Amaechi Decries Rising Cases Of Undemocratic Act By Politicians

Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers state has criticized what he called the rising cases of undemocratic acts by some politicians saying this portends grave danger for the 2015 general elections.

Addressing participants at a symposium on the review of the 1999 constitution and its impact on judicial reforms in Abuja, Mr. Amaechi advised judges to be prepared for multiple litigations as politicians will upturn results of elections with the connivance of those in authority.

Mr. Amaechi urges judges and lawyers to defend the nation’s democracy and blamed the current security challenges in the country on the absence of state police and the culture of impunity.

The factional chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) further told lawyers at the gathering that the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has lost its voice saying this portends danger for the 2015 general elections.

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who expressed support for judicial reforms, said a morally upright judiciary will help in upholding the tenets of democracy while a former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Dahiru Musdapher advised judges to work towards restoring the confidence of the people in the judiciary.

Former president of NBA and convener of the symposium, Mr. Joseph Daudu advocated a constitution that reflects the aspirations of the people.

The clamour for the separation of the office of the attorney general of the federation from that of the minister of justice and the issue of Holden charges are some of the issues that dominated discussions at the forum as legal experts expressed concern that the nations prisons are overcrowded due to Holden charges.
