Home Affairs Minister, I would explain why authorities at Maula Prison denied opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) officials permission to donate maize and drugs.
If I were my man ‘Chenji Golo’ I would appreciate that the picture being portrayed is that government put the spanner in the works because it felt DPP would score a point from the worthy cause.
How I wish I were the Minister of Home Affairs, because I would realise that it is selfish and inhumane for government to block the donation when prisoners had gone for three days without food.
Although DPP’s move for the failed donation could have been to gain political mileage, government also goofed by rejecting it without a valid reason.
If I were the minister, I would be ashamed of the incident. In fact, if I were Uladi, I would realise that as opposed to being frustrated by the move, DPP has actually gained political mileage and some sympathy votes from the prisoners.
I would accept the harsh reality that government made a big mistake in the way it handled the issue.
That is if I were my man Uladi Mussa. Fortunately, I am not that dude.
