- Galadima says his party is interested in knowing how the apex court arrived at its decision.
- If this judgment had been against Buhari, there would have been fireworks all over this country.
A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Buba Galadima, has faulted the verdict of the Supreme Court on the 2019 presidential election outcome.
The court dismissed the petition of the party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar for lack of merit. The Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), who led a 7-man panel dismissed Atiku’s appeal for lacking in merit. He also said how the court arrived at the decision would be forwarded to various parties soon.
Galadima who is also the spokesman for the presidential campaign council of the party said PDP is interested in knowing how the apex court arrived at its decision.
“We are waiting to hear the final analysis of how they arrived at that decision. And we as Nigerians have a cover under the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria whether it supports our view,” he said when he featured as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.
Nigerian’s not happy
Speaking further on the judgment that was given against the PDP’s favour, Galadima noted that the development showed that the Nigerians were not happy with the ruling.
He added that if the apex court had upturned election of President Muhammadu Buhari, the entire nation would have been filled with jubilation.
“If this judgment today had been that Buhari was removed from office, I’m sure that by now, there would have been fireworks all over this country.
“People would have been jubilating, pouring water on the streets and celebrating. But have you seen any individual who has demonstrated that he is happy with this judgment?” he asked.
