Falz Send a Strong Letter to President Buhari (Read)

Nigerian Popular Rapper Falz send a Strong Letter to the president of Nigeria Muhammed buhari.

According to the Letter;

His Excellency,
President Muhammadu Buhari G.C.F.R.,
Presidential Villa,
Aso Rock,
Abuja, FCT.
Dear Mr. President,
REQUEST FOR RECONSTITUTION OF THE GOVERNING COUNCIL OF THE
NATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION FOR THE DISCHARGE OF ITS
FUNCTIONS WITH RESPECT TO CASES OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS IN
NIGERIA

I hereby write to Your Excellency as regards the above topic.
It has been brought to my knowledge via a statement by your Special Adviser on Media and
Publicity, Femi Adeshina, that the Federal Government has accepted the 5-point request of the
ENDSARS protests presented by well-meaning Nigerian youths.
This statement went on to state that there would be an independent investigation Panel to look into
the violations of Human Rights by the defunct SARS and other segments of the Nigeria Police.
Quoting Mr Adeshina’s statement: “The Forum agrees to the setting up of this independent panel
by the National Human Rights Commission within the next one week”
It is pertinent to note that Scction 5 the National Human Rights Commission (Amendment) Act
2010 empowers the National Human Rights Commission itself to receive complaints and
investigate all alleged cases of human rights violations in Nigeria and make appropriate
recommendations to the President.
The detailed and concise provisions of this Section adequately empower the Human Rights
Commission to look into these cases by itself. The Commission need not set up another panel for
the exercise of its functions.
More importantly, the National Human Rights Commission ought to have a Governing Council
under Section 2 of the National Human Rights Commission (Amendment) Act consisting of the
following people:
(a)
a chairman who shall be a retired Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria or the Court of
Appeal or a retired judge of the High Court of a State;
(b) a representative each of the following Federal Ministries-
i) Justice; (i) Foreign Affairs; (iii) Internal Affairs;
(c)
three representatives of registered human rights organisations in Nigeria;
(d)
two legal practitioners who shall not have less than ten years post qualification experience;
(e)
three representatives of the media, at least, two of whom shall be from the private sector;

(f three other persons to represent a variety of interests; and (g) the executive secretary of the Commission.

As it stands now, the National Human Rights Commission has remained without the Governing Council since 2015 and still remains without it.

The unfortunate circumstance has led to the aggravation of human rights abuse. According to Section 7(3) of the National Human Rights Commission Act, the Executive Secretary of the Commission does not have the power to act without a Governing Council. In the light of the foregoing, I hereby call on Your Excellency to immediately reconstitute the Governing Council of the National Human Rights Commission and to do so publicly as well as transparently in order to restore the confidence of young Nigerians in your proposed police reform process.

Failure to do this would force young Nigerians to believe that the continuous refusal to re-constitute the Governing Council of the National Human Rights Commission is a deliberate attempt to mislead us into thinking genuine efforts are being made at reforming the Nigeria Police, when in truth the opposite is the case.

I am confident that Your Excellency will grant my humble request in order to guarantee the protection of the fundamental human rights of all Nigerians. Yours faithfully, Folarin “Falz” Falana
