The Biden administration is paying close attention to developments in Nigeria with President Buhari human right abuses
Developing: The Biden administration is paying close attention to developments in Nigeria where President Muhammadu Buhari, a retired soldier who first came to power via a coup in the 1970s, He has overthrown a democratic lead government and became the Head of state taking charge of the Nigeria affair but was later overthrown and now returned to Aso Rock, the Nigerian seat of power, in 2015 as a civilian
Promising Nigeria change, to make 1 US dollar to equal to Nigeria 1 Naira, promising to crush Boko Haram in 30 days, promising to feed millions of Nigerian, kill unemployment in Nigeria, wipe hunger out from Nigerians, restore the health sector, revive a damaged economy, fix the power grid, rebuild the crumbling infrastructure, and reposition Nigeria as a democratic force for good
Is over 6 year since he came into power but has failed to deliver six years into his mandate. Nigerians say under his leadership, the Nigerian currency, the naira, has crumbled, unemployment numbers have brutally sped up skyward, poverty has expanded rapidly and consistently, human rights abuses have skyrocketed and tribal and religious divisions have been exacerbated. Nigeria has indeed moved from being in a frying pan to now to fire with no hope ahead as the master of dictatorship take its turn in dealing missiles with the Nigeria nationals
The country is now on the brink. It’s so bad that Buhari is not even on good terms with his Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo who has been sidelined by his administration, fearing that he may succeed Buhari soon now or later.
The Buhari government announced on Friday that it was suspending Twitter, indefinitely and by 12am 5th of June TWITTER stop working in Nigeria
The Nigeria Presidency and its cabals claimed that Twitter was threatening the corporate existence of Nigeria.
So the ban came after Twitter removed a Tweet from Buhari that violated its content policy. The Biden administration’s first reaction to any news outlet was provided to AfriNOTES from Washington DC.
In an exclusive statement, the administration described the suspension as concerning and a potential threat to democracies everywhere. a threat to democracy to Africa Nigeria and they the United States is watching the President Buhari lead administration very closely
The Biden administration has been losing patience with Buhari for some time now amid a growing list of human rights abuses in Nigeria the most populous black nation in the world.
Nigeria is Africa’s most populous country blessed with human and natural wealth, with bad Government, corrupt politician life in Nigeria is like a jungle and surviving has been so hard on the innocent citizens as all the Government personals can do is to loot the nation’s resource to the detriment of the entire nation
No light in Nigeria. though few Nigerians live with electricity, running water, and enough food which they funded by themself, while many have no electricity, no portable water to drink, no food but the hunger that The United Nations is warning that millions of Nigerians in the north are on the brink of starvation as Lake Chad dries up and insecurity metastasizes.
Insecurity is rampant in Nigeria, and terrorism is ferocious in the northeastern part of the country, even as the southern part of the country is currently burning with insecurity, while kidnappings and armed robbery attacks are spiraling out of control under Buhari lead administration.
It’s a ticking time bomb waiting to explode, no one knows when it will explode but many fear it will soon now or later and the social media ecosystem is where Nigerians vent their frustrations.
Now the government has decided to silence them, starting with Twitter as tensions escalate and a presidential election looms in 2023, the Biden administration may have to be more forceful with Buhari and may need to get ready to play a bigger role in Nigeria.
Nigerians told us that Buhari is a northerner, and any attempt to pass on power to another northerner after his eight years in office may throw Nigeria into chaos even if his administration was able to suspend Twitter, Facebook, Google, and all other American multinationals in the country. And that is our top weekend story for today 5th June 2021
