|Politics / Bill Seeking To Make Sharia A Federal Law Quietly Passes 2nd Reading by lonecat: 7:19pm On Nov 04, 2016|
was shocked to watch the live proceedings of the House of Representatives as covered by NTA2 and saw that the bill calling for the criminal aspects of Islamic Sharia law to be implemented in our legal system in Nigeria at the Federal and states passed the second reading on Thursday, October 28, 2016.
I was even more shocked because even though there were many Christians in the House no one raised an objection!
The Speaker of the House, Hon Yakubu Dogara, who presided over the proceedings said that what this meant was that it would now move to committee level where it will be discussed fully before the House would decide on it finally, but it is curious that not even one voice of dissent was aired against it!
I waited till 9pm to hear what NTA Network news would report about it, but there was a blackout of reportage about it!
Of course, other issues discussed and decided in the House on same day were reported but not this one! The bill to amend the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to make provision for the full implementation of Sharia Criminal law at the federal and states legal system has passed the second reading in the House of Representatives and no one is telling Nigerians what is happening!
For all we know, when a bill passes the second reading unchallenged in parliament it is almost as good as passed.
Long before the 2nd Republic, Muslim leaders in Nigeria have always agitated for the full implementation of Sharia in Nigeria. Nobody has forgotten the hot debates that took place in the Constituent Assembly of 1978 about the place of Sharia in the 1979 Constitution.
Christian members kicked against the full implementation of full Sharia because non-Muslims would fall victim of this law. In the end, a compromise was reached that the Sharia Personal Law be allowed, not the criminal aspects.
The same thing that happened in 1988 Constituent Assembly that produced the 1989 Constitution, which never took off. In fact, in the 1988 Constituent Assembly, General Ibrahim Babangida, then Nigeria’s self-styled military president, had to stop all debates relating to Sharia and other sensitive issues when he saw how inflammable the debates were becoming, and retained the status quo.
The 1999 Constitution drew much from both the 1979 and 1989 Constitutions and retained Sharia Personal law.
Now, Muslims, under President Muhammadu Buhari have surreptitiously attempted to amend the Constitution to insert the full implementation of Sharia without carrying Nigerians along!
Muslim leaders have always argued that Sharia law is meant for Muslims only. But Christians have always refused to buy the argument because in practice, non-Muslims have often been dragged before Shariacourts and have been adjudicated by a legal system repugnant to their faith. Several documented cases abound to prove this.
Besides, Christians have always argued why the government that is supposed to be neutral to all religions should uphold the religious laws of one religion with public funds to the harm of the adherents of other faiths.
These are some of the issues that make some of us to take with a pinch of salt the claims that President Buhari means well for this country. Our job is to bring these issues to the fore to create awareness of what is happening. Whatever happens afterwards is beyond our power. It’s up to you all.

He is the leader of a country & every single one of his citizens are looking up to him. all these damage control that people are trying to do now can't help anything because international communities can't buy into this 'it was a joke craps' let's just find a way forward & leave behind the mistake

I certainly do not support ladies walking the street naked, same way I don't support the act of the man that made the video. this is a COMPLETE HARASSMENT, DISRESPECTFUL & UNCIVILIZED. it is an infringement of her right to choice of clothing. in a sane climes, that woman would be checking out properties in choice locations by now to buy with d settlement from a law suit resulting from the man's foolishness.
people should learn to mind their business

ebujany:did you say support him?
anything short of democracy count me out.
this is certainly not a democratic way of doing things.
-stopping people from a peaceful protest (even in UK & U.S, people are allowed to protest peacefully)
-killing unarmed protesters
-ignoring court orders (if he feels all the judges are corrupt & no court can pass a true judgement then he should close down all the courts in d country because it's not only ordinary citizens case he should allow corrupt judges to preside overnight)
- unlawful adoption of men from their various homes thereby terrifying their family members
-sending DSS to arrest a state house of assembly members for trying to impeach the governor (which is their duty as stipulated by the law)
the list just goes on.
no matter how corrupt people are, there are ways to fight them within the ambient of the law, u don't just come up with ur own style of governance overnight & u will expect sane people to support it.
we have 3 arms of government but the other 2 arms are been neglected, the executive now does everything.
|Politics / Re: wike's show of shame against federal agents by lonecat: 12:07am On Oct 10, 2016|
ebujany:so they can charge them to court separately really? oh c'mon u can do better than this.
on the case of the SGF, it was the panel set up by NA that uncovered the N270m grass clearing issue & he has been invited but he declined to appear before d house, so it's not a rumor.
Dogara coming out to deny the allegations doesn't make it any less true. what about all the evidences?
watch how the corruption allegations against the judges will die naturally. keep ur fingers crossed.
Just understand that these rogues knows themselves
|Politics / Re: wike's show of shame against federal agents by lonecat: 6:00pm On Oct 09, 2016|
ebujany:is it the judiciary that asked the federal government to withdraw the forgery case against SP & DSP?
is it the judiciary that asked the federal government to turn a blind eye against the SGF who cleared grass at the IDP camp with N270m?
is it the judiciary that asked the federal government to ignore the padding case against Hon. Dogara despite all the damning evidences against him?
do u want me to continue?
|Politics / Re: wike's show of shame against federal agents by lonecat: 1:33pm On Oct 09, 2016|
ebujany:If we do not address these things the way they are, it will get to our turn one day. don't feel because you are not in government such thing wouldn't befall you.
in every other parts of the world where high profile men are been arrested, is this how they go about it?
has any of the judges ever been invited & he declined to show up?
did I hear u say arrest warrant?
do u have any prove that an arrest warrant was presented?
were they fugitives?
you don't go to a man's house by 1am with his family in it and pull down his door with a sledgehammer & you'll come here & tell me it's ok
FYI: anyone found corrupt in anyway whatsoever should face the music but not the kind I'm seeing in this country where everyone is corrupt but no one is in jail.
