Dasuki, Sowore Release: Buhari Bowed To Pressure From The USA After Years Of Disobedience To Court Orders

Buhari, Sowore and Dasuki

So many Nigerians, socio-cultural organisations have reacted to the sudden release of Sambo Dasuki, Omoyele Sowore in a fashion not reminiscent of the tyrannical tendencies of Major Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and his blatant disobedience of several court orders from Nigerian courts and ECOWAS courts.

Buhari has refused and disobeyed court orders to release Sambo Dasuki in the ast four year, in what many think was based on simple personal grievances with Buhari.

Activist and convener of the RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore, in the evening of Tuesday, December 24, was released alongside Col. Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser.

Dasuki was seen here for the first time in four years reunited with his family praying and being hugged by family members.

Dasuki has been detained under the pretence which Buhari and his cabal called “threat to national security” a term usually used by tyrants to detain opposition or someone they fear and used to obfuscate the unsuspecting public.

Buhari met the new United States Ambasssdor and it was alleged that she ordered President Muhammadu Buhari to release all political and religious prisoners or he and his regime may face serious consequences from the international community. Few days before the release of these men, the United Congressmen have addressed a serious worded letter to the Nigerian Attorney General, Mr Abubakar Mallami urging him to respect the rule of law and democratic tenets of Nigeria and release Omoyele Sowore.

Mrs Mary Beth Leonard in the conversation with Buhari who sounded very traumatised said that ” the recent listing of Nigeria for human rights concerns created an impression that some people were being unfarily treated or marginalised in the country. I know that those with access have created an impression of being marginalised, but I sit here with clear conscience and I took an oath and I am honouring the office”.

Ambbassador Mary, who was not deterred told Buhari that “Nigeria was listed in the watch list to deepen the conversation on humanitarian situation in the country, especially with religious leaders and mediators”

Many would observe that Buhari’s government has overseen thousands of deaths of mostly Christians in the hands of Fulani herdsmen, who are largely Muslims. He dragged his feet and refused to designate the group as terrorists but rushed to proscribe the Biafran group IPOB as terrorists. Also, the Shiite group led by Sheikh El-Zakyzaky whose crime was only a religious march, which allegedly blocked the passage of Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Tukur J. Buratai.

It is obvious that the United States have over time observed the trends in the tyrannical administration of Muhammadu Buhari and has decided that it is time to address his dictatorship and stiffling of religious rights of Christians and Shiites group in Nigeria.

The United States Congressman Chris Smith earlier yesterday said that “Buhari must account for all the killings by Fulani herdsmen”. This is a very serious matter that could take international dimension if care is not taken. Buhari could be brought to international court to give account of the killings by Fulani herdsmen and state what measures his government took to check on their activities, if any.

Some Nigerians have expressed their feelings about how the man they have seen as a tyrant, who doesn’t bow to court orders or the judiciary, rather have this arrogant attitude towards them has bowed to little pressure from the United States.

The question is would Buhari begin now to turn a new leaf or go back to his old ways? But it seems the new Ambassador of the United States is one who will not let Buhari behave as he has been doing in his last four years as a tyrant

I’m Not Religiously Biased In Appointments, Says Buhari |RN

President Buhari and Northern Christian Clergy

President Muhammadu Buhari has distanced himself from accusations of religious bias by his administration, insisting that he works with individuals based on merit.

He stated this when he received a delegation of Northern Christian Clergy at the Presidential Villa, in Abuja.

The religious leaders visited under the aegis of National Leadership of Arewa Pastors and Non-denominational Initiative for Peace in Nigeria, led by National Chairman  Arewa Pastors Peace Initiative, Nigeria (APPIN) and Presiding Bishop, Bishop John Abu Richard.

President Buhari called on responsible Nigerians to speak up and not cede the space to those he described as ‘rabble-rousers’.

Pastor Richard, who claimed he represents 45,000 pastors in the 19 northern states, in his remarks, acknowledged the good leadership the President is rending to Nigerians in the area of restoring the economy, boom in the agricultural sector, tackling of insecurity, fighting corruption and his genuine efforts of being a great father to all Nigerians both Muslims and Christians in Nigeria.

The cleric, who was silent on Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi school girl still being held captive by terrorist sect, Boko Haram, over her faith, demanded the President’s support 5,000 our Arewa pastors National delegate prayer congress at the Eagle Square on April 26.

Richard said they want to counter those deceiving and poisoning Nigerians with fake news to destroy the president’s good intentions for the country especially those giving the impression that he (Buhari) is anti-Christians and some ethnic groups in Nigeria which they described as ‘a big lie’.

In the words of Pastor Richard,  “We the 19 Northern States pastors under the New platform called the Arewa pastors Non-Denominational initiative for peace in Nigeria believe in your leadership and we are here to let you know that we are fully standing by you and your government to ensure that you succeed and peace is restored to every and corner of the country.

“And to counter those deceiving and poisoning Nigerians with fake news to destroy your good intentions for the country especially those giving the impression that you are against Christians and some ethnic groups in Nigeria which is a big lie for instance: Some Pastors using places of worship to preach hate. People using Church to preach violence. (If you preach war and war broke out who will go to Church for worship).

“We believed that the Mr President has no Islamization agenda in Nigeria, because if he cannot do it as Military Head of State with a Muslim Deputy Head of State, how can it be done under a Democratic government.

“This is just an opposition propaganda, about the killings around the Country, we observed that it is not only Christian that is the victims, both Muslims and Christians are affected, and the Government is doing everything possible to solve the problem.

“What we need to do is to come together as a people to support our government in other to bring to an end to this circle of violence and we assure Your Excellency that we will cooperate in exposing any information that will be available to us as regards to the perpetrators

“We demand His Excellency, 1. That you support our 5,009 Arewa pastors peace and unity National delegate prayer congress at the eagle square on Thursday 26th April 2018.

“We will want His Excellency to link us with the relevant security agencies in our crusade for peace and fight against hate speeches and those dark walls that separate us as we will network with our counterpart from the East and west to hand over those of our colleagues being used by the enemies of our togetherness to inject confusion and false stories into the public space resulting to the destabilization of peaceful co-existence we were enjoying in the country.”   (The Sun)
