The leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, Shaikh Ibraheem Zakzaky has been listed among the top 100 persons that are shaping the political scene of the country. YNaija's editor, Alexander Onukwue said it is important to mention these people as we enter a new tenure.

The list which was published on www.ynaija.com said, "El zakzaky, 66, has been a regular tenant at Nigerian prisons since the 1980s. Not many know a lot about his present status other than that his members embarrassed the Chief of Army staff during a parade in 2015. Determined to keep him away for as long as possible, court orders demanding El zakzaky’s release have been ignored by the Government. The cleric’s situation raises questions as to how a Government could legitimately be committed to the rule of law while simultaneously flouting justice."

Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) brave army tanks and direct gunfire for Ibrahim El Zakzaky to regain his freedom. In at least two occasions over a six month period, the Nigerian Army’s preferred mode of engaging the protesters incurred international criticism and condemnation. For the Buhari government, El zakzaky’s cause is anathema to the existence of the Nigerian state and invoking questionable interpretations of National Security concerns, have held in without the possibility of release in sight.

But constraints on freedom of movement have not impaired El zakzaky’s footprint on his group. This Ramadan, some families and individuals have received foodstuff from the cleric, ensuring that goodwill and motivation remains high to keep “Free El zakzaky” banners waving in the face of official antagonism. El zakzaky has already lost six of his nine children in the cause of the Army’s clampdown on his group’s activities, the first happening under the Jonathan administration. The cleric’s public statements profess commitment to non-violent confrontation, a distinguishing feature that sustains the international human rights community’s demand for the Government to restore his freedom," the statement concluded.

Other figures that are on the list are Atiku Abubakar, Dino Melaye, Wole Soyinka, Aisha Buhari, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Femi Falana, Adams Oshiomhole, Godwin Emiefele, Muhammad Sunusi II, Kadaria Ahmed among others.
