egypt_morsi

The Egyptian army has overthrown President Mohamed Morsi, announcing a roadmap for the country’s political future that will be implemented by a National Reconciliation Committee.

The head of Egypt’s armed forces issued a declaration on Wednesday evening suspending the constitution and appointing the head of the constitutional court as interim head of state.

In a televised broadcast, flanked by military leaders, religious authorities and political figures, General Abdel
Fattah al-Sisi effectively declared the removal of elected Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.

Sisi called for presidential and parliamentary elections, a panel to review the constitution and a national reconciliation committee that would include youth movements. He said the road map had been agreed by a range of political groups.

Nigeria has a history of regime change
Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on July 3, 2013 – 22:15.

In 1966 when the politicians where messing up, Nzeogwu and Co. cleaned the arguean stable in a very bloody coup.

In 1975 when Gowon was not performing, he was removed in a bloodless coup

In 1983 when NPN was power drunk, they were removed in a peaceful coup

In 1993 after IBB cancelled the June 12 elections, Nigerians forced IBB out of power

In 2015, Nigerians will vote PDP out of power because of the unprecented corruption in Nigeria since 1999.

There will be a COUP in NIGERIA before the YEAR RUNS OUT

God called me – he said – my son – I so much love you – I will tell you a secret.

“There will be a coup in NIGERIA before the year ends and Jonathan will be killed like a chicken”

I asked – “Are you sure?”

He said – “Am I not GOD that you people pray to and worship and use my name in vain to commit all sorts of atrocities? As long as I am still GOD – Jonathan is a DEAD man”.

I woke up – I was not sure if I had been dreaming or I had too much to drink.

Anyway, what difference would it make – Jonathan dead or alive? Even if the Khaki boys come – it will be same old wine in new bottles.

Egyptians speak with one voice but Nigerians are not. We are very far behind them. We need to see ourselves as one before looking up to Egypt people. Ethnicity and religious are major causes of our problems and our so called leaders are exploiting it against the masses. Lets start by seeing ourselves as one before talking of revolution. This is what His excellency Rt Hon Rotimi Amaechi is fighting for. He once said that Nigerians are too timid for revolution and I totally agreed with him.

Another Islamic terorrist is out
Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on July 3, 2013 – 21:30.

Another islamic terorrist is out of power. Egypt was a secular country but as soon as this islamic terorrist came to power, he changed the whole country into islamic, or terorrism. This is a warning to northern muslims who are terorrising Christians in the country and want to rule by all means, eventhough they are terorrists and do not qualify to rule human beings.

GREAT STEP FOR EGYPT, NEXT COUNTRY…!
Submitted by Okwuchukwu Ezeanyika (not verified) on July 3, 2013 – 21:18.

I have always posited that if DEMOCRACY is not centered on the GOOD of the COMMON MAN but a few of the “leaders” then it should not by any means be condoned. At that juncture, the military remains the bastion of hope for the COMMON MAN. As it is in Egypt so would it gradually be with those countries where the “DEMOCRATIC LEADERS” are clueless, dishonest, despotic, clannish, myopic, wicked and heartless such as examplified in Ebele, NASS, the Governors, and PDP. As it is in Egypt will it be in Nigeria one day. Insha Allah. Alahu Akbar!

Mark it, the next set of political leaders in Egypt would place the COMMON MAN as the centrepiece of governance and not on a few Islamic fundamentalists as was the case with the Morsi government. They would realize they have a WATCHDOG and not allow MPU (impunity) to prevail. Nigerian “political leaders” need a WATCHDOG now and very quickly too!

Am expecting African Union to just as in similar cases takes a stand. Don’t recognise the juntas and also give an altimatum to restore Morsi or be forced out by the Union standing army. Other wise, AU is a joke that can’t decide when it matters most. Toothless bull dog. Can oonly bully Comoros Island and Guinea Bissau. Shame.

