The Presidency on Thursday reacted to the claims that a Nigerian pharmacist, Solomon Akuma, was remanded in prison for criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to SaharaReporters, Solomon has been in detention for over a year for criticising Buhari.
Solomon was denied bail when he appeared in court on Wednesday, March 24th.
Presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, while reacting to the report, said contrary to the claim, Solomon was arraigned in court for saying he would pay an assassin to kill President Buhari and his former Chief of Staff.
He wrote: “For criticizing Buhari? No, a few 100s criticize the President on daily, nothing has ever happened to them.”
“For Akuma, it is not an issue of criticism, he publicly said that he will pay an assassin to kill the President and late CoS. We all ought to know, there is a price for that.”
Governor Abubakar while speaking on Channels TV on Wednesday said the President has recorded a lot of achievements.
