The National Judicial Council of Nigeria, Committee on Interview for Appointment of Judicial Officers into the Supreme Court, on 18th September invited 12 judges for an interview for elevation into the Apex court.
Among them are there judges; Justices Muhammed Garba, Abdu Aboki and Samuel Oseji, who sat in the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal the heard the petition of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a development that’s raising concern and suspension among Atiku’s followers.
In a statement on Saturday, founder and Chairman of Deservation.Org and the prime mover of the PUKKA Initiative, Dr. Sani Adamu has raised an alarm that the Presidency is attempting to influence the outcome of the Supreme court judgement between Alhaji Atiku Abubakar the President Buhari.
Dr. Sani alleged that invitation of the three judges could only be at the instance of the Presidency, saying it should not be allowed to happen.
“Three Justices of the Appeal Court who sat on the Presidential election petition tribunal that ruled that Buhari won the February election have been penciled down for elevation to the Supreme Court. They are Justices Muhammed Garba, Abdu Aboki and Samuel Oseji.”
“This situation would portend a grave danger for our democracy and it must not be allowed to happen”, Sani added.
He further explained that “those justices were responsible for the unfavourable judgement that the PDP got and is appealing at the Supreme Court, bring them into the Supreme Court would subverted all the efforts of the common man”
Adamu called on the international community to intervene quickly before the Buhari administration plunge Nigeria into crisis.
