Presidency Mounting Pressure On S/Court To Give Bias Judgement In Benue, Adamawa, Others

Uche Secondus, the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has said the Presidency and the APC are pressurising the Supreme Court to rule in favour of the ruling party in Benue, Sokoto, Adamawa and Bauchi States.

The opposition party said the Supreme Court is being “arm-twisted” into ruling against them.

All four states are expecting final judgements from the apex court on Monday, as they contend over who the actual winners of the March 9th governorship election are.

Speaking at the National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the party, Secondus said;

“The ruling APC and the Federal Government, combining effectively with the Independent National Electoral Commission and some security agencies including military, took the electoral manipulation to the next level,” Secondus said.

“The National Working Committee has credible intelligence that the Presidency and the APC leadership are still arm-twisting the judiciary to ensure that they deliver to them  Sokoto, Benue, Bauchi and Adamawa while keeping  Kano, which we clearly won.

“We have demanded the seven justices that participated in the Imo judicial fraud recuse themselves from the remaining cases involving the PDP.”

Secondus accused the presidency of abandoning its duties to “take up issues” with the PDP.

“We know that the APC and President Buhari have taken our civility for weakness and inability to act,” he said.

“The Presidency has even abandoned governance  amidst  the myriads of challenges facing  the land and prefers to take  issue with us as main opposition party, a deliberate policy to divert attention from their inept leadership.”
