A Nigerian based in Poland, Prince Adekunle Adebayo Ayoola has warned those making moves to truncate the growing country’s democracy to thread carefully urging them to learn the obvious lessons of political instability coupled with wanton killings and destruction ongoing in Sudan.
Ayoola, a political scientist and chieftain of the the ruling party, APC from Odogbolu Local Government, Ogun State said that it was even disheartening to see African countries like Egypt and Ethiopia closing their borders against thousands of people trying to escape the war in Sudan, saying that this was the more reason why all hands must be on deck not to allow anyone destabilize Nigeria because the consequences would be unbearable and very devastating.
In a statement made available to journalists over the weekend, Ayoola said that those calling for war in the country for their own selfishness should just have a rethink because no country will open its border to accommodate millions of Nigerians who would want to take refuge in another country.
The international trade expert said that he was really sad that Egypt and Ethiopia refused to open their borders to those fleeing from the wanton killings and destruction in Sudan saying that when the war broke up in Ukraine, the neighbouring country of Poland on humanity ground, opened up their borders to Ukrainian and non-Ukrainian and even assist them to their final destination.
Ayoola said “I don’t know why Africa is doing this to Africans, when the Ukraine crisis erupted, there was a similar issue but Poland moved to accept Ukrainian and none Ukrainian access to Poland with a special passage visa to the final destination which enable many that crossed to be airlifted from Poland back to their respective countries.
This was premised upon humanitarian and the common good of all. Africa Union seems a mirage, Ethiopia and Egypt taking us steps backwards when we suppose to be moving forward like every other Union e.g European Union. It is just a shame, and the earlier AU put its house in order, the better”.
It will be recalled that Sudan’s Army Chief, General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and Rapid Support Forces, a paramilitary being led by Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo are battling for the soul of the wartorn country and it is on record that at least over 5000 people have been killed since the civil war started about two weeks ago.
