Senator Kabiru Marafa (APC-Zamfara) has stated that the Supreme Court ruling over the APC Zamfara primaries shows that truth always prevails over falsehood.
Naija News recalls that the Apex Court dismissed an appeal challenging the nullification of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) primary elections in Zamfara state.
The nations final court also voided all votes cast for the party during the general elections.
The five-member panel of justices, in a unanimous judgment, held that the APC in Zamfara state failed to conduct primaries in accordance with the party rules.
Reacting in a statement to newsmen, Marafa said the ruling was a victory for democracy, the triumph of truth over falsehood and redeemer of the integrity of the judiciary.
He said: “As we all know the APC was unable to conduct primaries in Zamfara State following (Abdulaziz) Yari’s thuggery and violent machinations. With this, lesson has been served that only strict adherence to rule of law and due process will take the country to the next level as being advocated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“This Judgement has shown that the president is religiously sincere with his non-interference stance on function of other arms of government.
“He has further endeared himself to Nigerians and the world for resisting all efforts by Abdulaziz Yari to force him to interfere on the judgement.”
“The acting CJN and the Justices that delivered the judgement have with this judgement, laid the foundation for the redemption of the battered image of the judiciary as painted by the likes of justice Bello Shinkafi.
“I will like to thank the judiciary especially the Justice Tom Yakubu team at the Appeal Court and now the Ag. CJN team in the Supreme Court, the courageous position of INEC, the unflinching support of the people of Zamfara State, my family for their wonderful support and prayers, my well-wishers and admirers in Nigeria and diaspora for their overwhelming support.
“Judiciary remains the last hope of the common man, therefore all hands must be on deck to strengthen it,” Marafa said.
