Sacrifice and the prerogative of mercy

Alexander Pope, in “An Essay on Criticism,” said it poetically that To err is human, to forgive divine, meaning that making mistakes is part of human nature.
Everyone commit sins and make mistakes. God forgives them, and people are acting in a godlike (divine) way when they forgive.

The aphorism comes to mind with the recent passing away of the Mother of super cop DCP Abba Kyari, Yachilla.

Even though it is an inevitable part of life, the death of a parent, though a normal order of life, can be a profoundly devastating loss. And the death of a mother is one of the most traumatic things someone can experience. The passing of time helps to ease the pain but it will never totally go away.

Kyari’s mother’s tragic passing have raised concerns about getting him justice because the allegations levelled against him are bailable in nature. And though a court granted him bail last year, he still remains in custody.

DCP Kyari, who no doubt excelled in his chosen profession, has made mistakes, hence this clarion call to help remind everyone of the preciousness of life and the importance of standing together in times of tragedy.

This is evident through the genuine massive support indicating the outpouring of love and condolences to show solidarity to Abba Kyari and his family during this difficult moment.

While offering prayers for the eternal repose of the deceased, we all must acknowledge the significant contributions of the seasoned police officer to the development of Nigeria’s security at large.

This case raises a number of issues that border on the violation of fundamental human rights of DCP Abba Kyari who played a vital role in the police service and who, given the chance, will continue to give his best to the nation.

It is therefore time for the FG to honor and respect his sacrifices to our dear nation. Otherwise, people of his calibre and patriotism would be demoralised and lose confidence in the true meaning of honesty and service to the nation.

Of note is the genuine massive support and solidarity to Abba Kyari and the Kyari family during this difficult time, a testament to the power of community and the importance of standing together in times of need.

Grief is the final responsibility of loving, we therefore call on the President Bola Tinubu administration to wade into the matter and order for his release and reinstatement to service with immediate effect.

This would be a profoundly fitting tribute to his mother’s memory and a testament to the nation’s commitment to justice, fairness, and recognition of his outstanding and unprecedented service to Nigeria.
May Almighty Allah forgive her and may Jannatul Firdausi be her final abode.
