China’s com­mu­nist party a model for Nige­ria – Shehu Sani

Daily Trust - - ONLINE REACTIONS -

It is quite baf­fling to hear some­body like Shehu Sani, with all his promi­nence as a civil-rights ac­tivist, now ad­vo­cat­ing an un­demo­cratic to­tal­i­tar­ian com­mu­nist one-party system as a role model for Nige­ria. Be­ing an ide­o­logue, es­pe­cially for a po­lit­i­cal party, is a good thing, but ide­ol­ogy alone, of any kind, would not qual­ify you as the best role model.

I do want to make a prepo­si­tion for Nige­ria to test com­mu­nism. On at­tain­ing self rule, our dear na­tion tested West­min­ster system of gov­er­nance which col­lapsed with blood­shed after six years only. After the civil war and long term mil­i­tary ad­min­is­tra­tions, Nige­ria went to prac­tice demo­cratic system be­ing prac­tised in the US but with large cost to sus­tain. But com­mu­nism may be the na­tion’s hope of sur­vival with min­i­mum cost. The NASS should call for a ref­er­en­dum thus set­ting aside the con­sti­tu­tion now in prac­tice to pave way for com­mu­nism.
