NASS invasion: We demand an apology — Okonkwo

By Elizabeth Uwandu
WKA—A pro-youth campaigner and  Social Democratic Party, SDP, aspirant to the House of Representatives for Idemili North & South constituency of Anambra State, Mr Uche Annie-Okonkwo, has demanded an apology from the Department of State Security, DSS, to the Nigerian public over its unprovoked invasion of the National Assembly, the sacred heart of our democracy.

He said: “There are behaviours that are not just unacceptable, but pointedly so grievous and completely abhorrent. No worse act can be this abhorrent, than the rehearsed anarchy rendered in dark hoods by the DSS upon this often harassed totem of our democracy. In fact, it was an absurd theatre with no sense, too dense, with neither mirth nor rhyme”.

He stated, as a determined convener of the  ” Together for Everybody–working for everyone” teamwork advocacy to facilitate Nigerian youths to take better charge of their governance arena, I was transfixed with shock when my supporters  that are working so hard for me, drew my attention to what was then happening at the National Assembly, a house I ask them to vote me into and urge even more to aspire to. That was too much institutional thuggery and a debasement difficult to contain.

Continuing he said, “Yes, it was good news that the architect of this script was sacked  expressly. I, therefore, advise and dare to demand, that for those who my aspiration inspire, and the goodwill of mentors I draw from, an apology from the DSS is not just expedient but a healthy disinfectant  to isolate the act as personal, not a routine duty protocol.”

Calling on all Nigerians of voting age, especially the youths who are the bulk of the voting population to work hard and determine their destiny by the choices they should make in 2019, he reminded them that, the time for our better tomorrow begins today and now.

Hon. UCHE Annie-Okonkwo, who has double honours in political science and philosophy, is a good governance ambassador and an incurable optimist  that a restructured Nigeria is best and faster from our voluntary restructured mindsets, values and attitudes.
