We wish to appreciate all men and women of goodwill who have shown courage in the face of the well-orchestrated intimidation and judiciary adjudged illegal detention of Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah by the DSS .
We have seen Nigerians united beyond the ethnic and religious divides while calling for justice for Nigerian born investor – Dr Ifeanyi Ubah. To this unbiased Nigerians, we say God bless you .
We watch people travel from far and near and from all walks of life to show solidarity to Ifeanyi Ubah even under heavy down pour .
We have seen Ndi Igbo raising their voice in unity within and outside our country, calling for the justice for Ifeanyi Ubah .
We are even more surprised that people from various ethnic groups in Nigerian, have in all honesty, joined the clarion call for the freedom of this employer of labour .
For the first time in our land, in the same manner we all played down on our ethnic and primordial sentiments during the Ebola outbreaks.
We are witnessing another remarkable show of unity and inter regional solidarity by Nigerians raising their voice and joining efforts to fight against this new ‘Ebola Virus of injustice’ that if left uncontained, will infest the fabrics of our justice system and endanger the health of our democratic being.
It has gotten to the point that our bank of justice could not with hold the justice currency further while the loud voices calling for the rain of justice in a time the harmattan of injustice was covering our land forced down the rain on May 25th 2017 and the cloud could not hold the rain and reign of impunity as Justice Muhammad Idris moved in nodding to the details of the justice in the city of Lagos
He ordered for the release of Ifeanyi Ubah that day.
When Justice Muhammad Idris of Fed High Court Lagos called for the release of Ifeanyi Ubah unconditionally within 48hours, there was jubilation across our land .
Why ? It’s simply because the Order for his release represents that much sought after Justice in our land and reassures our conviction that judiciary is indeed the last resort for the common man.
No Country that quest for thriving economy will treat an investor like Ifeanyi Ubah like DSS is doing currently.
Meanwhile, we are still in shock by the DSS ‘militant’ interference in a pure civic matter and its undisciplined altitudes to criminalize a pure commercial transaction between NNPC and Capital Oil.
We hold without any fear of contradiction that freeing Ifeanyi Ubah will restore confidence in the Nigerian economy that is begging for job creating platforms.
The American President Donald Trump went to G7 Summit with “Protectionism doctrine” for American Companies, while Nigeria a nation in dire need of investments and retention of promising enterprises is here killing her own business with the discouraging way it is treating one of its most enterprising personality and vibrant company – Ifeanyi Ubah and Capital Oil respectively.
Finally, it is no more secret that Nigerians are so concerned with this development, no wonder the mass appeal for justice and we call on Nigerians to be weary of the antics of Justice Halima of Abuja High Court subtle attempts to confuse the justice system with his conflicting nod to the continual detention of Dr Ifeanyi Ubah.
We have achieved this feat not because of our sole efforts, but by your supports, prayers and actions. We appreciate in a special way the following:
To the Media Constituency, especially those that have championed the quest for justice in the fore, mid and back pages of their print media outfits, shown their disdain on the screens of their electronic media outlets and voiced their disdain for the corruption of the justice system on our airwaves at this point in time, you are appreciated as we are strengthened further in our belief that we can build a Nation run by the pen of justice .
To that Mrs Amina Alima who wept at the High Court of Lagos due to injustice against Ifeanyi Ubah even with her 3 years old child, your tears like many will heal our land .
To those using various social media platforms to show solidarity, you are building a society of Justice with your efforts . History will be kind to you all !
