Presidency Lied, Buhari Invited To ICC For Questioning Over Human Rights Abuses In Nigeria – PDP

On July 17, 2018 18 Comments

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said the Presidency lied on President Muhammadu Buhari’s invitation to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The PDP in a statement on Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said contrary to effort by the Presidency to present the invitation as positive for the Buhari Presidency, the administration has a lot of questions to answer.

“What the Presidency seeks to hide from Nigerians is that the ICC Rome Statute deals directly with critical issues of crime against humanity, which is already prevalent in Nigeria under President Buhari’s watch,” the party said.

The PDP said the fact that President Buhari is the only President invited to the event showed that the world is alarmed by the spate of blood-letting, extra-judicial executions, illegal arrests, arbitrary detention and torture going on in Nigeria.

“The party therefore calls on the ICC to take President Buhari to task on the documented abuse of human rights in Nigeria, particularly, the US Department of State 2017 Human Right Report, which catalogued issues of extrajudicial and arbitrary killings; disappearances and arbitrary detentions and torture, particularly in detention facilities in Nigeria under this administration,” the PDP added.‎

The party asked President Buhari to report and defend himself to the ICC over “documented human right abuses, crime against humanity and killings in Nigeria” under his watch.

    Is the world ganging up against Nigeria or what? What are they expecting Buhari will offer that will be of benefit to humanity. If the international agencies see Buhari government as an example to imitate then Armageddon is very close and UN and the ICC are very dangerous tools of the anarchist movement. This is a conspiracy of the highest order, possibly a gathering of gun runners who want to promote terror so as to get buyers for their weapons of mass destruction. May God save humanity.

    Buhari-led administration has many petitions against it at the ICC and I wonder why the ICC will invite Buhari to come just address them?

    Now, are they inviting him so that they can tap from his technocratic knowledge and wisdom or from disciplined and robust administrative skill the world have seen?

    If such were the matter then I believe his address there will expose him to many questions that will trigger investigations and prosecution of all the atrocities of this luciferian administration of Buhari.

    Let’s watch fold our hands and see whether there are more to this trip to ICC than meet the eyes.

    This is an insult to the intelligence of Nigerians for somebody to think that the president of a country will be summoned by ICC(Which has no real authority over any country)for questioning.
