President Buhari did not release Dasuki on respect for Rule of Law – PDP

The Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, has said that President Muhammad Buhari was forced by external factors to release the former National Security adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retired) from detention and not because of his believe in the rule of law.

The Chairman of the Jigawa State PDP Congress, Dr. Umar Ardo while responding to questions from newsmen in Dutse, after the Congress, said that President Muhammad Buhari doesn’t believe in the rule of law.

Ardo explained that 3 courts, including the West African Parliament court ordered the release of Sambo Dasuki but Buhari didn’t listen to them.

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,” he stated.

“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.
