If we don’t settle the cases at the tribunal, May 29th will be remembered as a mourning day, according to Chidoka

Earlier today, Osita Chidoka, a prominent figure within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), voiced accusations of double standards against the Supreme Court.Continue Reading>>>

The court recently dismissed a lawsuit filed by the PDP seeking to disqualify President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu based on an alleged double nomination involving his running mate and Vice-President-elect, Alhaji Kashim Shettima.

During an interview on ARISE TV’s ‘Prime Time’ program with Charles Aniagolu on Friday night, Chidoka, a former Minister of Aviation, argued that the court’s assertion that the PDP had no authority to intervene in the internal affairs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) contradicted a previous ruling made by the court in a similar case. Chidoka highlighted what he perceived as a discrepancy in the court’s application of legal principles.Continue Reading>>>

Quoting Osita Chidoka’s exact statement, he said, “May 29th will be recorded as a day of mourning if we don’t resolve the cases at the Tribunal.” “I want to express my utmost respect for the Supreme Court and some of the Justices whom I personally know and believe to be people of integrity. However, I must also state that I was surprised by the Supreme Court’s decision.

My surprise stems from the fact that I expected them to uphold the precedent they had set in the case of Uche Nwosu in Imo State. In that case, the issue arose from double nomination across parties, and the Supreme Court made a decision. In that judgment, the court emphasized that the issue of jurisdiction did not arise and that nobody can hide behind jurisdiction in acts of criminality.”
