“As far as our judicial system is concerned, bail is at the discretion of the court no matter the gravity of the offense, if Buhari is not satisfied with the courts decisions, let him order the prosecuting agencies to file an appeal against the verdicts.

“It is not in his position to decide who to be granted bail and who not to be granted bail, which is the exclusive function of the judiciary. He should be guided with the principles of separation of power enshrined in the Constitution, 1999 (as amended).

“His postures clearly showed that he has no respect for the constitution. His answer to the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB’s protests in the South East is provocative, scornful and it smacks of total disregard to the provisions of the constitution which seeks to balance the federal appointments among the six geopolitical zones.


“Mr. President cannot expect the Igbo to feel being part of his government when he denied them  sensitive positions in his government in gross violation of the Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) particularly under section 14 of the Constitution.

“President Buhari’s first media chat is disappointing. It brings to mind misery and subjugation of popular will particularly his resolved to be a judge in the anti corruption war.

“Those accused of corruption, particularly some select people, have already been convicted by Mr President. He is now exercising the functions of the judiciary by passing an executive judgment on some alleged corrupt individuals standing trial.


“There is no law in Nigeria that denies former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki and anybody standing corruption trial bail. His media chat in all, gives no hope in sight to the growing economic challenges the country is facing as he failed to answer so many critical questions.

“The only good thing we can get from the chat is his condemnation of the impending financial recklessness in National Assembly although he failed to tell Nigerians the truth about the alleged N18 billion he is planning to service the Villa in 2016 in the face of the growing hardship in the land,” the statement read.

Meanwhile, Uchechi Okwu-Kanu, , stating that she believes he is a prisoner of conscience.
