Mark Begs China To Release Nigerian Prisoners by HenryQuest(m): 8:15am On Sep 19, 2013
Senate President David Mark has pleaded with Beijing to release 490 Nigerians languishing in Chinese prisons. He begged the Chinese leader, Mr. Zhang Dejiang to review the cases of  366 Nigerians in Chinese prisons, 120 awaiting trial and four already sentenced to death under the transfer of prisoners arrangement.Nigeria and China have pledged military co-operation especially in the training and retraining of  security personnel in tackling terrorism and disaster response capabilities.Under the arrangement, both nations would exchange programmes for military officers and students of Defence Colleges.
These were part of the high-points of the bilateral talks between Mark and President of the Chinese Parliament, Mr. Dejiang who also doubles as the Chairman of the National Peoples Congress (NPC) in Abuja yesterday.

Senator Mark had requested his guest to prevail on his government for assistance to Nigeria in the mass production of military and police hardware  as well as aircraft’s spare parts production centre in Nigeria. The Senate president also requested China to support Nigeria’s bid for the UN Security Council seat  as non- permanent member from 2015 and as a permanent member from Africa in an expanded UN Security Council.

Besides the  agreed exchange of parliamentary visits between the National Assembly and the Chinese parliament, Senator Mark demanded that China reciprocates Nigeria’s friendly visa regime by honouring Diplomatic Notes and simplifying visa procedures for Nigerians.

Although  the trade and commercial ties between both countries have increased with a deficit of N270 billion against Nigeria, Mark requested that the imbalance be addressed by encouraging Chinese government and industrialists to increase investments in the non-oil sector in Nigeria as well as offering duty waiver on Nigerian exports.

Mr. Dejiang noted that China runs a friendly administration and upholds the sanctity of the rule of law, but would table Mark’s requests before his home government for a possible review especially on those convicted on criminal offences. He promised co-operation with the government and people of Nigeria in all areas that would improve her economy and general welfare of the people .

Re: Mark Begs China To Release Nigerian Prisoners by Nobody: 9:33am On Sep 19, 2013
Hmm...

Me: So many Nigerian in different prisons all over the world...

My mind: But there are other aliens in foreign countries too...

Me: But it seems Nigerian population ranks highest in that aspect.

My mind: Hmm... So many causative factors...

Me: Yes... O... Such as faulty national foundation, lootocracy, unemployment etc.

My mind: You forgot to add little or no access to fund to start businesses, obsession with going abroad off the shore of Nigeria... Ignorance inclusive.

Me: If only all rich and influential christians will use their tithes every month to set at least one unemployed person up in different business within their capacity.

My mind: Even most of the pastors and GOs knows this but they won't instruct their sheep to do that lest they won't live flambouyant life styles.

Me: I'm so hungry... Gat to go for breakfast.

Beg or appeal?

What will be our bargain chip? Not just prisoners held for misdemeanor. We are talking about people on death row.

Hard call.

In as much as I laud Mark's step, I don't think is plea will change anything especially considering if most of those criminals committed grievous crimes.

It shocks me how prisoners/criminals in diaspora are regarded as babies over here. Sometimes, govt and dia officials even beg for outright release or pardon for convicted rapists, murderers, armed robbers and all what not. Why not let them dance to the music over there?
