Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mike Ozekhome

LAWYER and human rights activist, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) has said that that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) might not survive to witness the 2019 elections, if Nigerians continued to be subjected to the present hardship due to the nation’s ailing economy.

This is just as he maintained that bad leadership, and not corruption, had been the major problem of the country, noting that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s fight against corruption had been selective.

Ozekhome, who stated these in Odo Osun, while speaking with newsmen after being conferred with the chieftaincy title of Baa Mofin by the Oludo of Ido-Osun, Oba Aderemi Adedapo, maintained that “APC cannot survive ahead of the 2019 election, because all other political parties like ANPP, ACN and so on that were parts of the APC formation had been sidelined.”

“I can see alignment and realignment; I see a third force coming on board in the next dispensation. The APC is accusing the PDP of ruining the country for 16 years. All of them ruined it, because in both APC and PDP, you will find defectors from the two parties,” Ozekhome said.

“Using cutlasses to break doors of judges in the dead of the night and invading their residences like rampaging terrorists and armed robbers all in the name of fighting corruption is uncalled for,” he said.

  1. Anyone can be arrested at anytime. There is no law that forbids arrest of a suspect at night. Everyone is equal before the law. If regulatory bodies fail to discipline corrupt officials, it is the responsibilities of law enforcement agencies to deal with them.It is appalling that a Nigerian will undermine impact of corruption on development. Wonders shall never end. It is clear now that we have many people like Jonathan.
    God help Nigeria.
