Taraba Tribunal Judgment Can’t Stand Before Men And God, Says Fayose

Although we are headquartered in Washington D.C. USA, our reporters and editors are working around the globe to cover what you care about. We invite you to donate to our fundraiser to help us keep our quality news free and available for all.

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, on Saturday, described the tribunal judgement sacking the Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku, as a ridiculous political judgement that can never stand before men of good conscience and God.

Governor Fayose said there is a conspiracy by the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government and a section of the judiciary against the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and 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 the conduct of the PDP primary that produced Governor Ishaku in Abuja an issue when the tribunal itself sat in Abuja.

“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 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.”
