While thanking God for the President’s return in good health, which he said was all at the mercy of God, and particularly as a result of the prayers of Nigerians who have made this to happen, Fayose said “It is therefore incumbent on you to show mercy on Nnamdi Kanu and Sambo Dasuki, who have been granted bail already by courts of competent jurisdiction, and such other Nigerians that are suffering unjust, punitive, illegal, and unconstitutional incarceration under this administration.

“Allow all those who have been granted bail by the court to enjoy their bail while their trial continues. This is the right, just, and merciful thing to do, especially now that your good self is looking up to God for mercy.

“Those of us in authority must not be seen to be using our God-given powers to oppress the citizens placed under our care. The citizens’ fundamental human rights must not be taken away. “In the spirit of Nigerians praying for your full and quick recovery, kindly show mercy as it will only cost you humility to show mercy to those people who deserve it.”
