Falana warns of coup, says elections may not hold

Femi Falana

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Femi Falana, has warned that the March 28 and April 11 elections may be sabotaged by anti-democratic forces, which could lead the military to stage a coup d’etat and set in place an interim government.

Mr. Falana, who stated this in a speech delivered at the Foursquare Gospel Church owned Life Theological Seminary, Ikorodu, on Sunday, said despite assurances by President Goodluck Jonathan and the Independent National Electoral Commission, there was no indication that the election will hold as billed.

He also warned of the likelihood of post-election violence should the vote go forward.

Both President Jonathan and the Independent Electoral Commission chair, Attahiru Jega, have maintained that the new election dates are sacrosanct.

“There is no indication that the election will hold,” he said. “If the INEC goes ahead with the conduct of the elections there are fears that the exercise may be sabotaged by anti-democratic forces. If the election holds the results may be rejected leading to a post-election violence which may threaten the corporate existence of the nation. 

“In the circumstance, an interim government may be established and be saddled with the task of preparing the country for another political transition. In the alternative, a coup d’etat that may be staged by the top echelon of the armed forces under the pretext of restoring law and order and fighting the menace of insurgency. The military wing of the ruling parties succeeded in Mali and Burkina Faso. But having divided the country along ethnic and religious lines, the masterminds of the political crisis are not likely to profit from the perfidy.”

He therefore, asked Nigerians to prepare “for a long drawn out battle for the liberation of the country from political and economic predators”. 

In his speech, the lawyer commended the renewed onslaught against the deadly terror group, Boko Haram, in the North-East region of Nigeria by both the federal government and the Nigerian military.

He, however, asked the military to discontinue the court martial of several solders who had earlier complained about lack of sophisticated weapons to face the insurgents.

He said the government’s admittance that it purchased new equipment for the fight to succeed, meant that the soldiers were justified in the earlier protest.

He also asked the Federal Government to implement the recommendations of the Ambassador Usman Gilmatiri presidential panel on insurgency in the north east region and embark on a special programme to address the problems of child education and youth unemployment in the region.  

On the state of the nation’s economy, Mr. Falana said the bulk of the intervention funds created by the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration was for the rich.  

According to Mr. Falana, the funds including- Agricultural Credit Guarantee Scheme (N69billion); Commercial Agricultural Credit Guarantee Scheme (N200billion); the Nigerian Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (N200billion); Small and Medium Enterprises Credit Guarantee Scheme (N200billion); the SMEs Restructuring and Refinancing Scheme (N200billion) and Power and Airlines Intervention Fund (N300billion) are yet to have effect on the economy.   

“Sequel to the crash in the price of crude oil the Federal Government announced that austerity measures would be imposed on the hapless Nigerian people,” he said. “Because of the gross mismanagement of the economy by the government and its allies workers are now salaries for months. After the elections the people are going to be made to bear the brunt of the looting of the treasury and costs of running the government.  

“But in spite of the grinding poverty in the land Nigerian legislators are said to be the highest paid in the world. The country’s public officers equally receive the highest estacodes in the world. With over 10 aircraft Nigeria has the largest presidential fleet among the developing nations in the world.” 

The lawyer also accused the Central Bank of Nigeria of “dollarization of the economy”. 

“In a bid to dollarize the economy and destroys the Nigerian economy the CBN supplies millions of dollars to the foreign exchange market on a weekly basis,” he said. “Although Nigeria has become the largest importer of the United States dollars in the world neither the International Monetary Fund (IMF) nor the World Bank has ever questioned the reckless devaluation of the economy. Even, the National Assembly which is debating the 2015 Appropriation Bill has not deemed it to consider the deleterious effects of the increasing devaluation of the national currency on the implementation of the Budget.” 

The media was also not left out as Mr. Falana accused the media of diverting attention from Nigeria’s problem of youth unemployment, infrastructural decay, insecurity, corruption, currency devaluation to giving undue prominence to the campaign of calumny and character assassination embarked upon by some politicians.  

