Allegations against Supreme Court justices: PDP swipes Gov. Buni, demands his resignation

Yobe Governor and Interim National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mala Mai Buni’s allegation against the justices of the Supreme Court of Nigeria is baseless and irresponsible, the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said on Tuesday.
For such wild and flippant statement, the PDP has asked Buni to resign his as governor and APC acting chairman.
The Apex Court had frowned at APC  leadership comment against it’s justices.
APC had falsely accused the Justices of the Supreme Court of holding a meeting with PDP leaders allegedly to subvert justice, in a case, in which the PDP is not even a party (lmo North Senatorial bye-election case).

But the PDP in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said: it is indeed appalling that the illegal Mai Buni leadership of the APC could, in their penchant for falsehood, go to the extent of falsely accusing the Justices of the Supreme Court of holding a meeting with PDP leaders allegedly to subvert justice, in a case, in which the PDP is not even a party.

“The pronouncement of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the land, has ultimately vindicated our stand that the APC is a party of irresponsible, reckless and dishonorable persons, who only thrive in fabrications, falsehood, lies, blackmail and character assassination.

“It is shameful that after mismanaging its nomination process in the Imo North Senatorial bye-election, the APC leadership is seeking to drag our party into its vicious attempt to use the instrument of blackmail and character assassination against the justices of the Supreme Court to settle their internal scores.

“While it is obvious that the APC is plagued with political cannibalism, infighting and backstabbing, it is shocking that it will carry its wild tendencies to this ridiculous extent.

“The assertion by the Supreme Court that ‘if people as highly placed as the interim chairperson of the APC would open his mouth and make this weighty statement against innocent justices of this court…” places a huge moral burden and integrity question on Governor Mai Buni.

“Our party holds that the declaration by Supreme Court that the APC has been making such “useless statements” in the past further vindicates our stand that the APC is ethically challenged and should not have been entrusted with governance.“Our party therefore demands that Alhaji Mai Buni should immediately resign as governor and APC chairperson, having been indicted by the Supreme Court, after which he should face the court to answer for his baseless and “irresponsible” allegation.”

The PDP, therefore, advised APC to leave it alone and mind it’s business.

“The party should face its self-inflicted woes in the courts.”
