Nigeria Is Slowly Returning To 1984, Prepare For Worse – Governor Fayose

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state commented on the tone of President Muhammadu Buhari during  in the section that concerned some of the ‘controversial’ prisoners Nigeria has at the moment. He also called on international organisations to focus their attention on human rights abuses and contempt for the rule of law in the country come 2016.

“I warned several times that those that were promoting this lion would end up in its belly. Having heard from the President himself declaring Dasuki and Nnamdi Kanu guilty even before trial, Nigerians should be prepared for a return of the 1984 experience in which Buhari’s military tribunal sentenced people to jail terms ranging from 21 to 300 years, such that the Nigerian Bar Association had to boycott the tribunal,” Fayose was quoted by TheGuardian.


The governor mentioned he was not really surprised that Buhari justified the disobedience of court orders by the Department of State Security (DSS). In the statement, Lere Olayinka, Fayose’s special assistant on public communications and new media, he also noted that this was not the first time the president was displaying the ‘hallmark of a dictator’.

This Wednesday President Buhari could not dodge answering the questions about the further fate of Nnamdi Kanu and Sambo Dasuki. Both of them have been granted bail, the order that has been ignored by the DSS.

The president explained that Nigerians simply did not know all the horrible details on the crimes committed by the two. Therefore, Kanu and Dasuki simply do not deserve being released on bail. Buhari do not want to see them ‘relaxing in London’.
