M’Belt group alerts on plot to destabilize Plateau through frivolous court’s judgement




The Coalition of Middle Belt Groups have warned politicians against engaging in any act to destabilize Plateau state through frivolous court judgements.…CONTINUE READING

The convener of the group, Dr Ben Omale, who spoke with newsmen in Abuja, said it is expedient to draw the attention of Nigerians and the entire world to the accelerating efforts by anti-democratic forces to destabilize Plateau State and, on a larger scale, the entire Nigeria.

Omale condemned recent rulings by the Court of Appeal that decimated the Plateau State Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from the National Assembly.

He expressed concerns that such politicians have described the rulings that deprived Plateau state of its seats in the National Assembly as democracy at work or the judiciary being the last hope of the common man.

“Such commendations of the robbery carried out against the Plateau PDP are emanating from the beneficiaries of the crime, viz the All Progressives Congress (APC), particularly the Plateau state chapter.


“Other non-APC members that have commended the rape of democracy are people who do not have the benefit of the full details of the fundamentals at play at the backend. Our belief is that people in this category and other Nigerians should be made aware of the dangerous script playing out in Plateau State, which has implications for the rest of the country. We call this script dangerous because, from our findings, Plateau State is merely being used as a pilot by the closet fascists who are well on their way to making Nigeria into a one-party dictatorship,” he said

Omale said the Middle Belt would have waited for their plot to enter into more advanced stages before confronting them with all available legal tools at the disposal of Nigerians but he said therein lies the new problem that must be urgently tackled collectively.

“They have compromised the judiciary to the point that some of the colluding judges in the Court of Appeal and other parts of the judiciary are almost card-carrying members of the APC. This compromised status turned out to be defining in the ruling that they gave to steal the PDP’s National Assembly seats.

“Gentlemen of the press, we expect that you will naturally want to know how the foregoing concerns us. Our concern is the danger posed to democracy when a House of Representatives member, Yusuf Gagdi, with his allies in the judiciary, has constituted himself into the undertaker that will bury the judiciary in Plateau state while acting as pallbearer of our truncated democracy at the national level. “


The Middle Belt coalition also accused Gadgi of allegedly swearing to make the APC governorship candidate, Nentawe Yilwatda the state governor even when he clearly lost to the incumbent Governor Caleb Mutfuwang of the PDP.

“We had ignored earlier intelligence that the judiciary would be used to hijack the mandate expressed by the people of the Middle Belt in choosing their national representatives, but we now see things differently now that the judges have shown that they are aligned with the APC. This development has now convinced us that the other aspects of the plot for APC to take over Plateau State by any means are no longer assumptions but realities that must be urgently confronted in the interest of democracy, peace, and security across Nigeria.

“In specific terms, we have become aware that the failure of Gadgi and his co-travelers to steal the governorship seat at the Supreme Court will make them resort to hijacking the Plateau State House of Assembly to illegally move against the governor. They further plot to use this to trigger insecurity that will render the state ungovernable such that there will be a compelling breakdown of law and order.

“What should scare Nigerians and the world at large, gentlemen of the press, is that they plan to implement this playbook in other non-APC states in order for the party to control all the states of the Federation in the next eighteen months. In this, the Middle Belt is particularly endangered because we will bear the brunt of any resulting insecurity from this criminal experiment they are performing with Nigeria’s democracy, ” Omale said.
