Provide The Names Of Political Prisoners, Presidency Tells PDP by hisexcellency34: 10:11am On Aug 13
Temidayo Akinsuyi LAGOS – The Presidency at the weekend challenged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to provide the names of alleged political prisoners who were currently being unjustly detained by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

It would be recalled that Uche Secondus, the PDP National Chairman, had appealed to President Buhari to, as a matter of urgency, release all political detainees under the administration, saying the government, through its action, was stifling freedom of speech.

Secondus said, “We ask Mr. President, Mr. Buhari, to release political prisoners. It is not done in any political dispensation. What we are seeing today is as if we are in a military era. He should urgently release political prisoners and allow a political atmosphere and a country where there is freedom of speech.”

Urging the media to take the lead, Secondus said, “I want to call on journalists and media managers not to sit on the fence. They can’t just sit and watch the country sliding.

“They played major roles in the past, removing the country from the hands of the military. They have tempered with some among them.

“It is time for them to join hands with the good people of Nigeria to stand on the path of truth, on the path of democracy.

However, speaking on a political programme on Channels Television, Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity denied Secondus’ claim, saying there were no political prisoners under the current administration.

“The question we need to ask the PDP chairman is, does he have a name? Who are these political prisoners? Let him put up their names in the press and let us read about it. But from all we can see, there are no political detainees under President Buhari. None

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me. -- Anonymous

Listen friends, for those of you who laugh and jest thinking you are cool with all that is going on in Nigeria, let me remind you that you are making a very big mistake.

Your only hope and ability to survive in any given country or nation is LAW. When the rule of law and tenants of democracy is destroyed in any country where it is been practiced, a 'State of Nature' fills the vacuum. Where it is the strong against the weak and the fastest agaisnt the slower. A complete wildlife and state of anarchy.

Well, it's a challenge. Let Secondus provide the names.

If he does then he's sincere in his claim and we will all think of a way forward. Like all other prisoners, political imprisonment could be legal and could be illegal. So we need to see the names and look at each person's 'offense' before castigating the presidensy or not.

If he doesn't then he's a full-blown propagandist who should never be granted media presence again.

For now, I sit on the fence.

I rest my case.

Is Dasuki not a political prisoner? incarcerating someone against court order is political imprisonment. Yeye, APC instead of them to keep quiet and ignore the call they still have the guts to reply. Very silly set of people.

Are you saying Dasuki should be released? In Dasuki's case, honestly I will jubilate if the guy is giving a life sentence or made to face the firing squad.
For the bullion van mayestro, I believe when this administration is sent packing, his time to face the music will come too and no immunity will cover the unrighteous.
