The Nigerian Police Force have released extraordinary video of the scenes inside the National Assembly earlier this week when Politicians and Police clashed.

Chaos ensued after Nigerian Representatives sought access into the National Assembly but were blocked by the police in riot gear and who then fired tear gas in the government compound.

The video shows Politicians shouting at the Nigerian police and also other politicians inside the chambers, including the Senate President, David Mark.

The police released the video as part of their campaign to justify their actions, and released this statement with the video:

“IS THERE ANY JUSTIFICATION FOR THESE?”

- Why would anyone use a car to shove/push a uniformed Policeman performing his lawful duty? (04:26)
- Why would any group of persons rough-handle a uniformed Policeman performing his lawful duty and also refuse to submit to security screening into a Government building? (04:52)
- Why would any group of persons destroy Government property paid for with tax payers’ money? (08:00)

NOTE: Please listen carefully to all the ungentlemanly utterances in this video.

But members of the main opposition party, the APC, have decried the police actions as undemocratic. Nasir El Rufai described the police as ”….Jonathanian Police We Hail Thee…..”.

Nigeria’s main opposition party has stated that they “will not recognise the outcome of any rigged elections.”

Lai Mohammed, the spokesman for the All Progressives Congress, has stated: “the party will not recognize the outcome and will go ahead to form a parallel government.”

The statement was immediately supported by officials in the APC, such as Nasir El-Rufai who said “We will not recognize the outcome of any rigged elections, APC insists, slams presidency & we will form a parallel government!”

nasir el rufai parallel governmentNasir El-Rufai supports the statement on Twitter.

The statement warned the ruling party – the PDP – that it was “necessary to constantly warn the PDP and the Federal Government not to tamper with the 2015 polls because of their penchant for electoral desperation, which manifests in the intimidation of the opposition and the militarization of election, disposition to anarchy and propensity for impunity.”

However, Ahmady Adamu Muazu – the National Chairman for the PDP – warned that the APC against such statements: “They have started inciting the public again just like the way they did in 2011 and many innocent people were killed as a result.”

We will not recognize the outcome of any rigged elections, APC insists, slams presidency – November 21, 2014

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has slammed the presidency for its agitated response to the warning that if the 2015 elections are rigged, the party will not recognize the outcome and will go ahead to form a parallel government, saying that represents the stand of the party.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Friday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said that what Gov. Rotimi Amaechi said at the APC’s Salvation Rally, which has now rankled the presidency into a state of delirium, was simply to reiterate the stand taken by the party before the last Osun State Governorship election.

”Those who are fretting about this statement are those who are planning to rig the elections and they should be warned that Nigerians will no longer accept the outcome of any fraudulent polls. Those who incite the people are those who steal their mandate.

”What we made is a conditional statement. If A happens, then B will follow. That means if elections are not rigged, there will be no problem. It is therefore laughable that anyone will call that statement treasonable,” it said, adding that there is no higher treason than the subversion of the people’s will.

APC said it is common knowledge that anywhere in the world where elections have been rigged, the consequences have been dire, and Nigeria will not be an exception.

”Let us remind the presidency, in case it has forgotten, that election fraud triggered a civil war in Algeria in the early 1990s, led to the killing of over 1,000 people in post-election riots in Kenya in 2007/2008 and fired a near revolution in Iran in 2009/2010. Electoral frauds also corrupt democracy and breed dictatorship, and risks making the people to lose confidence in democracy. Why then would any government react violently if warned against election rigging?” the party queried.

It said that instead of issuing threats and engaging in name calling, the presidency should simply brace up to ensure that the forthcoming elections are not only free, fair and credible, but are seen to be so by Nigerians and the international community.

APC said it is necessary to constantly warn the PDP and the Federal Government not to tamper with the 2015 polls because of their penchant for electoral desperation, which manifests in the intimidation of the opposition and the militarization of election, disposition to anarchy and propensity for impunity.

The party said already, the process leading to the 2015 polls are flawed, with moves to disenfranchise millions of Nigerians by making it impossible for them to either register or get their Permanent Voters Cards and the plot to depopulate the strongholds of the opposition.

”PDP and the governments it sired, especially at the centre, are lawless and anarchic. That’s why they can unleash the police against federal legislators in an attempt to force a removal of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. That’s why a state under the control of the PDP will use seven lawmakers to remove the Speaker in a 26-member House of Assembly.

”Because it is said that eternal vigilance is the price of freedom, we will constantly warn the PDP and the Federal Government not to tamper with the 2015 elections. We will constantly chide them for trying to institutionalize impunity. We cannot and will not be intimidated by an uptight presidency,” it said.

”The PDP and the Jonathan Administration are the masters of impunity, and they will not hesitate to exploit any sign of docility in the face of their evil intentions on the part of the opposition. The lessons are there: Had the members of the House of Representatives been docile on Thursday when remote-controlled security agents invaded their premises and barred them from entering, Tambuwal would have ceased to be the Speaker by now.

”For us, the gloves are off. We will no longer engage in any nicety as long as some people are bent on thwarting the will of the people through electoral fraud. All we are demanding is a free, fair and credible election. All we are saying is that no one should incite the people by stealing their mandate. How these demands can be construed to mean treason is as baffling as the do-or-die disposition of the ruling PDP to elections,” the party said.

The United States Embassy in Nigeria has released a statement condemning a recent speech by Ibrahim Shema, Governor of Katsina state, in which he called for the killing of the “cockroaches of politics.”

“We are deeply troubled by Governor Ibrahim Shehu Shema of Katsina State’s recent statements calling for the killing of the “cockroaches of politics,” says the US embassy. “The rhetorical threat of violence undermines the democratic process and is utterly unacceptable in a democratic society.”

ibrahim-shema-nigeria-cockroaches Ibrahim Shema, Governor of Katsina State

The Katsina Governor was filmed talking to a crowd of supporters in which he urged them to crush any political opposition like “cockroaches.” The crowd in the video responded with shouts of “Kill them!” – to which the Governor responded again – “Crush them!”.

“You should not be bothered with the cockroaches of politics… cockroaches are only found in the toilet even at homes… If you see a cockroach in your house, what do you do?” the Governor stated at a small political rally. “Anyone who does anything against you, we’ll retaliate, am telling you now… I am telling you, we will fight back.”

It is reminiscent of the political statements made before the 1994 Rwandan Genocide, and the European Union has also stated they find the statement “unacceptable”:

“If it is confirmed, that kind of statements are I’m sorry to say, extremely dangerous and unacceptable,” said Michael Arrion, Head of the EU Delegation to Nigeria, said to reporters.

Governor Shema, in a statement signed by his spokesman, Lawal Matazu and published in the Leadership newspaper – said the content of the video was taken out of context – “Governor Shema hereby emphatically rejects the insinuation that was injected into the context of his address at the occasion…

… The content of the video, which was about the need for the Delegates not to allow themselves to be intimidated or harassed was completely taken out of context and distorted.”

The US embassy makes clear the importance of the upcoming Nigerian elections in 2015:

“The United States remains committed to working with Nigeria to strengthen its democratic institutions in the years to come.  A peaceful election in February 2015 will constitute a major step toward reaching that goal.”
