Ahmed Lawan: Shehu Sani reacts as Supreme Court voids Machina’s APC ticket

Former Nigerian lawmaker, Senator Shehu Sani, has reacted to the Supreme Court judgement on Monday, which restored the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan as the authentic Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress APC, for Yobe North Senatorial District.

Sani’s reaction was contained in a post via his verified Twitter handle.

Recall that the Apex Court in its judgment voided and set aside the judgments of the Federal High Court and that of the Court of Appeal which had earlier confirmed Bashir Sheriff Machina as the APC Senatorial candidate.

However, Sani said in his reaction noted that the forces against fair elections in the country are not giving up anytime soon.

He also advised Nigerians to be watchful if the country must have a credible election.

“It’s glaring that the forces against fair elections are unrelenting; We must all be vigilantes for democracy if we really want this election to be credible,” he tweeted.

    The declaration of Ahmed Lawan as the APC senatorial candidate by the Supreme Court of Nigeria despite not following due process and allegedly forging signatures is a matter of concern for every Nigerian because it undermines the principles of justice and the rule of law. When the highest court in the land disregards previous rulings and disregards the rules and regulations of the electoral process, it sends a message that the justice system is not impartial and can be swayed by political interests. This can erode public trust in the judiciary and the democratic process, and lead to a loss of confidence in the legitimacy of election results. It is important for the judiciary to maintain its impartiality and integrity to ensure the fair administration of justice and to uphold the rule of law.
