APC blasts PDP, Kashamu for accusing court of bias

24 November 2015, 12:00

Abeokuta - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State has slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kasamu, over a petition by the duo alleging bribery of the judiciary by the APC, reports Punch.

Kashamu and the PDP in separate petitions written to the President of Appeal Court, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, alleged bias against the Justice Henry Olusiyi-led tribunal.

The tribunal had in its October 23 judgment ordered fresh elections in 110 units in the senatorial district.

Kashamu and the PDP also alleged a planned bribery of the Appeal Court sitting in Ibadan and have called for disbandment of the appellate court.

But the APC in a statement on Monday, described the statement made by the PDP and Kashamu as an assault on the judiciary.

The APC statement signed by its Publicity Secretary in Ogun State, Sola Lawal, the APC warned that the allegations levelled against the judiciary by the PDP was assuming incendiary proportions such that, if not checked, could compromise the integrity of the institution of justice.

The party pointed out that every strand of credibility of the judiciary had come under sustained attack by the PDP after losing the last general election wondering whether it was not the same judiciary which operated during PDP’s 16- year rule in the country.
