Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has taken to his verified Facebook page to react to the ongoing Supreme Court Judgement review of January 14, 2020 verdict which ousted Emeka Ihedioha from the Gubernatorial seat and replaces him with Senator Hope Uzodinma.
In a series of messages, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu expressed his displeasure on the conflicting verdicts and cross-verdicts the Supreme Court of Nigeria gave and squarely blamed Justice Tanko Mohammed for dragging the Supreme Court into APCs political mess and ruining the name of the Judicial System in Nigeria.
THE WORLD IS WATCHING TANKO MUHAMMAD & HIS FELLOW INJUSTICES OF THE SUPREME COURT OF NIGERIA
“I am glad the counsel to Hope Uzodinma, one Mr Ododo (SAN), conceded earlier today under cross-examination by the judges that indeed The Supreme Court can revisit or “set aside a previous judgement if there is a slip or clerical errors”. Note the term, ‘slip or clerical errors’ as I warned this morning during our 6 am broadcast. Therefore the flawed judgement of January 14, 2020 imposing the caliphate slave Hope Uzodinma on Imo people can in law be set aside. This is an uncontested fact.”
“Equally compelling is the submission by Kanu Agabi (SAN) who clarified in simple terms that contrary to common sense and the law, “the number of votes ascribed to the Hope Uzodinma by Tanko Muhammad and his gang at the Supreme Court exceeded the accredited voters by 128k votes”. This is a fatal error and as such is a no brainer! Previous judgement using falsified figures to impose Uzodinma cannot stand before God in heaven and man on earth.”
“Agabi further submitted that Hope Uzodinma in their pleadings before the Appeal Court upon which their case is predicted, stated unequivocally that “2019 Imo State governorship election was invalid”. Kanu Agabi wondered why Hope Uzodinma would now benefit from the same electoral process his legal team referred to as ‘invalid’ in their submissions. The Supreme Court, in essence, validated invalidity by pronouncing Hope Uzodinma governor in the first instance.”
“I insist therefore that there exists only one equitable face-saving route out of this mess APC and Tanko Muhammad have unceremoniously dragged the Supreme Court into. The Supreme Court of Nigeria MUST order fresh elections to be held in Imo State. QED!”
