‘Allow judiciary to function’ – NNPP chieftain cautions Tinubu




A chieftain of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Ambassador Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, has advised President Bola Tinubu not to interfere with the functions of the judiciary.…CONTINUE READING

The Court of Appeal in Abuja had last Friday nullified the victory of Kano State’s governor, Abba Yusuf. The court said that the governor is not a member of the political party.

Oguntoyinbo, who was the 2023 gubernatorial candidate of NNPP in Ogun State, while speaking on Tuesday, said that Tinubu should not intimidate the judiciary.

The NNPP chieftain, in a statement made available to DAILY POST on Tuesday after paying a solidarity visit to Yusuf, said: “President Bola Ahmed Tinubu should not interfere with the functions of the judiciary but instead allow the judiciary to function effectively as expected in democratic governance.

“The president should not cow the judiciary; he should realise that Nigeria is not Lagos, where he turned the state into an APC state with no functioning opposition parties.


“APC as a party and the President are too desperate to control all states in Nigeria, hence their resort to pushing the judiciary to achieve their aim of foisting on the country a one-party system.

“Last week, former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar warned the nation of the plan of the ruling APC and President Bola Tinubu to turn the country into a one-party state. I agree with Alhaji Atiku and want all other statesmen to rise up and caution President Tinubu not to turn the country to Lagos State, where he pockets everything.”
