But you see, you cannot get the Presidency of Nigeria by threats or by shouting victim hood. This is a political process and you have to engage other parts of Nigeria to convince them to support you.

Supreme Court As Graveyard Of Electoral Mandates By Farooq Kperogi

Justice Ibrahim Tanko Muhammad’s Supreme Court will go down in history as easily Nigeria’s most blatant bastion of supreme injustice. In the last one year, it has shaped up to be the graveyard of electoral mandates. It either sanctifies transparent electoral heists, such as Buhari’s blazing mandate theft, using the most astonishingly illogical arguments or reverses approximations of people’s choices such as in Zamfara, Imo, and Bayelsa. In inflicting legal violence on people’s choices, the Supreme Court appears to have no care for basic consistency.
