The People’s Democratic Party PDP has lambasted the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, over attempts to politicize the Supreme Court’s verdicts on the Imo state governorship election despite evident consensus by the generality of Nigerians for a review.
The party has also accused the APC of conniving with Justice Mohammed Tanko-led Supreme Court in perverting justice in the Imo governorship election judgment, including heinous plots by APC to use the court to take over other PDP controlled states which involve Bauchi, Sokoto, Adamawa, and Benue.
Further revelations on why Oshiomhole has suddenly become the mouthpiece of the Supreme Court were revealed and described as his desperate bid to divert public attention from the perversion of justice by the Supreme Court in favour of APC.
“Oshiomohole’s desperation to blur public agitation against the injustice further confirms that APC is in league with Justice Mohammed Tanko-led Supreme Court in perverting justice in the Imo governorship election judgment as well as the heinous plots to use the court to take over other PDP-controlled states of Bauchi, Sokoto, Adamawa, and Benue.
“We have reliable information that certain Justices of the Court have been blaming APC leaders and the Presidency for compromising and dragging them into the disgraceful plots; the reason Oshiomhole now desperately seeks to politicize the issue and divert public attention as a stop-gap measure.
“This attempt is indeed dead on arrival as the PDP, standing with the generality of Nigerians and lovers of democracy all over the world, will not relent in mobilizing the citizens in pursuit of an end to this and many other injustices that pervade our nation presently.
“Of course, Oshiomhole and Justice Tanko Mohammed are reminded that, as stated by Thomas Jefferson, “When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty”.
“Nothing, not even the ranting of a character like Adams Oshiomhole, can stop over 180 million Nigerians from speaking out against injustice particularly at the Supreme Court, as an injustice to one is an injustice to all.
“It is however not surprising that the discredited Chairman of the APC could only resort to hauling insults instead of addressing the issues.
“Apparently, Oshiomhole thinks that by championing injustice and promoting impunity in his party and its government, he will escape his journey to jail for allegedly looting billions of naira belonging to Edo state when he was governor.
