“Ask Buhari Why He Jailed American Citizen 95 Years” – Northern Leader Urges Trump

Secretary of Northern Leaders and Stakeholders Assembly, Dr. Umar Ardo, has tasked United States President, Donald Trump to ask President Muhammadu Buhari while he jailed an American citizen for 95 years in 1984 while he was Nigerian military Head of State.

Ardo, a former ally of ex-Vice President, Atiku Abubakar alleged that the Buhari-led military regime jailed Mahmet Ben Chembi without any evidence against her, in 1984.

He alleged that President Buhari was not knew to taking extra judicial means of dealing with perceived enemies even when there were no evidence against them.

Ardo told journalists on Sunday that he was not surprised that the President was reluctant in obeying court orders even as he questioned President Buhari’s democratic credentials.

According to him, the American lady merely came to do legitimate business in Nigeria when he was arrested by the then regime of Buhari.

He said: “There was this case of the wealthy American lady, Mahmet Ben Chembi, who brought in her $17 million from the US to invest in plumbing in the building of Abuja, but was framed of defrauding the Nigerian State and taken to Buhari’s Military Tribunal and jailed for 95 years without a shred of evidence adduced against her by the government.

“On top of it, she was fined N500 million. It was the regime of another military dictator, Ibrahim Babangida that set up a Judicial Review Panel that reviewed the case and released her from jail.

“President Donald Trump should ask his guest, President Muhammadu Buhari while he did that to his (Trump ) citizen.

“There was also the case of a wealthy Nigerian woman resident in Saudi Arabia who returned to the country and was arrested on arrival at Kano airport, taken to tribunal and jailed 10 years for being in possession of N600. She had a 5-year old daughter who was sent to jail along with her. ”

He regretted that Buhari’s antecedents did not portray him as a leader that could be trusted with another four years in office.

Because of this, he said the country must look for a new leader in 2019 who he said would show love to Nigerians regardless of their ethnicity and political affiliations.

He also said it would be wrong to assume that the Buhari regime is corruption -free, saying the truth about its activities would be unveiled after leaving office.

He continued: “Having known all these about Buhari, and many, many more of such, I came to the inevitable conclusion that a person like that cannot make a good leader.

“It is natural therefore for reasonable people to oppose such a leadership and look out for an alternative. This is exactly what is going on in Nigeria today.

“In fact, such frivolous and unfounded accusations inundating Buhari’s past leadership has brought to serious question the current accusations against members of the past regime.

“No one should blame me if I question the truthfulness of the current exercise. After all, it is only after leaving office that the truth of one’s tenure is revealed.

“For as far as I am concerned, the current so-called looters’ list is nothing more than names of the likes of Ben Chembi. If the man can do it then, why can’t he do it now?

“I know those former leaders have their blames, but the Buhari leadership has the most blame.”

Ardo said that it would be better for President Buhari to listen to former leaders who he said had advised him against running for a second term.

“I believe those who advised him not to run are being kind to him and are lovers of this country because they know he has lost the support of majority of Nigerians and if he re-contests and wants to use incumbency to force himself back to office, he will only plunge the country into unfathomable crises that will not be in the interest of anyone,” he added.
