Osun: Politicians dropping Buhari’s name to influence Supreme Court judgment, group alleges
Ahead of the judgment of the Supreme Court on the Osun State governorship tussle scheduled to be delivered next Friday (July 5), an Abuja-based civil society group, the Guardian of Democracy and Development Initiative, has alleged that some persons particularly top politicians have been dropping President Muhammadu Buhari’s name in their bid to influence the apex court’s verdict.
.
The group through some of its members led by its Executive Director, Charles Ibang, said this at a press conference in Abuja late on Thursday.
.
Ibang said such move by “some anti-democratic forces who are bent on dragging the name of President Muhammadu Buhari in the mud” constituted “a threat to our nascent democracy”.
.
He said, “We are here assembled to alert Nigerians that some politicians are scheming to truncate the wheel of justice at the Supreme Court over the ongoing litigation on Osun governorship.
.
“As a civil society group with deep interest in the protection and deepening of our democratic culture, we view with trepidation ongoing moves to harass and intimidate the judiciary on Osun government judgment.
.
“Reports we read and hear in public space indicated that some politicians are dropping the names of President Muhammadu Buhari to compel lord justices to do their bidding. If this is true, this constitute a great disservice to the rule of law and a threat to this nascent democracy.
