Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has described the tribunal judgement sacking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku as a “ridiculous political judgement that can never stand before men of good Conscience and God.”
He called on the Supreme Court to save the country from impending anarchy.
The governor spoke through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka on Saturday.
The governor wondered “how a tribunal could make conduct of the PDP primary that produced Governor Ishaku in Abuja an issue when the tribunal itself sat in Abuja.”
“Isn’t it funny that it is no longer about election rigging, but technicality of how PDP candidates emerged even when no one in the PDP went to court to challenge how Governor Ishaku emerged as the PDP governorship candidate?”
Fayose said “If insecurity could make Taraba State Tribunal sit in Abuja and not in Jalingo, how then can it be justified that the same tribunal that sat in Abuja nullified the governor’s election because the primary election that produced him too was held in Abuja?
