    Supreme Court

    Senator Ben Murray-Bruce was detested that the All Progressive Congress could be querying the verdict of the Supreme Court that ruled in favour of Governors Udom Emmanuel and Okezie Ikpeazu of Akwa Ibom and Abia states respectively.

    The Apex Court had thrown out the verdict of the Appellate Court for both states and upheld the April 11, 2015 governorship elections that brought the duo to power. 

    But in a swift reaction, the APC Chairman Chief John Odigie Oyegun lamented the judgment, calling for the probe of judiciary and most especially the Supreme Court, which in the recent time had tilted to the opposition party, the PDP.

    Two weeks ago, the Supreme Court upheld the election of Nyesom Wike as the truly eected governor of Rivers State. 
    To Oyegun, the three victories for PDP should not have been but the judiciary is biased. He said, 

    “There is something fundamentally wrong in the judiciary. There is obviously something fundamentally wrong in Rivers State which needs to be investigated and addressed.
    I still find the judgement on the Rivers State governorship election totally astonishing. There is something fundamentally wrong in the judiciary.

    “We have lost very important resource-rich states to the PDP. No matter how crude oil prices have fallen, it is still the most important revenue earner for the country.

    Reacting, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce from Bayelsa East kicked against Oyegun’s comment, urging APC to learn how to be sportsmanship. As he put it “We should all be good sportsmen like ex-president Gooduck Jonathan and learn to accept defeat instead of calling for the probe of Supreme Court Justices.
