…Alerts of Connivance With APC
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alerts of moves by the All
Progressives Congress (APC) and agents of Kano State Governor, Abdullahi
Ganduje, to influence the change of already listed judges of the Kano
state Governorship Election Appeals Panel.
The party further alerts of plots to replace the judges with pliable
ones, who have been compromised and briefed to alter justice and do the
bidding of the APC and Governor Ganduje.
The PDP invites Nigerians to note that the sitting of the panel, which
was moved from Monday, November 11 to Tuesday November 12, 2019 due to
the public holiday on Monday, had been adjourned indefinitely.
We have reports that this was due to pressure being mounted by the APC
and agents of Governor Ganduje to alter the list of the judges.
Our party has also been reliably informed that the indefinite
adjournment was to enable the replacement of the already announced
judges with pliable officials who will manipulate the judicial process
in favour of the APC.
Already, the supporters of Governor Ganduje are in jubilant mode,
claiming that they have moved beyond the Court of Appeal, even when the
panel is yet to commence sitting.
Nigerians will recall that similar scenario played out during the
composition of the Kano Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, when
the initial judges were changed after which the judgment went in favour
of Ganduje and the APC to the chagrin of the people.
With the on-going plot by the APC, Ganduje’s supporters have been going
about boasting that the Court of Appeal judges, that were already
announced and expected the commence sitting on Tuesday, will be changed
to suit the interest of the APC and Governor Ganduje.
The PDP cautions that any change in the already listed judges could
trigger tension and crisis in the state, given the demand of the people
Our party therefore calls on the President of the Court of Appeal,
Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, not to allow anybody to draw her into the
arena by ensuring that the already constituted panel is not in anyway
Nigerians, especially the people of Kano state, are watching!
