Galadima while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today accused the President of intimidating and muzzling the judiciary, he stated this while reacting to claims that some “friends of this government” are trying to manipulate cases in court.
He also attacked the President for failing to sign the Electoral Amendment Bill despite being passed by the National Assembly weeks to the 2019 general election.
Galadima stated that the decision of the president not to sign the bill is due to the plan of the presidency to rig the election, a decision which caused disagreement between the executive and legislature.
“This government is intimidating the judiciary. You have heard in the social and print media of certain friends of this government visiting judges, trying to mould their opinion on the cases before them.”
“We have the head of a government who believes that he will first accuse you and it will be your duty to prove yourself innocent.”
“There is no place, no country in the world where you are accused and you prove yourself innocent. The President has consistently stood on this promise and now that he has the complete judiciary under his armpit and the National Assembly inside the pocket, we Nigerians are in trouble.”
