Taraba Tribunal Judgment; Fayose kicks, cries to Supreme Court
By; OLADELE ADEDAYO, Ado-Ekiti
Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose has called on the Supreme Court to save the country from impending anarchy as he described the tribunal judgment sacking the State Governor, Darius Ishaku as a ridiculous political judgment that can never stand before men of good conscience and God.
Fayose who expressed worry over the Judgement, alleged 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).
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?
“Is it not being manifested in this President Muhammadu 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 judgment 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, Fayose said “If everybody is persecuted and intimidated to submission, I will remain resolute in my resolve to always say the truth before men and God.”