“The media have thrown caution to the winds by colluding with certain politicians to divert attention from the crises of youth unemployment, infrastructural decay, insecurity, corruption, currency devaluation etc,” he said. “Thus, by giving undue prominence to the campaign of calumny and character assassination embarked upon by some politicians the media have denied the Nigerian people the opportunity to make informed decisions on the candidates of their choice.”

    Femi Falana,

    Is this any way to be a civil rights activist?

    You are NOT a civil rights activist. You are an errand boy of Bola Tinubu.
    In that paid servitude you run outstandingly bad errands for APC Islamists.
    Your poor plagiarism here of Wole Soyinka’s earlier statement is nauseous.
    Whilst you are here asserting the inevitability of a coup d’etat this week for sure,
    Wole Soyinka relayed the information to President Jonathan to forestall a coup.

    But you want a coup, because your Islamist APC masters can’t win the election.
    You were even the first to rush to court to defend Buhari NOT having Wasc.
    From that day on, no evil too heinous could be put beyond you as a person.
    You showed openly that where free money is involved, you’ll defend evil.
    You have no moral compass and thus means you an utter waste of space.

    From Bola Tinubu to Muhammadu Buhari you have justified all APC perjurers.
    You are the exact opposite of a civil rights activist – an execrable pretender.
    Gani Fawehinmi publicly warned you before he died that your ways are wrong.
    He warned you that the path you chose to riches is evil, roguish, and, corrupt.
    At a time of massive stealing of Lagos state treasury you stood for stealing.
    At a time of Islamist Jihad you stood for Islamist genocide for the love of money.
    In all moral terms you – Femi Falana – are a basket case awaiting damnation.

        The first order of business there is an open PROBE of Lagos state funds from 1999.
        To be followed by arrest, arraignment, conviction and sentencing of treasury thieves.
        Restitution must then follow with mass seizures of illegitimate assets of APC thieves.

            “The problem that we have is the President himself- a President who prides himself on his own weakness and incompetence and whose love of false prophets and strange women knows no bounds and has no end. A President who is as confused and as clueless as the comic character called Chancey Gardner in the celebrated 1970’s Peter Seller’s Hollywood blockbuster titled ”Being There”.

            A President who does not understand the meaning of the word ”class” or ”honesty” and who breaks his own word consistently. A President who has abdicated his responsibilities, destroyed his own political party, divided his own country, alienated his own friends, humiliated his own mentor, abandoned his own people, brought ridicule to his own faith, cowers before his own officials, betrays his own governors, scorns the international community and breaks his solemn oath to protect and defend the Nigerian people. A President who does not even have the nerve or the guts to call to order any of the numerous Jezebels that control him. He is the problem we have in our country today and until he resigns, is impeached or is voted out of power nothing will change and Nigeria will continue to go from bad to worse. That is what you get when you vote for a man who never wore shoes to school.”

          ISLAMIC AGENDA OF YORUBA MUSLIMS IN APC

          Buhari is not contesting 2015 election to fight corruption; no, no, no, he is contesting
          ONLY to advance ISLAMIST SUPREMACY in Nigeria. He has no other plan or idea.
          After SHARIA LAW is enthroned as public law in the 36 states, Buhari’s Fulani tribe
          would be the PERMANENT RULING CLASS in that wise.

          YORUBA MUSLIMS would then be PERMANENTLY assured of number two (2) position
          on the hierarchy of the Islamist State of Nigeria. That’s what APC party is all about.
          APC is an electoral version of the rabid Al Qaeda fight for Islamic State of Nigeria.

          What is still being disguised as election in 2015 is actually a full-blown ISLAMIC JIHAD
          to capture YORUBA CHRISTIANS. The trick is to give brooms to naive Yoruba Christians
          for them to wave around and mislead them that APC is the same old and secular
          Alliance for Democracy (AD) party.

