Kalu expresses worry over incessant coups in Africa as Soldiers topple Gabon Govt

by Amos Kalu

The convener of the Global Initiative for Good Governance, GIGG, an advocacy group in support of true democracy and development, Dr Emeka Kalu, has expressed worries over the spate of coup plots that have retaken a foothold on the soil of Africa due to actions and inaction of political leaders who have continued to take the continent back to the stone age as a result of lack of vision and oversized thirst for power.

In a statement he issued on Thursday and made available to the press, the vocal politician and US-based businessman said he is worried for Nigeria, especially at a time when the system is tensed as a result of hardship arising from the ill-conceived, anti-people and obnoxious policy that has kept the people most desolate within the second quarters of the year, calling on the judicial system to save Nigeria from the precipice of imminent conundrum.

“African leaders have not done enough to improve the lives of Africans, they don’t grapple for power to offer leadership, they only do so to occupy space and enrich themselves the more.

“They are gradually taking us back to the 50s and 60s when military intervention held swear due to the irresponsibility of the leaders then who didn’t understand that there is a limit to the extent the people can endure pain. They seek to be hung unto power for power’s sake and do not pay heed to the plight of the masses, hence, the sorry situation.

“First it was in Guinea, an attempted coup in Bissau, a successful coup in the Niger Republic and today it is Gabon. Who’s next?”, he queries.

Dr Kalu therefore called on the Nigerian leadership to be careful what they wish for. He called on the Judiciary to ensure that justice is served in the interest of the people and not to uphold the wishes of desperate politicians to avoid situations that will bring tension in the polity and lead to unpredictable outcomes.

“We have come a long way as a nation in democracy to risk going back to the dungeon. African leaders must understand that the world is evolving and therefore must not expect the led to take things easy like in the olden days, especially now there’s hunger in the land”, he advised.
