Human Rights Abuses Worse Under Buhari Than Under Abacha – PDP


The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says denials of human rights under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari are more terrible than under the military regime of late General Sani Abacha.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said on Wednesday while responding to a report named ‘2020 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices,’ delivered by the US Department of State on Tuesday.

Ologbondiyan cheered the US government for the report, saying that each Nigerian realizes that the current administration is guilty of rights abuses.

He said, “In all honesty, every Nigerian knows that the government of President Muhammadu Buhari is guilty of many abuses of human rights.

“For instance, the APC is claiming that it is encouraging women participation in politics,  whereas, we have had situations where women who are participating in politics have gone through life-scaring situations, including being killed.

“Another example is that the right to protest is vehemently being destroyed by the government of this country going by what we witnessed in Lekki and going by what has been going on the streets of Abuja in respect of protests.

“In totality, the Buhari administration has abused rights in a propensity that even under the military, particularly under General Abacha, we did not witness.”
