Taraba Tribunal Judgement Ridiculous, It Can't Stand Before Men And God: Fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has described the tribunal judgment sacking the Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku as a ridiculous political judgement that can never stand before men of good conscience and God.

Governor Fayose, who maintained that there was a conspiracy by the All

Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government and a section of

the judiciary against the People's Democratic Party (PDP), called on

the Supreme Court to save the country from impending anarchy.

In a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public

Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor wondered how

a tribunal could make conduct of the PDP primary that produced

Governor Ishaku in Abuja an issue when the tribunal itself sat in


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."

While reiterating his commitment to speaking the truth in the overall

interest of Nigerians, Governor Fayose said; "If everybody is

persecuted and intimidated to submission, I will remain resolute in my

resolved to always say the truth before men and God."
