Your impunity is setting the Nation backwards, Activist hits governments
Comrade Idris Miliki


A human right activist based in Kogi State, Comrade Idris Miliki, has hit hard on government at all levels in Nigeria, saying their alleged impunity, is setting the Nation backward in terms of development.

 

Miliki, who is the Execute Director, Conscience for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution, CHRCR, made the statement in Lokoja, Kogi State, during an interview with Our Kogi State Correspondent, Tuesday October 1.

 

According to him, those governing the country have continued to put the constitutional provisions of the land aside, by promoting impunity, disobeying court orders and impoverishing the citizens.

 

 

While calling for a review in the policies of the country, Miliki emphasized that the current economic and security challenges bedeviling the Nation could be addressed, if government at all levels invest more in the pursuit of peace, rather than maintaining peace.

 

He lashed both the Federal and State Government for “spending unjustifiable resources on security votes”.

 

"When we look at issues in Nigeria, some people think is about federal government. No doubt, the federal government takes larger responsibility. But there are other responsibilities meant for the state and local government. Unfortunately, people still enjoy impunity, lack of democratic principles and rule of law. Local government election are not conducted at various states in the country. For me, this are very key issues. If you want to enjoy democracy, if you want to enjoy peace and bring development, all arms of government must function effectively”, he stressed.
