The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, on Monday has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of revisionism and playing a dangerous game with the lives of Nigerian People.
The rights group said this while reacting to the recent hikes in the pump price of fuel and electricity supply.
Press recalls that the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) and Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IKEDC) had earlier announced the implementation of the new Service Reflective Tariff Plan.
HURIWA said it was an act of cruelty for a government to impose punitive price hikes at the time millions of Nigerian People are bearing the brunt of the economic losses brought upon them by the emergence of COVID-19 and its attendant lockdown rules.
HURIWA noted that history is not fraudulent but accurately represents the heartbeat of time, stressing that no historical account of the last five years will vindicate the mischievous, cruellest, clueless and anti-people policies that have been unleashed on Nigerian People by the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration.
The rights group reminded President Muhammadu Buhari that as the leading political opponent of the Goodluck Jonathan administration, he was at the forefront of a well-orchestrated rejection of plans by the PDP led government to stop fuel subsidy.
“Can we tell Buhari that revisionism is an attribute of cruelty and the decision to impose further hardships on the already impoverished and oppressed populace at this time that all other nations of the world are rolling out remedial economic subsidies to revive private businesses of citizens buffeted by the consequences of OVID-19 lockdown, is nothing short of absolute wickedness.”
HURIWA further urged Buhari to read the constitution which he swore an oath to keep, adding that there are a plethora of provisions obliging the President and other public office holders to avoid cruelty in the execution of public policy since such are to be guided by public good.
