PDP Suit: Atiku joins other Nigerians to fault Keyamo’s comment on supreme court judgment

Former Nigerian Vice-President and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar , has joined other well-meaning Nigerians to react to the comment made by the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, following the dismissal of the PDP’s case against APC by the supreme court.

Reacting to the supreme court judgement on Friday May 26, 2023, Keyamo stated via his Twitter handle that “Law is devoid of sentiments.”

“There was no case in the first place. We will continue to educate them,” Keyamo said.

While some Nigerians tilted to the side of the minister, he, however, incurred the wrath of many, including Atiku Abubakar.

Responding to Keyamo’s comment, Atiku said, “But there was case in Uche Nwosu (AA vs APP) where the supreme court voided Nwosu’s candidature on the double nomination, right?”

The PDP’s presidential candidate added, “The same supreme court judged Nwosu case and granted the prayers of the APP is now saying PDP can not challenge APC on the same issue.”

A concerned Nigerian, CClaude reacted that “Anyone can go to court to get a fair judgement and it shouldn’t matter if opposition. Nigerians, this is why they yelled ‘Go to court’ because it was planned out.”

He added, “This is going to keep happening if judiciary doesn’t end it. The president will be INEC’s favorite to be declared.”

Another Nigerian simplt identified as Fatima, is in alignment with Festus Keyamo.

She stated that “Absolutely no case.
Like I have always said, the opposition doesn’t have any case. But as usual, lawyers get side babes to support the mutual benefits. Make influencers do their jobs.”

She congratulated the president-elect, “Congratulations, Tinubu darling. We meet again 2027.”

Titilayo Ogunmeru maintained that there is a case to make against the candidature of Tinubu and Shettima.

He wrote, “There is a case.This matter I believe have also gone the way of technicality. The matter was not decided on the fact but on ineligibility of PDP to institute it. I have always said that the last election was a duel between the establishment which includes the judiciary and masses.”

The supreme court in agreement with the lower courts ruled that the PDP lacks the locus Standi to institute such a case against APC.

Justice Adamu Jauro who read the Judgement, noted that the PDP acted as meddlesome Interloper and a busy body as it is an internal affair of the APC. The apex court, therefore, awarded a sum of two million naira (N2,000,000) against the PDP, even as the suit was dismissed for lacking in merit.
