Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Femi Gbajabiamila, has let rip at the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari over its human rights record.
According to Gbaja, the country cannot attain national unity without respect for human rights and the rule of law.
He also said Nigerians must be free from want and possess resources to pursue their ambitions, while calling on government to ensure that insecurity becomes a thing of the past.
The Speaker, according to a statement signed by his media aide, Lanre Lasisi, listed these conditions while speaking at the 112th Founder’s Lecture of the King’s College Old Boys Association in Lagos on Saturday.
He said, “Nigeria’s unity is incumbent on our ability to do three things and do them well.
“The first is to ensure that the government respects, protects and guarantees the fundamental rights of all citizens, without exception.
“The second is to provide a society where people are free from want and have resources to pursue their dreams and achieve their best aspirations.
“The third is freeing our people from abject terror and accompanying limitations of wanton insecurity in all its forms.
“This is the pathway to a truly united Nigeria.”
