I have read some of our friends in the APC in Ekiti State hammering on justice as the panacea to the House of Assembly crisis. I just wish to ask if they are not talking about JUSTICE as in the one delivered by Justice Salami in favor of the APC in the elections tribunal.
The SALAMIC one gotten by Fayemi against Asiwaju Segun Oni? When you lose an election so openly and went behind, trying to use the court to prevent the winner from assuming office, that too is justice nah. When as Speaker of the House of Assembly, you refused to attend the swearing-in ceremony of your State Governor, it must be justice too.
Most importantly, when as a Speaker, you adjourned the House sitting indefinitely just one week after a new governor assumed office, knowing full well that the new governor would need the House to approve commissioners, special advisers and others, that too is called justice.
It appears too that some of our friends who moved from PDP to APC have forgotten December 31, 2007 when AC lawmakers made common presentation of budget by Oni appeared like war!
The 13 AC lawmakers were indoctrinated by their Lagos-based sponsors then that if Segun Oni was prevented from presenting the 2008 Budget, the government won’t be able to spend money and the state will be crippled financially.
Or is JUSTICE also the same as using civilian dressed in black suit to act as security men to carry out the impeachment of a governor as done in Ekiti in 2006?
My friends in the APC, this una talks about justice dey make me wan sleep jare. When we all wake up tomorrow, let’s talk about REALITY, which is the father of JUSTICE. Happy new month
