‘I don’t interfere with the judiciary’, SERAP disagrees with Buhari over statement On Nnamdi Kanu’s Case

Following his statement that he does not interfere with the judiciary, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), Thursday disagreed with President Muhammadu Buhari, reeling out situations and events where Mr President had interfered in the judicial system.

Yesterday, Buhari appeared on Channels Television to speak on issues militating against the development and growth of the country.

When asked if he would release Kanu, Mr President said: “We cannot release Nnamdi Kanu. His case is for the judiciary. One of the things I promised myself is never to interfere with the judiciary. I have given him the opportunity to defend himself.

Kanu has been insulting us. He has been given incorrect figures and comments against us. He needs to account for what he did.

Reacting to the above statement SERAP accused Buhari of interfering with the judiciary, noting that his administration has implicitly interfered by his persistent failure to obey several court judgments obtained by SERAP.
