Judiciary is Nigerians Greatest Problem-Onuesoke
LAGOS AUGUST 18TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Delta State Peoples Democratic PDP, Chieftain and Delta State PDP Governorship aspirant in 2007 election, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has affirmed that the judiciary is the greatest problem of Nigerian democracy.
Speaking in Port- Harcourt, Rivers State yesterday while reacting to Police sealing off of PDP convention venue in Port Harcourt as a result of Abuja Court order, Onuesoke said he is blaming the judiciary for the confusion because a situation where a court in Port Harcourt has giving approval for the convention to hold, another court of similar giving a different judgment to over rule it is abnormal.
According to him, “The judiciary is confusing issues. Port Harcourt court had giving an order last week for the convention to be held, while the Abuja High court order was given only on Monday this week. Why must an Abuja court gives an order to stop the convention, when a similar court had already approved the convention? This is why I said the judiciary is the greatest problem of Nigerian democracy.”
Onuesoke, the South -South PDP strongman alleged that the action of the Abuja court had giving those who are interested in the disorganization and fall of the PDP to use their power to obstruct the holding of the convention wondering what concern police and party convention.
“The duty of police is to maintain peace and order and not to seal off party convention venue like the one we just experienced in Port Harcourt on Wednesday. Why do we not take a cue from America where Donald Trump is abusing the seating President Obama and things are still going on as scheduled,” Onuesoke queried.
Onuesoke who alleged that it is obvious that political gladiators are manipulating the judiciary against PDP, argued that what is happening negate the period of former President Goodluck Jonathan where he always encourage people to obey court order, alleging that under this present administration impunity is growing by the day, and it will get to a point where people would arm themselves with judgments from their favorite judges.
