Senator Ben Murray Bruce has said the federal government denying presidential aspirant, Rabiu Kwankwaso use of the Eagles Square, Abuja for his declaration today shows for government doesn’t abide by the rule of law.
According to the lawmaker, it goes a long way in showing the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, who is visiting Nigeria today that the regime doesn’t believe in democracy.
He also asked what it would have cost president Muhammadu Buhari to allow Kwankwaso use the venue.
In a twitter post this afternoon, the ‘Common sense’ senator wrote:
The sad thing about denying Kwankwaso the venue is that it will only show visiting British Prime Minister, @theresa_may that she is dealing with a regime that does not believe in democracy and the rule of law. What could @MBuhari have lost by allowing Kwankwaso use Eagles Square?

Reno Omokri on his part, using the excuse that Kwakwaso was denied using Eagles Square is a dumb idea as it would have been better for the government to use UK Prime Minister’s visit as the excuse.
He wrote this via his twitter handle this afternoon.
The reason giving for denying @RMKwankwaso the use of Eagles Square is so unintelligent. How can they use that ‘working day’ excuse? A smart government would have said that because of @Theresa_May’s visit they had to cancel the event for security reasons. Short, smart and simple!
