Deborah Samuel: Don’t lose sight of Atiku, Tambual action in 2023 – Horewa Voters

The Nigerian Human Rights Writers Association, Horewa, on Tuesday urged 2023 voters not to ignore the failure of the HDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar. And the general manager of the campaign, Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal, to bring justice to the murdered Deborah Yakubu seven months after she was murdered by fanatical Muslims on the grounds of blasphemy.

The killing of Deborah, a 200-level Home Economics student at Shehu Shagari College of Education in Sokoto, northwest Nigeria, in May will always remain in the subconscious memory of Nigerians, said HURIWA National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onubiko, in a statement. of good conscience regardless of their religious affiliation.

The group said Atiku and Tambual value politics and campaigns that go beyond getting justice for the murdered Christian student who was lynched by Islamic extremists in broad daylight on the campus of her school.

Horewa added that Nigerians will never forget how the Nigerian police force has so far played a game with the case, arresting and releasing key suspects in the heinous crime, the case has disappeared from court, silenced by the silence and complicity of the northern political class. Who supports the killing of Christians in the region.

The group criticized Atiku for his defense on Sunday for saying he deleted his initial tweet about the killing of the Christian student because he did not approve of the tweet.

“I asked for a tweet to be deleted because I usually approve of every tweet. So, since I didn’t agree to it, I said, ‘Delete it.’ If you read my subsequent statements about this murder, I condemned it.

“Nowhere is it said or injunctive in Islamic faith that you can go and take someone’s life, anywhere, it has to be through due process,” the former vice president said during Channels Television’s town hall show.

Onwubiko of HURIWA said, “Efforts to defend Atiku and efforts to wash bad image have failed again as the entire public can now see the hypocrisy of the northern political class dominated by radical Muslims. So, Atiku tacitly endorsed the killing of Deborah by stating that a person can be killed for blasphemy if a Only following “due process”?This is unreasonable!Heavily condemned for a presidential candidate!

“The plain fact that the governor of Sokoto State has been denied justice for Deborah and yet the governor is the general manager of Atiku’s campaign shows that he values ​​regional politics more than providing justice to the victim of a mob attack. Atiku and Tambual are on the wrong track of history and Nigerians will never forget their seemingly double talk It offends the Muslims of the North who are betting on their vote in the presidential elections on February 25, 2022.

“Freedom calls for the police to do the right thing and resume the trial of the two main accused in the matter. The legal system must ensure stiff penalties for the perpetrators to send strong signals that Nigeria is not a banana republic where carnivorous entities display animalistic tendencies.

Voters in 2023 should watch out for leaders who tend to increase blasphemy-related murders under them and reject them with their thumbprint on next year’s ballot.

Finally, Freedom will declare Deborah a martyr for human rights because her killing is not justified under any domestic and international laws. Deborah’s memories should be immortalized to commemorate the injustice of the northern radical political class dominated by Atiku, Tamboal and others.”