          • Omooodua

            ……….(2) ISLAMIC AGENDA OF YORUBA MUSLIMS IN APC

            The purpose of going to school is to have and sharpen one’s ability to reason.
            Yoruba Christians are likely the best educated groups in Nigeria, but alas, they
            are becoming the least thinking. I am writing this letter out of extreme anger plus
            huge dis-appointment at Yoruba Christians who are being led by the nose to a
            slaughterhouse by the Muslims but told they’re only being taken on a frolic.

            What is progressive in Muhammadu Buhari’s ATAVISM to take Yorubaland by the scruff
            of the neck and throw it back inside the time-warp of 1804 A.D Jihad of Sokoto Caliphate?
            What is progressive in the rulership by a man having a primary 6 school certificate?
            What is progressive in the APC announcing a plan to enact Sharia Law in the 36 states –
            given that nation-wide Sharia Law is a very good definition of Islamic State of Nigeria?

            Muslims are defining “Islamism” as “progressive” for educated Christians to accept.
            Whereas, APC is an Islamic organization – full of Alhajis – signifying nothing but servitude
            for those Yoruba Christians who are not given to folly, like Pastor Yemi Oshinbajo.

    Dumbo and the PDP are not going into this weekend’s elections to try and win it, they’re fighting for an inconclusive elections by causing enough troubles to cancel elections in as many wards as possible. They know they cannot win it outright, so they will only try to stop Buhari from doing so by disrupting voting by all means available to an incumbent President. Falana is right, it is their invitation to the military so Dumbo’s cousin, Gen. Minimah, can be propped up with old gangsters like IBB ati Abdulsalami hiding in the shadows to pull the rug from Nigerians’ feet. The pointer is Dumbo’s refusal to obey a court ruling against deploying soldiers for elections… Soldiers at 300m away can hijack our democracy which is where Dumbo has placed them. But e go happen! Change must come… PDP must go and a new hand allowed to try and turn things around. Afterall, after 16yrs of sleeping on one side, Nigeria must turn to the other side for fresh air. It’s our right!

    Muslims are the ones who broke the protocol of mutual co-existence in northern Nigeria. Ditto,

        It is only bastards Yoruba that will vote for Goodluck Jonathan and PDP. Why? Goodluck Jonathan is an Ijaw President. He is the worst president ever in the history of our country. He gave some crumbs to Gani Adams and Fasehun to cause security problems in Yorubaland-Lagos- on March 17 because he does not care. So we Yorubas met in Ibadan and decided that it is ONLY a bastard Yoruba that will vote PDP, vote for Goodluck Jonathan. Se o gbo? Do you hear?

      I agree with you. If Buhari is declared winner of the next election, a lot of them in PDP and past military head of state will become uncomfortable. Amaechi’s deputy governor was never honest with the governor at any time. He merely played along because the whole member of the state assembly decamped enmasse. He knew that if he did not play along he would have been impeached. So he waited for the last minute but I believe he has greatly miscalculatef. I may be wrong in my assumption but I believe we shall all find out this time next week. Let us keep our fingers crossed.

    APC is a party on deception and entrenched on unwholly propaganda and falsehood. “Today, I address you out of the fullness of my heart. Recall that in December 2013 out of extreme loyalty to my boss and friend, I joined the APC along with other disillusioned Rivers people.

    “Ever since, as a true nature of APC unfold, I continued to twist and turn in extreme mental and emotional agony. The more I struggle to belong, the more the Rivers in me rejects the APC.

    “After carefully studying and analysing the leadership of the party, I have come to the sad conclusion that the APC is a party of rebels, insurgents and anarchists clothed in the robe of pretence and deceit.

    “APC is a party founded on deception and entrenched on unwholly propaganda and falsehood.

    Ikuru further urged his teeming supporters and the people of Rivers state to vote for the PDP at all levels of the general elections.

    While describing the PDP Governorship candidate in the state, Nyesom Wike as a patriotic Rivers man who means well for the people, Ikuru charged the people of the state to vote for President Jonathan this weekend.

