Former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has commended the Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, for directing the immediate release of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) and the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowere from custody.
Ekweremadu described Malami’s action as “the best public relations job for the President Muhammadu Buhari government in 2019”, noting that the move would go a long way in rebuilding the confidence of Nigerians and the international community in the nation’s democracy.
“Although we should never have travelled this road in the first place, the intervention of the Attorney-General of the Federation and the directive for the immediate release of Sambo Dasuki and Omoyele Sowere come as a big relief for the nation’s democracy and will go a long way to restore confidence in the sanctity of the judiciary and its place as the last hope of the common man” he said.
He also commended members of the media and the civil society, who stood firm as bastions of the nation’s democracy.
