I’ve not disobeyed court order or interfer in the work of judiciary — Buhari

Muhammadu Buhari, said he had not disobeyed a court order or interfered with the work of the judiciary since 2015, when he became President of Nigeria.

The president said this Friday at State House Abuja during a meeting with Igbo leaders who met with him to demand the unconditional release of the detained leader of the indigenous people of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

Buhari who responded to the Igbo rulers in a swift manner, said their demand runs contrary to the doctrine of separation of powers between the Executive and Judiciary, but promised to consider it.

“In the last six years, since I became President, nobody would say I have confronted or interfered in the work of the Judiciary. God has spared you, and given you a clear head at this age, with a very sharp memory. A lot of people half your age are confused already. But the demand you made is heavy. I will consider it,” he told First Republic parliamentarian and Minister of Aviation, Mbazulike Amaechi who led the Igbo leaders to meet him.

Stressing his policy of non-interference with the Judiciary, Buhari said, “I said the best thing was to subject him to the system. Let him make his case in court, instead of giving very negative impressions of the country from the outside. I feel it’s even a favour to give him that opportunity.”
