Buhari HAs No Power To Free Kanu - Keyamo
One of the cabinet members of President, who happens to be the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo (SAN) has affirmed that President Buhari does not have the power to release Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), who is currently facing treason charges at the Federal High Court, Abuja.
It will be recalled some days ago that some prominent Igbo leaders led by the First Republic former Aviation Minister, Chief Mbazulike Amaechi, had visited President Buhari at Aso Villa, where they requested the president to release Kanu who was intercepted in Kenya in June.
The president has no power to release him. Is he in the judiciary? On the one hand, people say there should be independence of the judiciary, on the other hand, they are saying the president should intervene in the judicial process. So, what do Nigerians want?
“On the other hand, when there is a small indication that executive is interfering in judicial matters, the whole country will go up in flames because at that point, they will feel that because of their political interest, the president is trying to intervene and promote one political interest over another.
“Now, being a respecter for the rule of law, the president has allowed the judicial process to go on and yet, people are still complaining and going to him to interfere. I don’t understand. There is a matter in court. You can’t tell the president to go and intervene in the judicial process”.
