Alawuje Reacts to Farooq Kperogi’s Statement over the Kano Appeal Court Judgment, Says Tinubu, Ganduje have No Influence Over the Judgement
Let’s put things in proper perspective and learn how to separate politics from facts. Count Tinubu/ Ganduje out of the outcome of Kano state governorship judgment.
The statement credited to Farooq Kperogi that Tinubu and Ganduje should not play with fire in Kano is quite unfair, to say the least. It is phlegmatic and unsavoury to create an imbroglio where there is none and create a storm in a teacup.
The elections litigations involving Abba Yusuf of NNPP and Nasir Gawuna of APC are still a matter yet to be laid to rest by the Court. There is still the avenue of the Supreme Court to right whatever wrong any of the parties involved in the legal process might have perceived. Playing to the gallery and making incendiary comments about a matter before the court is not fanciful. It amounts to gauging the judiciary. The court should not be bullied.
Tinubu/Ganduje’s hands are completely free from the matter. Nigerians should disregard this latest smear campaign.
As at this material time, do we really have any reason for covering or manipulating the truth?
What stops the judiciary from saying the truth and setting issues right? The judiciary is the last hope of everyone irrespective of class. The temple of justice should not be desecrated. The hope of the people in the judiciary couldn’t have been slaughtered by the judiciary itself on the alter of flimsy sentiments. Let strict adherence to the Constitution at all times be our guiding principles.
Should the court cover the truth because it doesn’t want the party or the candidate involved to feel bad? Absolutely no.
Anyway, no state in Nigeria does have a monopoly on causing a crisis or fomenting troubles.
Most of the states are only trying to be careful and handle things in a very perfect and mature way.
Let us remember. The two major contestants are from the same Kano.
It is clear to the losers that they lost the elections and it is very clear to the winner that he is the real owner of the mandate.
It is not one ethnicity against another and it is not one faith against the other. They are one, irrespective of their local governments.
It is very irritating for anyone to tag Tinubu or the APC National chairman with the victory of the APC governorship candidate in Kano.
I am very sure if Obi or Atiku could find millions of voter cards without INEC stamps, the entire world would have stood against the victory of President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu himself.
Let’s call a spade a spade. There’s nothing meaningful to defend in the claimed victory of the NNPP candidate with those humongous-sized voter cards without INEC stamps.
We still have a very long way to go to redeem our political image and structure in this country.
Without any fear of telling the truth, it will be very hard to dispute the fact that the governor himself is fully aware that he did not win the election.
My dear brother, I respect you too much but I am very disappointed in this submission of yours in the publication of the Tribune online news.
When I started reading it, I expected to see something different from what the court was treating. I expected to see some other facts that the NNPP and its candidate presented in the court. But if your argument is all premised on the need to avoid crisis, definitely we are unfair to the real winner of the election. Judgements are not passed on mere sentiments. Otherwise, justice itself would be the victim.
Some of us of this generation have to be very careful in what we publish for the consumption of the general public.
