One believes that by now, people are getting used to the politics of distraction and sympathy by former office holders who resort to it when they are called to render account of stewardship.
The latest being ex NSA Sambo Dasuki, who is following in that tradition. One hopes those who have swallowed this bait of persecution, witch hunt, vindictiveness, etc will realize that it’s all distraction after he admitted himself that the security operatives came with a lawful warrant from a court of law.
By the way, if some people have forgotten, the office of the Ex NSA needs to be investigated for a lot of security breaches which endangered the corporate existence of the nation and ridiculed our national integrity before the eyes of the world. e. g, endangering national security by the award of national oil pipeline protection contract to criminals, illegal export of cash for arms to South Africa, Ekitigate, security agents in hoods without identification in Osun gubernatorial poll, assault on democracy by indiscriminate arrest and detention of voters, thus violating their electoral rights in Ekiti and Osun states gubernatorial elections, illegal assault by arrest and detention of TNS/RMS staff by DSS prior to the Osun gubernatorial election for conducting a poll survey, the prosecution of the war against boko haram, the treasonably offence of attempting to truncate democracy by arm twisting INEC to postpone the 2015 general elections by six weeks, etc.
One thinks, it’s important we get it straight and clear that this is an era of change, responsibility and respect for the rule of law, which is clear departure from the culture of criminality, lawlessness and impunity of the immediate past and no amount of blackmail and campaign of calumny will distract the present government from exercising it’s constitutional responsibility.
