President Muhammadu Buhari has been said to have shirked in the primary duty of government, which is to protect Nigerians from the wanton destruction of their lives. This was according to Prof Chidi Odinkalu, the former Chairman, Governing Council of the National Human Rights Commission and a Senior team member of Open Society Justice Initiative, who has been quite vocal about political prisoners in the present government.

He was talking in the #ConversationswithAbangMercy show on a wide range of topics including political prisoners, free speech and the killings in the Middle belt and the rest of the country.
