10 questions Timi Frank wants German Chancellor Merkel to ask Buhari

'Their Change Agenda has failed. The #NextLevel Agenda is fraudulent'- Timi Frank

Former All Progressives Congress (APC), deputy national publicity secretary, Comrade Timi Frank, has listed 10 questions he would like the visiting German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, to confront President Muhammadu Buhari with.

Among the crucial questions Frank wants Merkel to ask Buhari when she visits Abuja is whether Buhari is a democrat or an authoritarian/dictatorial President?

He also wants her to ask him if he is fighting corruption or shielding alleged corrupt persons who now find the APC under his leadership a safe haven to escape prosecution?

He also asked the German leader to help prevail on the Buhari-led government to obey the rule of law and respect the fundamental human rights of citizens of Nigeria.

According to Frank, this plea became vital in order to save Nigeria’s democracy as well as to stem the growing tide of intimidation, harassment, intolerance and desperation by Buhari’s government ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The questions are:

1. Is Buhari a democrat or an authoritarian/dictatorial President?

2. Is Buhari fighting corruption or shielding alleged corrupt persons who now find the APC under his leadership a safe haven to escape prosecution?

3. Why is Buhari desperate to get Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki forcefully removed as President of the Senate – by hook or crook – through the invasion of the Senate by thugs and recent siege on the National Assembly by a section of the nation’s security apparatus.

4. Why is Buhari and APC trying to truncate democracy by refusing to prosecute those who have violated the sanctity of the parliament through the recent brazen invasion/siege on the National Assembly?

5. Why has Buhari not ensured the release of Leah Sharibu – the Dapchi school girl – who has continued to languish in captivity after others girls that were kidnapped together have since regained freedom through government’s direct intervention?

6. Why has Buhari kept the Leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), Sheik El-Zakzaky in detention for over three years despite several court rulings granting him bail?

7. Similarly, why has Buhari refused Col. Sambo Dasuki to go home after six court judgements, including the ECOWAS Court of Justice, that have granted him bail?

8. How can Buhari claim to champion an anti-corruption fight when the APC under his leadership continues to compromise the nation’s electoral process through open vote buying to win elections?

9. Why has Buhari continued to gag the press through arrests and long detentions as witnessed in the case of Jones Abiri – a Port Harcourt based journalist – who was detained without trial for two years and a Premium Times reporter, Samuel Ogundipe who was incarcerated for failing to disclose his sources to the police?

10. Why has Buhari refused to name murderous Fulani herdsmen as a terrorist organization just like he did to the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)?”

Frank, who is yet to publicly denounced his membership of the ruling APC added that should the tension and instability occasioned in the country by the dictatorial tendencies of Buhari’s administration not be curbed, bilateral or multilateral agreements entered into by the country will be nugatory abinitio without peace, political stability and social cohesion.
