ARRESTS OF THE NATION'S JOURNALISTS, RETURN TO DARK AGES - NNAMANI
By CHARKES KUMOLU
LAGOS-FORMER Senate President, Senator Ken Nnamani, has described the recent arrest of The Nation Newspapers' journalists and staff, as a distraction for President Goodluck Jonathan, noting that it showed that Nigeria was going back to the dark ages.
He also called on the Federal Government to ensure that Vision 20:2020 did not end as a mere slogan.
Nnamani, who spoke in Lagos, Sunday, during the presentation of awards to some oustanding Nigerians by Hallmark of Labour Foundation, argued that anyone who felt offended by any publication should seek redress in court of law.
He called on the Jonathan administration to focus on delivering the needs of Nigerians, in order to avoid experiencing 'Nigerian Spring.''
Former Supreme Court justice, Mr. Justice Kayode Eso(rtd), who spoke at the event, bemoaned the crisis in the judiciary, saying that it does not speak well for Nigeria's democracy.
