Supreme Court judgment on Lawan valid, sound – Lawyer, Ajulo

A constitutional lawyer, Dr Kayode Ajulo, has said the Supreme Court judgment which restored Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, as the senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for Yobe North Senatorial District is valid and sound.

NAN reports that the legal practitioner made this known while reacting to the judgment in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday amid the controversy that has trailed the verdict.

According to him, most of the counter comments targeted against the Supreme Court’s decision under reference were misconceived, particularly from the perspective of the law.

The Supreme Court had, on February 6, declared Lawan as the senatorial candidate for Yobe North in a three-against-two split judgment of its five-member panel, led by Justice Chima Nweze.

The apex court, in its judgment on Monday, voided and set aside the decision of the Federal High Court and Court of Appeal which had earlier confirmed Bashir Machina as the candidate.

“The Supreme Court delivered a sound judgment based on the case presented before it.

“The concept of justice is not about a crying baby who runs to his sweet mother, adding that unlike the empathetic mother, the Supreme Court has the obligation to decide any matter based on its peculiarities,” he said.
