After the Supreme Court postponed making an appeal decision, Peter Obi released a statement.
According to Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) presidential candidate, “A society is in jeopardy when the rule of law is compromised.”
Tuesday, October 24, Obi wrote a lengthy post on X stating that “when the rule of the powerful and the rule of the rich and the mighty replaces the rule of law.”
Almost twenty-four hours had passed since the Supreme Court postponed ruling on his appeal against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
When that occurs, justice is turned into a commodity that a cult of dishonest judiciary operators and the wealthy and powerful can trade.
“When a democracy is based on faulty justice, it opens society to apparent dangers.”
Remember that Justice John Okoro, the head of the seven-member panel hearing the appeal, had earlier told Legit.ng that the parties concerned would be notified as soon as the verdict was available.
Over time, Obi has urged the supreme court to base its decision on the reality faced by Nigerians and their desire as citizens to see swift and constructive change.
Obi said: “The rich and powerful can trample on the rights of the lowly, as there are no consequences for infractions or lawless acts.
“This can be the groundwork for a democracy to graduate into an autocracy.”
