The All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman,Mr. Adams Oshiomhole has berated the Supreme Court for its judgement on the Zamfara state elections.
Oshiomhole who addressed newsmen in Abuja on Monday at the APC national secretariat said the judgement was an injustice to his party.
“There is something I learnt from Lord Denning, a famous British Supreme Court Justice, that the law has to be interpreted taken into account the intention of the lawmakers, and try to deliver justice in its purest form.
“So, there is no justice when on grounds of technicalities, you impose on the people of Zamfara, not just a man or a woman, but a whole party candidates from Governor to Senate and others that they didn’t elect.
“If the court thought we were wrong, justice would have demanded that we repeat, but you can not use technicalities because we are in a democracy.
“There is nothing democratic when the court imposing strangers to govern a people, but we understand that after the Supreme Court, we can only take our case to the Court of God, to that extent we must obey the Court,”he said.
The Supreme had last Friday upturned APC’s victory in Zamfara on grounds of technicality. The court in a lead judgement by Justice Paul Galinji held that all the votes cast for the APC during the last elections in the state were wasted votes since the party failed to conduct primaries in accordance with party rules and hence had no candidates in the election
