Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the just-ended February 25 elections has reacted to his recent victory against President Bola Tinubu in a court in the US.

Atiku, who defeated the President at the Northern District of Illinois court said his victory was due to the independence of the judiciary in the United States.

Justice Nancy Maldonado in her ruling ordered the Chicago State University to release all of Tinubu’s academic records to Atiku.

He noted that the US court in the US delivered the judgment based on the merit of the case while judges in Nigeria continued to give Tinubu victory based on technicalities, a development which had led to over 20 dubious victories.

He said Tinubu had continued to evade justice since 1999 when the legendary human rights lawyer, Gani Fawehinmi (SAN), first blew the lid on his alleged certificates scam.

Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku said it was unfortunate that the Nigerian judiciary had failed to live up to expectation as the last hope of the common man.

He said, “Justice Maldonado who has spent less than one year on the bench and who sat on this case for barely a month, has been able to do what the Nigerian judiciary could not do for 23 years. This explains why the Nigerian society is on the brink of slipping into the state of nature, which Thomas Hobbes described as short, brutish, and nasty.

“Ordinarily, we would not have responded to the words of a legal Lilliputian who has never won any landmark case in court and whose growth in the legal field is tied to the apron strings of a Chicago Bagman. However, the truth needs to be said for the sake of posterity.

“It is unfortunate that Ogala glorifies technicality instead of justice. Ogala claimed that the victory was meaningless. So, why did his principal try to block the release of his credentials if he had nothing to hide? Why did he also appeal the initial judgment? The Bible says only the wicked run when no one chases them. Why has Tinubu been blocking the release of his academic records for nearly 30 years?”….CONTINUE READING>>>>>>
