Mr. Garba Shehu, President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media, on Tuesday in a media chat with State House Correspondent, in Abuja, spoke on the president’s human rights records for the past two years.
According to him, Buhari had so far an impeccable human rights record and the president’s administration complies with courts decisions and orders.
“The human rights records of this administration are impeccable, there are unimpeachable. I think we should avoid speaking in general terms.
“The thing to do is to pin point specific cases to buttress assertions that people make and then we can tackle them.
“As we speak to you now, we are not aware that the administration of Muhammadu Buhari is in breach of the constitution of Nigeria with regards to the protection of the rights of Nigerians.
“Journalists in this country ought to bear testimony on this, there is no single journalist that has been expelled from his duty because he has reported or failed to report, there is no single journalist who is in government detention because they have expressed some views that the government does not like.’’
“I assure that if anybody tries to do otherwise the president will not allow him to get away with it.’’
