S’Court Judgement: I Pray God Will Give Tinubu The Wisdom To Govern Nigeria Well – Reno Omokri
Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has reacted to the supreme court judgment which dismissed the suit seeking to disqualify Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima as presidential and vice presidential candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
A five-member panel of the supreme court held on Friday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lacked the locus standi to institute the suit.
The panel said the PDP is not a member of the APC.
The PDP had claimed that Shettima’s nomination as Tinubu’s running mate was in breach of the provisions of sections 29(1), 33, 35, and 84(1)(2) of the Electoral Act, 2022.
The opposition party argued that Shettima’s nomination to contest the position of vice-president and Borno central senatorial seat — at the same time — contravened the law.
Reacting in a tweet on his official handle, Omokri, who is a staunch supporter of Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, said everyone must accept the decision of the apex court because it has the final say and not because it is correct.
The ex-presidential aide, who is a strong critic of Tinubu, prayed to God to give him the wisdom to govern Nigeria well until the final determination of his party’s main suit, “which we pray the PDP wins.”
According to him, “Whether or not we win, we shall continue to wish our country and its leaders well, even though we are disappointed.”
Well, the Supreme Court has spoken, and we must accept that they are final, not because they are correct, but because they are final. The inauguration will go on. I pray that God will give Tinubu the wisdom to govern Nigeria well until the final determination of our main suit,…
