Read details of his statement below 👇;
No matter what the judiciary decided based on facts, Nigerians know the truth of what happened on the 25th February 2023 in the presidential election in Nigeria. Truth and facts and evidence in proof are poles apart. While courts rely on evidence of facts, truth does not.
Nigeria will do itself well if at all times it upholds truth in the running of its affairs. Nigerians know the excruciating pains petitioners go through in the hands of INEC and how pink copies of election results are not always given to agents of parties in most cases.
Judgments have been delivered. Justice is different from judgment. Nigeria shall reap the fruits of what is being ditched out by those we trust to do what is right. Those who got judgments know the truth in their hearts. Those celebrating know the truth. Truth is constant.
By my training I respect Courts. I must respect the decisions of courts. That is what the rule of law enjoys me to do. But I stand by my conviction with courage for the truth. No baptismal name of legality can make what is not right to become right. Nigerians know the truth.
