Executive Order, Buhari Bans 50 Nigerians (Including A Dead Man), From Traveling Abroad

As 2019 elections draws near, and with stiff competition from the rival PDP party, the President Buhari administration is doing all it can to ensure that Nigerians feel its impact, as this will be a key component in the voting decisions of Nigerian come 2019.

On Saturday President Muhammadu Buhari, in a bid to strengthen the fight against corruption gave an Executive Order to the DG, Nigerian Immigration Services and other Security Agencies, banning 50 high profile Nigerians from ‘escaping’ to abroad over corruption charges.

The order states that these 50 politicians are worth over N50 Million Naira, and are subject of corruption investigation and litigation. The twist is that among the list of banned people is Late Justice of Enugu State, Innocent Umezulike, who died in London on June 26, 2018 and was buried over a month ago.

In an expose by international journalist George Elijah Otumu, tagged ‘Presidential Intelligence Report Busted’, he disclosed that the names of Atiku bubarkar, Dino Melaye, Olusegun Obasanjo, Ayo Fayose, Gbenga Daniel and other PDP big wigs, was in the list.

“The presidency intends to use these ban to instil fear, and discredit these politicians ahead of the 2019 elections”, a police source said, according to Otumu. “The Presidency chose not to release their names openly because it would cause lawlessness and destabilise the polity”.

According to Garba Shehu, SSA to the president on Media and Publicity “Nigeria Immigration Service and other security agencies, have placed no fewer than 50 high profile persons directly affected by E06 on watch-list, and restricted them from leaving the country pending the determination of their cases”.

But, Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to Nigeria President on Media and Publicity said “I have no information on this allegation”.

However, the Nation newspaper was able to have access to the full list, and the information there proved George Otumu’s claims wrong, as neither Atiku or Obasanjo’s names are there.

Instead, the names there are Dasuki, Amosu, Akala, Kalu, Badeh, Daniel, Amosu, Yuguda, Justice Innocent Azubuike Umezulike (a dead man), and 42 others. The watch-list and restriction were put in place pending the conclusion of the cases against those affected.

Also on the watch list seen last night by The Nation are: ex-governors Saminu Turaki (Jigawa), Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), Adebayo Alao-Akala (Oyo), Gabriel Suswam (Benue), Rasheed Ladoja (Oyo), Orji Uzor Kalu (Abia), Danjuma Goje (Gombe), Attahiru Bafarawa (Sokoto), Muazu Babangida Aliyu (Niger); Chimaroke Nnamani (Enugu); Sule Lamido (Jigawa); Gbenga Daniel (Ogun); and Ibrahim Shehu Shema (Katsina).

The ex-ministers are Nenadi Usman, Bashir Yuguda, Jumoke Akinjide; Bala Mohammed; Abba Moro; Femi Fani-Kayode; and Ahmadu Fintiri. Others include a former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh; ex- Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral A. D. Jibrin; a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Mohammed Dikko Umar; a former Inspector-General of Police, Sunday Ehindero; and a former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Adesola Amosu; Chairman Emeritus of AIT/ Raypower, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi; Waripamowei Dudafa (a former Special Assistant (Domestic) to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan); a former Chief Judge of Enugu State, Justice Innocent Umezulike; a former judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Rita Ofili-Ajumogobia;

Also on the list are a former National Publicity Secretary of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh; Chief Jide Omokore; Ricky Tarfa; and Dele Belgore (SAN).

A top government official, who spoke in confidence, said there is no cause for alarm on E06. The source said: “The ban is not different from the conditions given by the court in granting these accused persons bail. The E06 is like a codification of steps to prevent those on trial for alleged corrupt practices from tampering with assets. Some of these accused persons used to go to court for permission before they can travel out of the country.

The E06 is not a new thing but instead of all agencies working at cross-purposes, a list was generated and backed with the Executive Order. Some of those on trial, especially the Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) had been selling their assets. What will they return after being convicted?”

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the travel ban outright, dismissing it as an attempt by the Buhari administration to foist full-blown fascism on the country.

Spokesman for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the travel restriction was illegal, draconian and targeted at members of opposition parties, perceived political enemies of President Muhammadu Buhari, well-meaning Nigerians, including members of the business community, religious leaders, former political leaders and traditional rulers, who are perceived to be averse to the President’s re-election bid.

He said: “We hope this is not a ploy to harm certain eminent Nigerians on the claims of resisting travel restrictions. The whole world can now see how fascism is fast taking over our democracy and judicial system and how the Buhari administration, by fiat, has directly ordered that citizens be secretly trailed, their movements and financial transactions restricted by government agencies, without recourse to due process of the law”.
