Iyayi Was Murdered

festus_iyayi

ASUU former president, Festus Iyayi, was cruelly murdered-he did not die-by a yet to be identified assassin in the employ of the Government of Kogi State.
This is the only conclusion that can be derived from the facts provided in the media. According to the existing facts, while traveling along Lokoja-Abuja road in the company of his ASUU comrades on their way to Kano to discuss the current strike issue, an escort car in the convoy of the Governor of Kogi State, Mr Idris Wada, rammed into the ASUU bus killing Iyayi andinjuring some lecturers.
It is difficult to accept the wasting of one of Africa’s most cerebral and committed scholars by a reckless driver who probably assumed that because he was ‘privileged’ to be in a Governor’s convoy he was above traffic regulations and other users of the road, including even his intellectual superiors.
The murder of Comrade Iyayi is no doubt a product of the empty pomposity that pervades the corridors of power in Nigeria, from the Governors to their cooks.
This pomposity is seen in a culture of impunity and recklessness that gives them the sense that they own our lives, and all that belongs to this country.
Killings on the road by those who occupy government houses must stop.
It is a shame that it appears that the Governor of that State lacks the capacity to prevent his drivers from negligent driving, otherwise his convoy should not have been involved in another accident so soon after the tragic accident that claimed the life of his ADC just in December 2012.
It may well be that his drivers expect that the only way they can please a former pilot, that he is, is to literally fly on the road.
Whatever the case may be, the Governor bears responsibility for the murder of one of the most outstanding Nigerian residents. He has to pay for this anyway.
