Opposition Is Not Fabrication Of Falsehood, By Okoi Obono-Obla
It is disheartening and uncharitable that some people under the guise of opposing the Federal Government of Nigeria under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari have consistently and persistently resorted to the peddling of absolute falsehood and red herrings to distract the government and discredit it.
Truly democracy thrives on opposition but opposition must descend to peddling of lies, fabrication and dissemination of false stories against the government and its institutions.
just last week , the opposition and Jonathanians told a lie that the Federal Government delegation accompanying President Buhari to the United States of America is made up of more than two hundred and would cost the government about N2 Billion Naira! However the truth of the United States was made up of thirty three people and would cost the Federal Government next to nothing because the delegate would be housed in Blair House belonging to the Government of United States of America. I also recall the petty lie told by Jonathanians that wrist watch worn by Mrs Aisha Buhari on the day of inauguration of her husband is worth more than thirty thousand dollars!
One of such falsehood making the round is the story that the former Chief Security Officer, Godson Obua to former President Goodluck Jonathan has died in the custody of the Directorate of State Security Service (SSS). This is a wicked, mischievous, irresponsible and nefarious lie from the pit of hell. The truth of the matter is that Godson Obua is alive and kicking.
Godson Obua was legitimately invited by the SSS, a body that is statutorily entrusted with the responsible of maintenance of security of the country to answer questions that bother of threaten to national security and; how this translate to his dying in custody leaves a sour taste in the mouth of how frivolous some of us can be in the cloak of opposing government.
