RE: NEEDLESS CRY THAT IS AKIN TO CRYING THAN THE BEREAVED BY NORTHERN INITIATIVE FOR THE DEFENCE OF DEMOCRACY AND JUSTICE (NIDDM) IN RESPECT OF KOGI STATE ELECTION TRIBUNAL

It is quite disheartening to always note that, a perceived non- partisan organization such as Northern Initiative for The Defence of Democracy And Justice under the leadership of Its coordinator, one Ambassador Nurudeeen Musa Sadiq recently urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Chairman, National Judicial Council to halt, albeit illegal presumption, an alleged “Judicial Misconduct” in respect of the decision of the Court of Appeal, overturning the decision of the Tribunal over inspection process conducted by SDP and Ajaka.

Although, the case is presently sub-judice (meaning, still pending) and as such, no external decision can be given, so as not to undermine the integrity of the Tribunal.

However, we need to clarify some salient issues regarding the cry of wolf 🐺 presently occasioned by Ambassador Nurudeeen Musa Sadiq, over his ineptitude and inept utterances, degrading the reputation of our revered. Justices of the Court of Appeal.

It is quite kindergarten and an ALLEGED ambassador should have known that, any decision arising from the Tribunal goes to the Court of Appeal and thereafter, to the supreme court. It is captured under relevant sections of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 ( as amended)

Section 6(6) B of the Constitution mentioned above, empowered any individual or organization to approach court of law for the ventilation of any grievances, arising from either election or any other conceivable claim. And that is exactly what SDP and Ajaka have done, aftermath of Kogi Gubernatorial Election.

SDP and Ajaka are well represented by seasoned legal luminaries and they simply know their legal onions regarding what is presently playing out in our various courts, regarding the post election litigation in Kogi State.

Whereas, it is insulting that, an ALLEGED non-partisan organization like Northern Initiative for The Defence of Democracy And Justice would come down so low, to berate our judicial system.

Ambassador Nurudeeen Musa Sadiq is allowed to be Joined as necessary party in the election petition, if he so wish and canvas his argument therein

May it be noted that, it is unfounded that, His Excellency Alh. Usman Ododo would direct a legal luminary like JB Daudu, SAN to perpetuate an illegal act of any kind or coerced any political party or its members, for any reason.

It is also pertinent to note that, APC and its candidate in Kogi Gubernatorial Election Petition, Alh. Usman Ahmed Ododo is a law abiding Nigerian citizen that would not engage in a sordid transaction.

IN CONCLUSION, the case is pending before the courts and SDP and Ajaka knows their legal onions.

Ambassador Nurudeeen Musa Sadiq should not cry more than the bereaved and as such, desist from playing to the gallery, as his submission is not only condemnable but tantamount to court contempt.
