MASSES BEAR THE BURNT WHEN COUNTRY IS SANCTIONED — GANI ADAMS LAMENTS



The Aare Ona Kakanfo of Yoruba land, Iba Gani Adams lamented on how democracy has definitely collapsed since the Government has refused to obey court judgement.

He added that when sanctions are slammed on the country that it's only the masses that bear the brunt.  This was as a result of Omoyele Sowore who granted bail but Department of State Service (DSS) rearrested him in the Court premises.

He has this to say:

"Nigeria Will Burn To The Ground If Hardship, Insecurity And Killing Continues."

"We’re not feeling the economy at all. It’s becoming more biting by the day on the people. People don’t analyse economy on the pages of the newspapers. The masses have to feel the impact of a good economy. People have to see food on their tables and essential commodities have to be affordable for them. There should also be jobs. Many are losing their jobs. Banks sack their workers and industries are collapsing.

"The last hope of any common man is the judiciary. But in a situation where the government refuses to obey court judgements, democracy has definitely collapsed. I am one of those who fought for democracy so I can’t keep quiet. We’re not feeling the economy at all. It’s becoming more biting by the day on the people. People don’t analyse economy on the pages of the newspapers. The masses have to feel the impact of a good economy. People have to see food on their tables and essential commodities have to be affordable for them. There should also be jobs. Many are losing their jobs. Banks sack their workers and industries are collapsing.

"Now, SaharaReporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore, that didn’t steal Nigeria’s money nor carried guns was granted bail. But the Department of State Services invaded the court premises to rearrest him. It’s unfortunate but some leaders who read partisanship into these cases would be consumed at the end of the day if care is not taken. The security agencies may not know the consequences of what they are doing now. But the global village will paint the country black and any aids or grants meant for the country would be blocked.

"By the time we realise it, there will be sanctions from countries. When sanctions are slammed on the country, the people in power will not feel it. It’s the masses that will bear the brunt. If countries block trade advantages against Nigeria, the masses will feel the effects."
