Former factional Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kano, Alhaji Hussaini Mairiga has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari to respect of the rule of law following his alleged disobedience of several court injunctions asking for the release of former NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd).
Mairiga called on Buhari to have the fear of God, as well as obey several court orders and release Dasuki.
Speaking yesterday, Mairiga said: ”Buhari should release Dasuki I am calling on Buhari to please release Dasuki to enable him join his family members, who have been separated from him, over four years ago.”
Mairiga, who is an APC Chieftain in Kano, claimed that President Buhari on some occasions had disagreement with the First Lady, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, which the couple debated on and eventually settled within a few days.
He therefore called on Buhari to sink whatever differences he had with Dasuki and release him, like he often amicably resolves his differences with the First Lady.
”I am therefore calling on President Buhari to please, and please allow Dasuki to go home and have peace, with members of immediate family.
Court has since granted him bail and it is now left for President Buhari to obey court order and release him. It should be recalled that Sambo Dasuki distributed the money given to him by former President Jonathan to the appropriate persons, without removing any kobo, because Sambo Dasuki is an honest person.’
”If Buhari fails to release Dasuki in accordance to court order, it is injustice, which Allah will not allow him, as Allah is for justice, fairness and that of Love.
“Buhari and his wife, Aisha are always having their differences but are still together, while Dasuki’s family members are in a traumatic condition, without happiness. But why must Sambo continue to be in detention in defiance of a subsisting court order for his release.?”
Mairiga further stated that Buhari is not in charge of governance but a cabal that are allegedly ruling the country, adding that based on the unwholesome trend, Aisha often challenges the President on the issue of cabal ruling the country, instead of Buhari.
On the President’s second coming, Mairiga said he is praying to Allah for Buhari to right all the wrongs of his first tenure, as he has ascended to the next level.
Also, Mairaga condemned the recent order by President Buhari to arrest and jail parents, who refused to enroll their children in school, arguing that “how can a parent, who has no money to feed send his children to school?
”For such an order to come into force, Buhari should lead by example by sending his children to public schools, alongside that of his cabinet members, instead of sending them abroad for studies.”
