Apprehension in Kogi as Supreme Court rules over Kogi Election petitions today
The seat of power in Kogi State may have practically changed base from Lokoja, the state capital, to Abuja as most officials of the state government have relocated to the federal capital ahead of today’s all important judgement of the Supreme Court.
Supporters of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party are not left our as many against all odds in expectation have also moved in droves to Abuja for the make or mar judgement.
While the APC is confident that the apex court will affirm the judgments of the election petition tribunal and the Court of Appeal, the PDP is optimistic of victory at the apex court.
The state Commissioner for Information, Mr. Kingsely Fanwo, said that the state government would not comment because the election dispute was still in court, adding, however, that the apex court should do justice.
However, the state Publicity Secretary of PDP, Mr. Bode Ogunmola, said the Supreme Court will do justice by overturning the judgments of the tribunal and appeal court.
“As a party, we expect good judgment from the Supreme Court. Judiciary still remains the last hope of the common man. We hope that something good will come after all,” he said.
“As a matter of policy and standards, we do not speak on matters that are before a competent court of jurisdiction. It is their responsibility to do justice to the case before the apex court,” he said.
