it to the president's democratic qualities for even seeking NASS approval and support. The Ineffectual Buffoon will have broken all known laws and do as he thought right or wrong without any recourse to NASS and the constitution. After all, the reps/senators are on the same page as him on corruption and they won't even question him about it.

Buhari need absolute power to perform....in 21century
His economic team are pushing and selling the idea..
Some are already buying into it..
Why is it that those buying into it never came up with the idea..till it came from the government and automatically it becomes the best?
Can't they see the direction of the government even when they are been awaking to the fact?
Why did it take the government so long to come up with this idea?
Can't we see the effect of selling our assets to private individuals?
Shebi obj did it..thank God for yaradua..
I don't think we need this now..or we all might just invite the military to take over..
Buhari I know can handle absolute power in this present nigeria..or we all will be on a long long thing..

Mr. Man,shove whatever theory you are propounding or introducing,that will only introduce more corruption,and elite-ism. You can use Osun state as a prototype to test-run this policy in Nigeria,because Osun state was in recession waiting for Nigeria to Nigeria arrive,and now Nigeria has arrived. Suspend institutions and laws in Osun,and allow aragbe an absolute power,it will do a lot good to u and ur co-travellers. This is one of the reasons Nigeria must be renegotiated,probably adopting true federalism. Some idiots in Southwest and North,musn't be allowed to mull policies and programs that we in the better south considers unvaible and awkward,and we will be kowtowed into adopting same,because of yeye presidential system of government.

These jackals in power first showed their hand in the 2016 budget proposal, where they had planned to steal up to half a trillion Naira in padded expenses.

Now, as before, the rapacious political elites in power want to auction off our national assets to themselves.
It's the same repeating patterns; Atiku, Obasanjo, Danjuma, The Yaraduas, the Abachas , and lest we forget, the Babangidas

It's déjà vu all over again.

Interestingly enough, it was only Goodluck Jonathan who did not auction off national assets to himself and family.
