Can Any Sane Person Refer President Muhammadu Buhari As A Democrat?

A democrat can simply be defined as any person or leader, who believe or supports democracy.

In democracy, there is absolute freedom of expression without any forms of suppression. There is fairness and equality of everyone in the society and the right for everyone to take part in the decision making of the government.

A democrat under any umbrella of democracy is also known by his peaceful stands in resolving any issue other than application of violence approach.

Having known all these, it will be very difficult for any sane person to just assume that the likes of Nigeria president, Muhammadu Buhari should be referred to as a democrat.

Furthermore, a democrat is a custodian of rule of law, he/she is the main principal to protect life and properties of the citizens of any given society.

However, in the case of president Muhammadu Buhari,we can vividly understand that he is very far from all these, hence he is the one ordering for the violation of the rule of law, violation of human rights and clamping down on activist, journalists, protesters and judicial officers.

Since the creation of the British Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is the only President, second to Abacha, who has the worst record of human rights violations.

He is also the first person to have the worst record of bigotry appointments in his government, thereby subjecting others to the denials of their fundamental rights of belonging to the country. He has also incited violence and ethnic cleansing all over the Christian communities in Nigeria, especially in Biafra land, subjecting the citizens to unimaginable terror and hardship.

Recall that the same Muhammadu Buhari was a major participant in the 1966-70s genocide perpetrated against Biafrans, which claimed the lives of about six million Biafrans. Also, he was the chief masterminder of the electoral violence of 2011, when he lost election. He has been indicted as a strong patron of the most dreaded terrorist groups in the north called Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen. He ordered the massacres of the thousands of indigenous people of Biafra {IPOB} severally in a broad day light. Instead of releasing the leader of the indigenous people of Biafra,  Nnamdi Kanu and other political prisoners whom different courts have ordered for their release, he chose to subject them under continuous incarceration.

All these make mockery of anyone who calls or may wish to refer President Muhammadu Buhari as a democrat.

The recent amnesty report concerning the massacre of hundreds of indigenous people of Biafra by Muhammadu Buhari's security henchmen, and the shameful denial and unreasonable excuses from the security agencies shows how deadly the government of Buhari has transformed into.

Also in recent days, despite the trending Amnesty reports indicting Nigeria armed forces on crimes against humanity, they instead of shielding their sword, went ahead and fearlessly massacred another countless Shiite Muslim members for just no reason other than that they assembled peaceful, asking for the release of their religious leader who has been illegally detained for roughly a year now.

With all this facts, I wonder what may be the definition of a word "Democrat" for anyone who may still address Muhammadu Buhari as such.

Finally,it will be very dangerous if the presidential advisers of Muhammadu Buhari keeps deceiving him by not letting him to frankly know what democracy entails. I also wish to let Nigeria and her presidency to know that what they are practising is not far from dictatorship. We are in democracy whereby the rule of law is supreme and have no respect of anyone; therefore, President Muhammadu Buhari has no right to still hold anyone whom the laws declared free.

He should as a matter of urgency release Mr.Nnamdi Kanu and other political prisoners in different locations of the Nigeria prison or detention.
