FG Must Stop Using Force On Agitators – Prof. Akinterinwa

Ex Director-General of the Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Prof Bola Akinterinwa has come out to say that Abubakar Malami acted very unlearned during the recent extradition of Nnamdi Kanu.

He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he doesn’t understand how Malami can be a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and claim to not know what international diplomatic practice is all about and what is at stake.

He added that the Federal Government should stop the use of force on agitators and explore amicable resolutions.

His words, “The problem is not as simple as people would have us believe. It is most unfortunate that the very knowledgeable lawyers, who are said to be learned, the Attorney General of the Federation, Malami himself is said to be learned but the problem I always have is when you are learned and we cannot see the outcome of the extent to which one is learned for political reasons.”

“You cannot be a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and claim not to know what international diplomatic practice is all about. What is at stake, the encounter that we have resulting from the order of the Nigerian Government and the counter-order of the British government is what we found ourselves because the British are now saying that you cannot try to embarrass a citizen of the United Kingdom.”

He added, “There must be the need to control the dictatorial blood flowing in Muhammadu (Buhari) under a democratic setting.”

“When I was calling for a learned, responsible Attorney General of Nigeria, you don’t interpret international treaties on a lighter mode, you must look at the implications. The sovereignty of Nigeria doesn’t extend beyond its international frontiers, considering the immediate Francophone neighbours.”

“To have gone beyond Nigeria’s limited countries is an exaggeration. And for Kenya claiming not to know, its own international responsibility will be called to question because the country has the responsibility to protect all foreigners travelling to and travelling out of Kenya.”