The path to politically secular Egypt has been paved and no going back–power to the people!Congrat Egyptians.

Which country is next?
Submitted by Elmango MEat (not verified) on July 3, 2013 – 20:51.

The real issue is why is the army back? Is it the lack of democratic principles in the way Morsi has managed his country? Is it the Islamist Agenda that was rammed down the throat of Egyptians by this intolerant despot? Or the absence of political hope visible in the horizon for the ordinary Egyptians saddled with bearing brunt of the Economic disaster that has become the daily experience of ordinary Egyptians?

What became of the voice of those who camped day and night in the square for a change from corruption laden government only to be replaced by an intolerant Islamist one. I knew that once US pulled the political rug, and the Europeans found other places to spend their tourist ECU, Morsi was doomed. On the surface the Army struck, how much wink, wink assurances did they get from their external supporters? Syria, what next?

If political or economic corruption is a major factor, then lots of African countries from East to West are due for a change, military or otherwise!

Unfortunate for Egypt
Submitted by agbelero on July 3, 2013 – 20:50.

The people of Egypt have sold a chicken that lay many eggs for a guinea fowl.  You do not call in the militay to correct a bad civilian regime.  Power belong to the people and they are suppose to fight to have it back.  I always find it appaling when some people without sense of history ask for the military intervention in Nigeria. What kind of stupidity is that?  It is the military that brought us to the sad end we are today.  If Nzeogu had not intervene in 1967 we would still have a true federal constitution that works.  Yes, there was political strife (wet e) in South west, yes that is what democarcy is about i.e., people agitating for their rights.   We would have moved past that teeting problem and advance our democracy.

My only regret about Egypt is that I have over $10,000 dollars stuck in a Canadian based oil company that explore oil in Egypt and Yemen.

Bizarre occurrence and the fickle nature of the “people”
Submitted by dele Awogbeoba (not verified) on July 3, 2013 – 20:49.

What is playing out today is the most bizarre nature of “democracy” at work. A president was democratically elected by majority of the people of Egypt just “a year ago”.

His mandate (whether popular or not) was due to expire at the next elections. Every government suffers dips in popularity during its tenure. This is mob rule pure and simple. The Egyptian people and nation is in a state of chaos this evening. Best of luck to them.

some thought late gaddafi was just playing games with his ppl when he said revolutions without revolutionary ideas are dead-here we are in Egypt which has became a disgrace to the socalled ideals dat democracy stands for in d USA. The Yankees wanted to export their new democracy to the arab world via their socalled Arab spring-but failed! With the number of lives lost-the economy in shambles would it not have been better to have Mubarak remain in power to organize fresh elections? Aware d CIA is behind the crisis in Egypt-the military that took over the divided country shortly after mubarak left-were in the USA when the revolution took place. Sisi the chisel faced leader of Egypt is now the man the yankees want to install in Egypt as their new puppet-we were told no more coups in africa by the obamas-now what wld they call this-

it is so pathetic that months after the United State supported rebel to oust the former president of Egypt Hosni Mubarak, peace has not return to the nation. what will America gain with this propaganda agenda of theirs, meddling into the affairs of nations without proffering any lasting solution. if Hosni Mubarak was not good enough to bring about democracy and rule of law, how about Mohamed Morsi? well i really do not blame the US much but the countries that have allow themselves to be the puppet of America. this is the objective truth.

They are the one that introduce ethinicity, nepotism, corruption to the system. Hope we can learn some good lesson from our African brother Eygpt.

There is no doubt that a time will come that Nigerian politicians will be pursued from office in this manner. I know they won’t learn from Morsi’s experience, thinking Nigerians will continue to remain quiet forever. No!!!!! time to revolt is at hand!!! Politicians should watch out for a New Nigeria!!!!!!!!!!!!! Where masses will be valued than elected office holders and where the commonwealth of all Nigerians will not be for a selected few and where all citizens will be proud to be associated with the name NIGERIA……..
