Anarchy, Imperial Presidency Looms, ACN Warns

The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) yesterday warned that the country was tottering on the brink of anarchy and imperial presidency, saying "the action taken by President Goodluck Jonathan on the judicial crisis has exposed his true colour".

In a statement issued in Lagos yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party therefore called on all lovers of democracy and the rule of law to come together to say NO to the emerging Emperor Jonathan."While a nation may survive the antics of an incompetent president - and indeed Nigeria has survived a series of such presidents under the PDP since the country's return to democratic rule in 1999 - having an incompetent and dictatorial president can only precipitate calamity for any nation.
