Appeal Court Sacks Rivers PDP Senator George Sekibo by kcmichael: 12:59pm On Aug 24, 2017
Appeal Court has dismissed an appeal filed by Senator George Sekibo challenging the judgment of the Rivers State National Election Tribunal which removed him as Senator representing Rivers East Senatorial District.

The Appellate Court held that the appeal lacked merit as it did not show facts as to why the decision of the lower court should be set aside.

The three-man panel of the Appeal Court held that the ousted lawmaker only reproduced his closing remarks at the end of the hearing at the tribunal, but did not challenge the decision reached by the tribunal.

The panel also held that according to the law, where an issue is not challenged the court has no business considering it.

Opinion: Buhari Should Resign. Make Aisha Buhari Vice President and Swear in Osibanjo As President

Following President Buhari prolong illness it will be good for the country if Buhari decide to resign if he is not getting better within a particular period of time as being published by some news media for Aisha Buhari to be made Vice President to Osibanjo. With Osibanjo Sworn in as president. This will be a win win situation. And will also calm the polity.

This will help women course in Nigeria. It will be an opportunity for a woman to become vice president in Nigeria. And it will boost Nigeria image in the international community. And it will also help to reduce the image of Northern Nigeria as women oppressing region. This will also help to neutralise Buhari comment of she belong to my kitchen and the other room.

It is true Nigeria is not a family affair but in a situation like this we will be killing two birds with one stone.

Aisha Buhari as Vice President will be better than making any of the current power hungry governors and former governors as vice president to Osibanjo because they will be less loyal to President Osibanjo. They will be focus more on how to unseat him and become president.

Many more advanced democracy than Nigeria have witness situation where people from the same family get or almost get to the top position.

The first female president of Argentina was a former first lady Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. She took over directly from her husband. She serve two term till 2015.

The first woman to win party nomination in a major party in the United state and win the popular vote was a former first lady Hillary Clinton. This was in 2016

The bush family in the United State, father and son were both president of the country. And more than one of George Bush senior sons were governors. This was till 2008.

The first female president of South Korea Park Geun-hye was the daughter of a former President. She left office 2017.

The first female prime minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto was a daughter of a former prime minister. Pakistan is a country of 97% muslim. For those who will argue Nothern muslim cannot support her because she is a woman, parkistan has shown example. She serve twice between 1988 and 1996.

Other examples of daughters of former prime minister who became prime minister are :
Indira Gandhi of India was daughter of Jaharwal Nehru, Megawatti Sukarnoputri of Indonesia was daughter of Sukarno, Yingluck Shinawatra of Thailand was daughter of Taksin Shinawatra, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo of the Philippines was daughter of Diosdado Macapagal.

In a more extreme case Nicaragua a central America country elects husband and wife pair as president and vice-president in 2016. This was possible because the people loved the president because he succeeded in reducing poverty in Nicaragua.

For those who are more concern that she is a woman and a Muslim, The current vice president of Iran a country with more than 99% Muslim is a woman.

Congratulations to Sen Andrew Uchendu, members of APC in Rivers and the entire good people of Rivers east senatorial district. It took a while but their votes eventually counted. His victory also clearly shows that APC is fully rooted in the state. With two senators now, the party should be able to easily sweep away Wike in 2019. Up Amaechi!!

Appeal court is the court of final jurisdiction. The case cannot be appealed to the supreme court.

I am pretty sure you have never seen the four walls of a courtroom so hold your peace. The Justices of the Supreme Court didn't fall from Heaven, they were all elevated from the lower courts. If you are in Lagos kindly attend a court session presided over by Justice Candide-Johnson and whenever you are in Abuja do find time to attend a court session presided over by Justice Kutigi. Open your mimd.
