Following the Supreme Court judgments on governorship election petitions, judges of the court have come under heavy attack by leaders and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The APC officials have continued to condemn apex court’s judgments on governorship elections in the oil-rich Niger Delta states- Rivers and Akwa Ibom states.
Coming to their aid, the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), warned the APC leadership to stop its attacks on the country’s judiciary.
In a statement issued by its President, Mr Pedro Obi, NANS, Zone B, said APC’s use of harsh words against the apex court was provocative.
They said: “the APC is only using the political brawl in the states to indirectly accentuate its quest for the oil-rich states of Akwa Ibom and Rivers which have slipped off its political sway. This, the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, could not hide in a recent interview.
“It is really unfortunate that the Chairman of Akwa Ibom State chapter of APC, Mr. Amadu Attai, has shown his party’s desperation to take over Akwa Ibom State by all means.
“The statement released by the chairman Akwa Ibom State chapter of the APC, in response to the Supreme Court verdict on the Akwa Ibom State election, is a political propaganda that doesn’t hold water.
“It is, therefore, an orchestrated attempt to derail the governor’s industrialization blueprint which has started to yield result.
“Hence, it is a stratagem aimed at distracting the governor who is willing to work for the benefit of Akwa Ibom populace, especially the indigent ones.”
