PDP Chieftain Reveals Why Buhari Released Dasuki



The Chairman of the Jigawa State Peoples Democratic Party Congress, Umar Ardo, on Tuesday, noted that President Muhammadu Buhari did not release the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki because he believed in the rule of law.

Recall that Dasuki and former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore were released on 24 December 2019 after the Attorney General ordered their release on bail.

Ardo, while speaking with newsmen in Dutse, after the Congress claimed that President Buhari doesn’t believe in the rule of law.

He further stated that the President was directed by three courts, including the West African Parliament court, but he failed to obey the judgement.

He said Dasuki only benefited from foreign pressures over the arrest and detention of Sowore.

“But because of the pressure from two senators from the United States of America who questioned him over the detention of Sowore.”

“So for two senators to speak, he quickly released them because he couldn’t release him and allow Dasuki, so Sambo Dasuki benefited from it.”

“Secondly, the rule of law says the Senate must confirm a candidate before he is appointed. Was Ibrahim Magu confirmed by senators before he was appointed as acting chairman of the EFCC? So which rule of law does Buhari believe in,” Ardo questioned.
