You cannot insist on due process for Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu and deny it to Abba Kyari: Femi Fani Kayode to President Buhari lead Government
Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode in a post he shared through his social media handle has stood against Abba Kyari’s for being corrupt and possible extradition to the United States of America following his indictment in Hushpuppi’s fraud case in the US.
According to the former Aviation Minister, you cannot be selective in the application of Justice, in other words, what is good the goose is also good for the gander if people are asking for due process in the case of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Igboho the same process should be followed for Abba Kyari.
In his voice, He write via his latest social media post:
”We have insisted on due process and the presentation of hard evidence before my friend and brother Sunday Igboho can be extradited from Cotonou to Nigeria.
We have condemned the illegal manner in which the Kenyan authorities kidnapped Nnamdi Kanu and returned him to Nigeria with out due process with high leave of human right abuses
Those that are complaining about us asking for due process and insisting on the presentation of hard evidence before a court of law before Abba Kyari can be extradited to America are myopic and naïve, because you cannot insist on due process for Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu and deny it to Abba Kyari.
You cannot be selective in your application of justice.
You cannot have it both ways: you either believe in the rule of law or you do not. You either believe in due process, fairness, equity, and justice or you do not, there is no two ways to it, we do understand the dance even when the music your are playing isn’t audible to the ears, we still feel the injustice
We stood up for Allen Onyeama of Air Peace during his saga, when the Americans wanted his head. In the end, he was vindicated as there was no hard evidence against him and we discovered that the whole thing was a conspiracy to destroy him and take over his business, how myopic some human heart is. A business that is striving with tens to hundred employees, someone or group of people just wake up one day and conspire to end Air Peace and create more unemployment to Africans
Why should we not accord Abba the same benefit of the doubt or protection gave the fact that he is also a Nigerian, a serving military officer who have gave he has in servicing the Nation Nigeria, or is it that some Nigerians are more equal than others? more important that others if I may ask
The fact that Abba is a policeman or a northern Muslim does not mean we should feed him to the dogs. The fact that he was in SARS Official does not mean we should crucify him.
Resigning our sovereignty to the Americans and acting as if they are God by considering one of our own guilty simply because they have indicted him or wish to investigate him is utterly shameful.
I accord the same presumption of innocence unless and until proven guilty by a court of law to Abba as I do to Sunday and Nnamdi.
I refuse to apply the rules and the law selectively. I refuse to allow my emotions to becloud my better judgment.
I refuse to associate myself with any witch hunt or to be infected by a herd and lynch mob mentality.
This is because I have been a victim of such myself many times in the past and I know what it is like, i know how it feel
We are all equal before the law and we must not apply it selectively or on a regional, religious, or ethnic basis.
It is Sunday, Abba and Nnamdi today: it could be you tomorrow. And when that happens the only thing left to protect you from injustice are God and the law, we pray we never fall prey in the hands of our enemies
Moral of the tale: always be cautious before you condemn and assume guilt and always insist on hearing the other side of the story and seeing the evidence before you accept the assertions and allegations of either the state or an individual as being true and valid.
There is nothing more grievous before God than to send an innocent man to the gallows or to wrongly accuse the innocent and it comes with curses.” Harnie Gold, reporting from Afri NOTES, have your say on this ”You cannot insist on due process for Ignoho and Nnamdi Kanu and deny it to Abba Kyari Femi Fani Kayode” by dropping your comment using the comment box section
