Atiku blackmailing judiciary, yet to recover from shock defeat – Tinubu

According to President Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar’s purported attempt to intimidate the court will fail. Atiku is a candidate for president in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Atiku’s most recent remark, according to Tinubu, demonstrated that he had not yet fully recovered from his shocking loss in the 2023 presidential election.

He challenged Atiku to show proof of attempts by his administration to sabotage the judiciary.

The president claimed that Atiku’s claims were full of innuendos, insinuations, and downright lies in a statement released by his spokesperson, Dele Alake.

We have read the ridiculous and juvenile statement made by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the former vice president and candidate for president of the Peoples Democratic Party in the most recent election, according to Alake.

It is clear that the former vice president has not fully recovered from the shock of defeat after being soundly defeated by the All Progressives Congress and current president Bola Ahmed Tinubu, as evidenced by the current attempt to naughtily stir up yet another round of absurdities that defy common sense and rational thought.

Alhaji Atiku accused the current APC administration of conspiring to destroy the judiciary in the poorly thought-out and illogical statement without offering a single shred of supporting documentation. The former vice president Atiku didn’t present any compelling evidence to support his claims that the President Tinubu-led administration and APC sought to undercut, undermine, and compromise the judiciary outside of innuendos, insinuations, and outright lies contained in the aforementioned press statement.

If the former vice president truly believes in democracy and the integrity of the judiciary as he claims, he wouldn’t make baseless and outrageous claims intended to defame and undermine a crucial branch of government that should act as a safeguard for our democracy.

“Even though he is a party to a matter before the Presidential Election Petition Court, he cynically used this feeble effort to threaten and blackmail the judiciary.

Let it be said that when it comes to matters of fighting for democracy and democratic ideals, rule of law and independence of Judiciary in Nigeria, President Bola Tinubu stands shoulder above Atiku Abubakar. When President Tinubu was leading the charge against the emasculation of the judiciary and promoting the sanctity of rule of law as the building block for good governance as Governor of Lagos State between 1999-2007, under a PDP central government, Alhaji Atiku was nowhere to be found.

It is on record and to his eternal credit that President Tinubu, through the instrumentality of the law and Judiciary, successfully challenged many of the draconian and obnoxious decisions of the PDP-led Federal Government that trampled on the rights of the States as federating units. Lagos State under the leadership of the then Governor Tinubu won over 13 cases up to the Supreme Court against the hydra-headed PDP administration at the centre.”

The statement maintained that Tinubu can never undermine the judiciary because he won the last election.

No leader with such a sterling and enviable credential as a champion of rule of law, independence of judiciary like President Tinubu will ever contemplate undermining the Judiciary as alleged by Alhaji Atiku.

“President Tinubu won a free, fair and credible election. The February 25, 2023 Presidential election that produced him is the most transparent election ever conducted in Nigeria since 1999.

“President Tinubu and the APC absolutely have no reason to undermine the judiciary in the hope of any favourable judgement,” he added.
