Soyinka, Abdulsalami Abubakar To Monitor Supreme Court Imo Review by janefblog: 8:48pm On Feb 17
Uzodimma vs Ihedioha: Wole Soyinka, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, others, to monitor Supreme Court Imo judgement review

Ahead of Tuesday’s Supreme Court review on Imo governorship election, a Third Force Movement consisting of eminent academics and organized civil society have commended the Nigerian Supreme Court for its decision to review its controversial ruling of March 9, 2019, on Imo governorship election.

The group says it has engaged the services of the Nobel Laureate, Prof. Wole Soyinka, Prof. Pat Utomi, leadership of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, the International community and various civil society groups to help monitor the Tuesday Supreme Court review to forestall further irregularities in the state.

In a joint statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, the group described as a mark of maturity the decision of the Apex Court to review its earlier ruling, adding that such step will go a long way in dousing the political tension in the state.

The press statement, according to our reporter was signed by the group’s spokesperson, Dr. Olusegun Awe One and made available to the press.

The statement further hailed the international community and concerned Nigerians for their diplomatic vigilance and interventions on the survival of the nation’s democracy by rising up to the occasion.

The group earlier averred that apart from the total valid votes which the Apex Court based its ruling which however exceeded the total accredited voters by INEC, Senator Hope Uzodinma may also not have fulfilled the constitutional requirements for a validly elected governor of the state, having failed to score at least one-quarter of the votes cast in each of the at least two-thirds of all the local government areas in the state.

It condemned the observable “double standard” by the Apex Court by earlier declaring Uche Nwosu the authentic candidate of APC in the state and declaring Senator Hope Uzodinma winner who is also a candidate of APC, a development it said has remained contradictory.

The leaders also asserted that the judgment completely overthrows all known judicial precedence and electoral jurisprudence in Nigeria, insisting that its reversal by the Supreme Court will prevent the precipitation of a major uprising and anarchy in Imo capable of overwhelming security and stability in the entire southeast.

It, however, charged the people of Imo state and entire southeast to remain calm and hopeful, expressing optimism that the Apex Court will do justice to the matter during its review on Tuesday.

Other persons engaged by the group to monitor the review are former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu, Mr Femi Falana, Comrade Shehu Sanni, Oby Ezekwesili, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Alhaji Balarebe Musa amongst others.

This our judiciary self

Is it that they are lazy to read everything needed to be read b4 passing judgement?

Why are always in haste to declare, without studying every shoddy points hidden in a case


The mistake they (judiciary) make is just too expensive.

Imagine delivering a judgement when then number of valid votes supercede accredited votes...


God bless Nigeria sha

I doubt if supreme Court will revise its judgment.

The supreme Court of Buhari agreeing to review the case it is just a sham, I hope I am wrong on this

If Buhari has any sense left he could use this opportunity as a cheap win to shore up his battered image. But a dullard is a dullard.

And who cares about that good for nothing Abdulsalami.

Supreme court judges and all their accomplices are under immense pressure to reverse that fraudulent ruling or risk severe international sanctions. They are in panic hence the review of the judgement.
