Mr Adams Oshiomhole, All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, has described as injustice, the Supreme Court judgement, which upturned the party’s electoral victory in Zamfara on grounds of technicality.
He stated this while speaking with newsmen at the party’s national Secretariat in Abuja on Monday, in reaction to the development after the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) meeting.
Recall that the Supreme Court recently voided all the APC votes in Zamfara state thus leading to the PDP which had taken second place in the votes in Zamfara becoming the winner of the election.
Oshiomhole described the rulling by the Supreme Court as the imposition of total strangers in place of the people’s choice.
Oshiomhole said “There is something I learnt from Lord Denning, a famous British Supreme Court Justice, that the law has to be interpreted taken into account the intention of the lawmakers, and try to deliver justice in its purest form.
“So, there is no justice when on grounds of technicalities, you impose on the people of Zamfara, not just a man or a woman, but a whole party candidates from Governor to Senate and others that they didn’t elect.
“If the court thought we were wrong, justice would have demanded that we repeat, but you can not use technicalities because we are in a democracy.
“There is nothing democratic when the court imposing strangers to govern a people, but we understand that after the Supreme Court, we can only take our case to the Court of God, to that extent we must obey the Court,”.
