Fayose Condemns Cancellation Of Taraba Guber Election

2 Min Read

Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has condemned the judgment of the Taraba State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal that nullified the election of Governor Darius Ishaku on Saturday.

He described the judgment as a ridiculous political judgment orchestrated by the leadership of the All Progressives Congress in collusion with some members of the judiciary.

While stating that there was a conspiracy against the PDP, he called on the highest court in the country, the Supreme Court, to save Nigeria from the throes of imminent anarchy.

He said: “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.”

Fayose re-affirmed his dedication to saying the truth no matter whose ox is gored.

“If everybody is persecuted and intimidated to submission, I will remain resolute in my resolve to always say the truth before men and God,” he stressed.
