To Grant Pardon To Yahoo Boys, 419ers And Drug Peddlers

said presidential pardons would be granted to drug peddlers, persons convicted of obtaining money under false pretenses and certain categories of prisoners who have shown remorse while in confinement.

Speaking during his visit to prisons in the North-East and North-Central zones, vice-chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Prerogative of Mercy, William Alo,  said President Buhari was empowered by his statutory responsibilities and backed by Section 175 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) to accept, reject and grant pardons to inmates of Nigerian prisons.

He said;

“Presidential pardons will be granted to inmates who committed federal offences such as drug peddling, vandalisation of public property, obtaining by tricks, otherwise known as , and other related offences, if proved that they are remorseful of their actions and meet the committee criteria.”
