Kogi Guber Tribunal: Group Alleges Plan To Subvert Justice

A Group under the aegis of Nigeria Youth Advocacy for Good Governance Initiative Coalition of Civil Society Organizations has alleged plans to Subvert Justice in the ongoing Kogi State Governorship Election Tribunal.

 

The Group was reacting to WhatsApp Group among Kogi State Commissioners announcing plans to bribe Judges with Dollars, an allegation that was dispelled by the Commissioner of Information and Communication, Kingsley Fanwo.

 

However, the National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Shuaibu Abdulkadir during a Press Conference in Abuja urged the Tribunal to uphold the tenet of Judiciary in hearing the matter.

Comrade Abdulkadir notes that “We convene today to address a deeply troubling revelation: the clandestine communication unearthed from the WhatsApp exchanges among Kogi State Commissioners. These exchanges lay bare sinister plots to compromise judicial rulings in favor of the APC candidate, Alhaji Usman Ododo. The involvement of the immediate past Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, casts a dark shadow over the integrity of our judicial apparatus.”

 

He further states that “We unequivocally demand that the judiciary uphold the pillars of our democracy, resolute in their defense against fear and favoritism.”

The Coordinator urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to as a stalwart of democratic principles, resist any temptation to interfere with the judgment of the Kogi State Tribunal.

 

“Despite the potential tumult that may ensue, we steadfastly affirm that justice must prevail. The irrefutable evidence of electoral malpractice, including manipulation, over-voting, and voter inducement across Kogi State’s regions, demands redress. The charade of democracy masquerading as an election warrants scrutiny, for it undermines the very essence of our democratic ethos.