    “I therefore on behalf of my teeming supporters and my humble self denounce the APC and we all jointly and severally resign our membership of the APC.

    “My dear people of Rivers state we of this generation will not in good conscience , forgiveness and compassion out of posterity for the spirit of our unborn generation if it is recorded on the annals of history that after 48 years of Rivers people supporting leaders from all other parts of this country without resources will where the same and handed down the very first ever president from this region granted us by privilege.

    “I therefore wash my hands off this treachery.

    “In the light of the above I therefore wish to use this privilege to call on all my supporters and the good people of Rivers state to join hands with other well meaning Nigerians to massively vote for President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the transformation agenda that has brought so much relief and succour to the greatest number of Nigerians.

    Amaechi’s Deputy defects to PDP, says “APC is a party of rebels, founded on falsehood”
    “I also urge all Rivers people to vote for Chief Barrister Nyesom Wike who has shown by his antecedents, track records and boundless capabilities that he will deliver good governance to the good people of Rivers state,” he said.

If only Nigerians can open their lazy eyes and not be lost in their usual optimism and emotion, the writing has been on the wall all along.

    This Mr. Falana and his Yoruba APC brothers should be called to tell Nigerians and the world who these anti democratic forces are. They have been talking about interim government, there is no smoke without fire. They know who is planning it.
    I can tell you that they are the ones planning it. Just in their usual way, they are feeling the pulse of Nigerians and when they are defeated , they will start shouting of rigging, causing trouble as they did in the northern part of Nigeria in 2011. These people should be watched closely . Obasanjo, Tinubu , Buhari are the ring leaders. They should be held accountable for any problem in this country. Let’s look at it closely, is it GEJ who was properly elected in 2011 and who is widely accepted by Nigerians will be planning interim govt? It doesn’t make any sense at all. He doesn’t stand to gain anything . I think it is the man who wanted to change the constitution so that he can rule Nigeria forever and his brothers are the ones planning interim government. Law agencies take note!

      Just like they planned June 12 annulment? Who removed your head?

      Okey as long as an average nigerians reason and harbour backward and uncivilised mentality like you the nation will never moved forward. GEJ was widely accepted in 2011 because they erroneously assume that with his level of education he will bring meaningful contribution to the development of Nigeria both politically educationally and economically. However GEJ tenure in office is a woeful, sad, bitter and disastrous chapter in the history of this nation. We have never seen such unprecedented level of corruption, gross financial mismanagement, insecurity, abuse of power by the members of cabinet, waste of resources in any nation like we have seen in Nigeria under the BadLuck regime.

    Jonathan is fighting for his political soul and the soul of his party, the PDP. Should he lose this election he has himself ONLY to blame because of his brazen and arrogant attitude to Nigerians’ cry over corruption and the devil-may-care manner he carried on as if all was well. In fact he and his PDP party never realized an opposition of this nature, with its electoral vibrancy that threatens the very root of the PDP, would ever emerge in an election as this one. The PDP had always felt quite smug and complacent on the prospects of a ‘landslide’ victory over any opponent. Moreover, should the PDP lose on Saturday, the PDP would never forgive Jonathan and the part of the country he comes from. In fact that would be the end of national politics under the PDP for anybody coming from that part of the country. But should Jonathan win on Saturday it would be a close shave and the question that would arise is: will he ever learn his lessons? I ask this because if he continued to line up this type of men and women in his cabinet, especially the petroleum minister, he would be digging another deep hole for the next presidential aspirant emerging in 2019.

      Good points. I care less who wins between Jonathan and Buhari. They are just flip sides of the same coin, none is the answer that Nigeria requires. Regardless, I want Buhari to win for the health of Nigeria’s democracy so that the seeming one-party state can end and politicians can realize that there is no automatic retention of power. They have been lording it over Nigerians for so long, but power should belong to the people and politicians should be licking the people’s ass.- as Jonathan is licking the ass of the Yorubas right now.

    This is not the kind of voice Nigerians want to hear at this time. Is this the best way to draw attention to himself?
