Democracy day is a day that has been set aside for us to reflect on the activities of the government and how much they have been able to promote the rule of law and continue the act of good governance as laid down by the heroes of this Nation who fought for the return of democracy after years of Authoritarian regime.
It is also a day for Nigerians to celebrate freedom, leadership based on the will of the people, enforcement of fundamental human rights and democratic advancement across the country.
In the past years the Judiciary have at different instances been unlawfully invaded by people of different sects, there has been a high level of disregard to Court Orders and this has in no way affected negatively the true democracy we seek to attain in this country.
We call on the Federal Government to take a critical look into these acts of ridicule being melted out to the Judiciary.
In a time like this, it is unfortunate to know that the Police and certain security agencies whose constitutional roles are to protect lives and citizens of Nigerians have turned themselves to tools used to torture, harass and intimidate citizens including lawyers whilst carrying out their professional duties.
