A former minister for aviation, Femi Fani Kayode, has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for securing the release of the Nigerian lady, Zainab Aliyu, who was due for execution in Saudi Arabia for a crime she never committed.
The Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) chieftain who spoke through his Twitter handle said Buhari made him proud as a Nigerian by the first time in four years by securing her release.
Aliyu Zainab was found innocent after investigations showed that some drug cartel operating within the Nigerian airport planted the hard drug found on her in her luggage.
Securing the release of Zainab from execution in a Saudi prison is a great achievement by @MBuhari.She was due to be executed for a crime she never committed.Buhari saved her life by intervening and for the first time in 4 years I am proud to be a Nigerian! Welcome home Zainab!
