Mr Adams Oshiomhole, All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, faulted the judgement of the Supreme Court judgement, which upturned the party’s electoral victory in Zamfara on grounds of technicality.
In the lead judgment by Justice Paul Galinji, the apex court held that all votes cast for the APC during the general elections in Zamfara were “wasted votes”. This was as a result of the party failing to conduct a primary in accordance to the constitution.
Oshiomhole declared that the Supreme Court ruling amounted to imposing total strangers on the people of Zamfara.
He added that the right thing the court should have done, is to call for a repeat of the elections if the party fell short of electoral laws.
He stressed that all political parties with the second highest votes in the elections and with the required spread, were elected to various elective positions in the state.
Oshiomhole, however, maintained that since it is impossible to appeal the Supreme Court ruling, the party will take its case the God.
He further maintained that what the APC got in Zamfara was a judgement that didn’t translate to justice, considering the way the people of the state voted for the party and its candidates.
He, however, declined comments when asked whether the party would sanction its members that took it to Court in Zamfara. (NAN)
