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”.
