Political Parties

 

The Progressives Governors Forum, (PGF), a body encompasing All Progressives Congress (APC)  governors has decribed as unfair the attack of the Judiciary by Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the last presidential election.

While reacting to Supreme Court’s dismissal of his appeal against the election President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election, Atiku had said that the Judiciary was compromised by a cabal running the presidency.

However, reacting to the statement, the PGF said Atiku could not afford to desecrate the institution of the Judiciary simply because its decision did not favour him, adding that he ought not to have approached the court if he knew it was compromised.

Speaking through Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Lagos State Governor, the PGF said the response of Atiku was ridiculous adding that haven taken a step to approach the court, the decision can go one way or the other. He noted the PDP candidate failed to present his case and cannot blame the court.

“Why did they go to the court if they don’t believe in it? They went to court to file a case, why did they go there to file the case when they believe the courts don’t have what it takes to deliver justice? I think that is ridiculous.

” We all went there, but because you don’t like the outcome, because you cannot prove your case, you don’t need to desecrate the institution”.

Interpol Detains Ex-AGF Bello Adoke In Dubai

Published

Adoke

Interpol in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE),  reportedly detained  a former Attorney-General of Nigeria, Mohammed Bello Adoke.

Adoke was  detained following confusion over a warrant of arrest that has already been vacated.

A federal capital territory (FCT) high court in Abuja had issued a warrant of arrest against Adoke and four others on April 17, 2019, following a request by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over the controversial OPL 245 deal executed by the federal government in 2011.

However, following an application by Adoke’s lawyers, the court, presided over by D. Z. Senchi, vacated the warrant on October 25, 2019, declaring it “null and void and of no effect whatsoever”. While the first order was sent to Interpol by the Nigerian police, the vacating order was not transmitted, thereby creating confusion for the multinational force.

The EFCC, reacting to the vacated order, had said it would advertise the originating summons in the newspapers after which it would declare the defendants wanted if they fail to appear for trial. Adoke himself said he was preparing to return to the country after releasing his book and attending to his health.

 

The senior lawyer, who was said to have arrived Dubai on Monday, November 11, for a scheduled medical check-up, was quizzed by the Interpol and then taken into custody following the mix-up.

Adoke has been on self-exile since 2015, accusing the EFCC of trying to humiliate him and maintaining that he did no wrong in the OPL 245 affair.

 

He recently published his memoir, “Burden Of Service: Reminiscences of Nigeria’s former Attorney-General”, detailing his role in the OPL 245/Malabu Oil deal as well as other events that happened in the Goodluck Jonathan administration, which he served as AGF from 2010 to 2015.

Kogi West Rerun Election: I Reject Factitious Result In Totality-Dino Melaye

Published

Result

Senator Dino Melaye has rejected the results of the Kogi West Senatorial District rerun election which held on Saturday November 16.

Melaye who described the election as “helicopter election”, told newsmen that it was marred by compromise, extreme violence, and rigging.

According to Dino, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should have stopped the collation of results following the violence recorded in the election.

“The innovation is that what we had is what I have christened ‘Helicopter election’. For the first time, rigging has been advanced to the level that now the use of a helicopter in perpetuating this electoral atrocity manifested yesterday,” he told newsmen in Abuja.

“Helicopter hovering around Polling units in Lokoja, dropping bullets on innocent, harmless citizens and electorate; and as I speak, yesterday, teargas being fired from this helicopter.

“Despite the fact that this helicopter was used in harassing, intimidating and firing innocent electorates, the votes of those places were carted away and taken to the government house, stuffed and brought back to the collation centre and they have been accepted and admitted and collation is ongoing.

“They brought mayhem on my own community and even killed my nephew, we are waiting to see what INEC will do, but I reject in totality, this fictitious result and I want to say that all these are not about the election, it is about Dino Melaye,” he said.

Recall that the election that saw Melaye emerging as the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District was nullified by an Appeal Court on October 11.
