APC calls for dissolution of Osun Governorship Election Tribunal
« on: September 06, 2014, 04:11:16 PM »

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Friday called for the immediate dissolution of the Osun State Governorship Election Tribunal.

It asked that a fresh one be constituted with a view to engendering the confidence of the public in the work of the tribunal.

National Publicity Secretary of the APC , Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said in a statement in Benin that the party?s position was necessitated by the reported removal of the Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice I.M. Bako, on the basis of a petition written by some people.

?According to the information at our disposal, the PDP used one of the candidates in the August 9th gubernatorial election in the state to orchestrate the removal of the Tribunal Chairman, whom the party (PDP) considered not pliable enough for the achievement of its evil machination?, APC said.

It added: ?Therefore, this removal is unacceptable to us, because it suggests that some dark forces are teleguiding the proceedings of the Tribunal ? a development that is inimical to the fair delivery of justice.

??When we got this information about a week ago, we did not lend it much credence, believing that the judiciary will not pander to the PDP or any party whatsoever in the execution of its constitutional duties. But when we read the published report on Friday that the Chairman of the Tribunal has been removed, we were very worried.

??While our confidence in the judiciary remains unshaken, we believe this important arm of government must be shielded from political interference in the interest of justice, and in order for the citizenry not to lose confidence in it??.

APC accused the PDP of desperately seeking to barge into the Government House in Osogbo through the back door by engaging in irresponsible manipulation of facts since it lost the election last month.

??The most glaring has been the attempt by the PDP to deceive the public over the reason why INEC suspended two of its staffers over the Osun election. While these men were actually suspended for trying to rig the election in favour of the PDP, the PDP has put out a shameful lie that they were suspended for manipulating the election result from two local governments to favour the APC?, the party said.

APC said that in view of the clear desperation by the rejected candidate of the PDP in the August 9th polls, all APC members and supporters in particular and the entire good people of Osun in general must remain vigilant in order to frustrate the undisguised attempt by the enemies of progress and anti-democratic forces to thwart the will of the people of the state, which they expressed on August 9th, despite all acts of intimidation and harassment.
