The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has described as injustice, the Supreme Court judgement, which upturned the party’s electoral victory in Zamfara in favour of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on grounds of technicality.
Speaking with newsmen at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Monday after the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting, Oshiomole stressed that the Supreme Court ruling means that strangers have been imposed on the people of Zamfara.
According to him, the right thing the court should have done is to call for a repeat of the elections if the party fell short of electoral laws than the decision it took.
While acknowledging that since it is impossible to appeal the Supreme Court ruling, he said the party will take its case the God.
He, however, recalled that a High Court had earlier ruled at the time the votes were cast in favour of the APC, saying he party’s candidates were validly nominated.
“There is something I learnt from Lord Denning, a famous British Supreme Court Justice, that the law has to be interpreted taken into account the intention of the lawmakers, and try to deliver justice in its purest form.”
While pointing that there is no justice when on grounds of technicalities by imposing a whole party candidate from Governor to Senate and others that the electorates didn’t elect, Oshiomhole said there is nothing democratic when the court imposing strangers to govern a people.
“But we understand that after the Supreme Court, we can only take our case to the Court of God, to that extent we must obey the Court,” he said.
According to him, what the APC got in Zamfara was a judgement that didn’t translate to justice, considering the way the people of the state voted for the party and its candidates.
