A Rejoinder On Justice Okon Abang Ruling That Recognizes Sheriff Group by TonyeBarcanista(m): 9:56am On Jul 01, 2016
Just yesterday(30/06/2016), it was reported that a certain Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court(Abuja division) issued interlocutory injunction restraining INEC from recognising the PDP Edo State primary election conducted by the National Caretaker Committee led by Senator Ahmed Markafi that produced Pastor Ize Iyamu as duly elected candidate. In the same interim ruling, the so called judge also instructed INEC to recognise the arrangement that was organised by former party chairman Sen Ali Modu Sheriff and his friends.

AN ABSOLUTE IRRATIONAL RULING
In all sincerity, what kind of judgement is that? Which judge that knows his/her worth would give such a judgement when barely 24hours after another Judge Valentine Ashi of Abuja High Court had ruled that the 2014 PDP Constitution Amendment that Sheriff and his team were making claim of was illegal, null and void, and in violation of the Electoral Act? When did Justice Okon Abang of Federal High Court (Abuja) assume the power of a Superior court to Abuja High Court that it constitute himself into an Appeal body?
http://www.premiumtimesng.com/news/headlines/206099-court-sacks-modu-sheriff-pdp-chairman.html

Is Justice Abang not also aware that Justice A. M. Liman of the Federal High Court, Portharcourt has barred Sherriff from parading himself as Chairman of the party in May 24, 2016, and had fixed July 04, 2016 to rule on the suit brought to him by Sheriff to vacate the order? Is it not the ruling that prompted INEC to insist on recognising the legitimate mandate of Markafi led Caretaker Committee, and even went ahead to monitor the Edo Congress and primary by the party leadership?
http://www.vanguardngr.com/2016/05/court-bars-sheriff-as-pdp-chair-orders-recognition-of-markarfi-led-caretaker-committee/

It is unheard of in any democracy that an High Court Judge will arrogate an appeal privilege to himself to overrule the judgement of TWO courts of coordinate jurisdiction. Why do people flagrantly abuse the law? What is the rationality behind the order? Justice Okon should wait for his promotion to Appeal Court bench if he is so eager to be an appellate Judge on High Court Judges.

I trust INEC to confine the order into the next available trash can.

SHERIFF IS CHASING SHADOWS
It will be in the interest of democracy and the country for Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to wait for the July 4 verdict of the Federal High Court, Portharcourt, and to head to Court of Appeal to appeal the ruling of the Abuja High Court that barred him from parading himself as PDP National Chairman instead of chasing shadows by running to Justice Okon Abang that has NO POWER to overturn another High Court judgement in order to obtain a null and void judgement.

THE REAL PLOT OF ALI MODU SHERIFF
Like I did mention to a friend on Palmchat, I don't need a prophet to know that Ali Modu Sheriff is doing what he is doing in order to create anarchy within the camp of PDP Governorship candidate and the incoming Governor of Edo State, Pastor Ize Iyamu. One don't need a prophet to know that the plan of Sheriff is to see that INEC/Court disqualifies PDP from the election to provide an expressway to the would-be defeated APC unsellable candidate Godwin Obaseki and the outgoing Governor Adams Oshiomole(but it is dead on arrival)

Make no mistake, Sheriff is aware that the Electoral Act stipulates that party must inform INEC of their Primaries 21 days before the said date, and mandates INEC to monitor primary election of parties. It also mandates delegates to participate in the Primaries to elect flagbearers. Sheriff is very much aware that his camp did not meet ANY of the criteria spelt by the Electoral Act, and anything done by their group is as good as waste of time and resources. Hence, their scheme is to see that the law is manipulated to give their faction legitimacy, after which INEC will decline to field PDP candidate for not meeting criteria, and thereby allowing the APC a one way space. They will NEVER succeed.

...BUT TEAM IZE IYAMU AND EDO PEOPLE CAN'T BE BROKEN
However, it is my pleasure to inform Sheriff and his friends that apart from the fact that the great Edo people want NOBODY but Pastor Iyamu, the PDP led by Markafi enjoys every form of legitimacy, and the process that produced the pastor met every requirement of the Electoral Act. Hence, the plot to deny Edo people the opportunity to bring their leader to power in September is Dead on Arrival.

To God be the Glory, Edo people, Pastor Ize Iyamu, and PDP are in high spirit and shall never be broken. Edo shall make history to be the first state to Change the Change come September 2016. Power shall return to the people.









May God Bless Us All and Bless Nigeria
God Bless Edo State and Edo People

It is becoming crystal clear that some machineries within the APC are hellbent to destabilize the camp of PDP just to dissuade them from the coming elections in Edo and Ondo but its a wasted effort already. Edo and Ondo already in PDP's bag.

The issue of Abia state is no issue at all. Justice Okon gave his order but Governor Ikpeazu has 21 days to Appeal. Supreme Court had ruled that once an Appeal and stay of execution is lodged, status quo be maintained pending the outcome of the suit. The Governor still has the privilege of both the Appellate and Apex courts.
