Taraba Judgement: Fayose calls for intervention of Supreme Court

Describes Judgement as ridiculous, which can’t stand before men, God

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has called on the Supreme Court to save the country from impending anarchy based on the the tribunal judgement sacking the Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku

Governor Fayose described the tribunal judgement as a ridiculous political judgement that can never stand before men of good conscience and God.

Governor Fayose, who maintained that there was a conspiracy by the All
Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government and a section of
the judiciary against the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), called on
the Supreme Court to save the country from impending anarchy.

In a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor wondered how a tribunal could make conduct of the PDP primary that produced Governor Ishaku in Abuja an issue when the tribunal itself sat in Abuja.

He said; “How does the emergence of party candidate, which is the clear internal business of the party and a pre-election matter concern
the APC and the Election Tribunal?
Isn’t it funny that it is no longer about election rigging, but
technicality of how PDP candidates emerged even when no one in the PDP
went to court to challenge how Governor Ishaku emerged as the PDP
governorship candidate?
If insecurity could make Taraba State Tribunal sit in Abuja and not
in Jalingo, how then can it be justified that the same tribunal that
sat in Abuja nullified the governor’s election because the primary
election that produced him too was held in Abuja?

Fayose explained further that, “is it not being manifested in this President Mohammadu Buhari led APC
government that what is good for some people may not be good for others even though we operate the same constitution?
To me and the teeming supporters of the PDP, this judgement is one
that must not be allowed to stand. It is a clear miscarriage of justice and we will seek redress from the court of men and the court of God.”

While reiterating his commitment to speaking the truth in the overall
interest of Nigerians, Governor Fayose said; “If everybody is persecuted and intimidated to submission, I will remain resolute in my resolved to always say the truth before men and God.”
