Nigeria like China, is opreating one Nation , Two Systems as exemplified in the scenario in Zamfara State, where the Governor suspended a whole school for the flimsy reason that a page of koran was found in the toilet, an Igbo Group exposes.
Nigeria is certainly operating one government, two systems like China, an Igbo group has voiced out strongly. What is one nation, two systems ,an Igbo group -Voice from the East –VEAST querried ? In Igboland as in all other parts of the nation, Fulani herdsmen have been killing and maiming and raping women and kidnaping to no end, but the powers that be are playing the kid game with human lives , VEAST laments, pointing out that the security apparatuses in Nigeria seem to be incapacitated in bringing the Fulanis herdsmen who are also called bandits to book for fear of the known.
Otherwise inquired VEAST, how can one explain the fact that in Nigeria, there two systems of government, one for other Nigerians , the other for sharia that protects islamic interest.
In an address of journalists on the issue of religious bigotry in Zamfara State where the Governor currently suspended a whole school management and set up a 23-man panel to investigate the purely religious affair of a common page of a book called koran found on the floor of a toilet, the Convener of the group , Comrade Kindness Jonah , observed that Nigeria like Peoples Republic of China, is operating : one Nation, Two Systems: one for all other non muslims in Nigeria, the other for muslims, pointing out rather sarcastically that Nigerians are deceived into the racket that the nation is a democratic system , when it is in effect , an islamic state, ruled by sharia system.
Comrade Kindness Jonah ethused : ‘‘‘ How can one explain this sordid act of religious chauvinism in 21st Century where a Governor in a professed democratic government has the temerity to suspend a whole school for the flimsy excuse that a mere page of a book christened either koran or what have you, is found on toilet seat ?
How dare this Governor if not the open secret fact that Nigeria is an islamic state and the constitution is purely islamic constitution? What is koran by the way ? Is koran not for muslims alone? Why shouild the fact that mere a page of koran is found on the floor of a place be such a problem that can warrant a whole school to be shot down ? Is Zamfara for the muslims alone ? Are there not christain or hindu or other religion students in that same school closed down ? Can you imagine Abia State for instance, close down a secondary school for the fact that a page of Bible is found on the floor of the school is religious fanaticism now part of Nigerian constitution ?
Where is Nigeria really going with such people in power as Zamfara State Governor ? Why is it that no one of the Fulanis killing , kidnapping , maiming and butchering people is arrested by the security personnel ? Yet on the same ladder, why are those loosely arrested hardly ever face the law ? Why do the law enforcement agents know that Fulani herdsmen are everywhere parading AK -47, yet they cannot arrest any one of them, but incidentally other Nigerians that registered their non assault guns are force to surrender THEM , whereas Fulani herdsmen boldly carry around without any modicum of molestation from the security agents , such a deadly assault riffle as AK-47 ? Why do the same law enforcement agents turn rather to arrest people who come to them reporting that their relatives or wards or children were kidnapped or killed by the Fulaniherdsmen. Yet we say it is one Nigeria ? It may be one Nigeria , I agree, but certainly it is a country of one nation , two system : one for the muslims, another for the rest of Nigerians .
But never blame the law enforcement agents on closer examination because they must act the script written by the powers that be since they are made to operate by the maxim : obey the last order. What do you make out of a system where a Fulani herdsman is promptly arrested for killing a farmer, and taken to a security operatives’ station, but express order from above immediately mandates whoever is on the security counter, to release him forthwith ? ‘’’ VEAST summarily points out to whoever cares to listern that Nigeria is operating one nation, two systems of constitution : for islamic sharia, the other for the rest of Nigerians .
