Fayose Hails Ishaku’s Victory, says “Supreme Court restoring Nigerians confidence in judiciary”

fayoseEkiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has hailed the Supreme Court judgment, affirming the election of Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State, saying he was happy that the country apex court has restored the confidence of Nigerians in the judiciary and that those who believed they could circumvent the electoral verdict of the people of
Taraba State were put to shame.

Governor Fayose, who described the judgment as “justice properly served” reminded Nigerians of his predictions published on December 22, 2015 in which he said categorically that Governor Ishaku will be victorious at the Appeal Court and Supreme Court.

According to his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose cautioned members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), especially the National Chairman, Chief Odigie Oyegun over their disparaging comments against the judiciary as a result of the party’s failure to unseat the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors of Rivers and Akwa Ibom States.

He called on the judiciary to further establish its independence, saying; “The only body that can save democracy and sustain the rights of Nigerians in the face of tyranny is the judiciary and our judges must stand firm now so that those who truncated democracy in Nigeria through military coup will not return the country to dictatorship
under democratic governance.”

The governor said labeling the judiciary as corrupt because of Supreme Court judgments on the dispute over the governorship elections in Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Abia, Delta, Ebonyi and other states that PDP won was the height of hypocrisy by the APC, adding that the same way the Supreme Court dismissed the use of card readers on the cases won by PDP governors was the way the court dismissed card readers in the cases won by APC governors.

While congratulating Governor Ishaku, Governor Fayose urged him to“remain with the people of Taraba State and never get bothered by the antics of those whose only interest is to circumvent the verdict of the people.”
