The President of One Love Foundation, Chief Patrick Eholor has asked the Federal government of Nigeria to refrain from further harassment of journalists in the country.
Eholor, who was reacting to the invitation of Channels TV crew by the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission NBC, stated that the reporters who carried out the the interviews on Benue State Governor, Mr Samuel Ortom, and former naval security personnel, Navy Commodore, Kunle Olawunmi acted within their rights as enshrined in the Freedom of information Act.
He decried the unfortunate development of journalists being harassed by state or federal governments after doing their job, stating that the government should instead, support the journalists.
Eholor argued that instead of fishing out the perpetrators and sponsors of violence in the government, they are shielding them and even harassing those who have identified them.
Hear him “There is a concerted effort by a group of Northern elites to turn this country into a sort of Sudan or Afghanistan and most of them are in the Federal Government so know themselves. I still don’t know how this tall dream of the Northern elite will be achieved.
“This country might look docile but what I know is just a little cracker, a little push and all hell would break loose.
“The billionaires and millionaires and elites might be having a Field day but I know their calculation would go wrong soon. All it needs is a one time mistake that would trigger that age long revolt we all claim or clamour for.
This is how it would end, with way-
1. Either a very short Civil war is ignited that wouldn’t last for 6 months before a hurried truce is brokered by each region or
2. The West decides to take out those that are pushing a Swivet in the country for stability in the region.
“Note that unlike Afghanistan that have a strong history of resilience and Moslem orientation with a strong collective language advantage, a Taliban style of leadership can not hold in Nigeria. The ethnicity is too complicated for that, the authorities know this hence their cautiousness planning.
“But like what I have always said, this madness wouldn’t last for long, day go soon break for Nigeria, wahala go soon start”.
“The ultimate agenda is to cow and silence the South come 2023. If the southerners allow this intimidation to continue, the hegemonic cabal will install another Muslim northerner as president – nothing will happen. It will mark the beginning of internal colonization of the South. The South will be further weakened and impoverished to the extent that it will be impossible for a Southerner to rule Nigeria again for the next 50 years.
“The atrocities must stop. The bandits system must fall”, he stated.
