Must read

The Acting National Chairman of New Nigeria People’s Party, (NNPP), Alhaji Abba Kawu Ali has advised governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state to allow judiciary in the state to work.

Ali expressed grave concern about what he termed an attempt by Abiodun to interfere with the works of the judiciary in the state.

He made these declarations in a statement made available to our correspondent on Tuesday.

Ali while speaking, maintained that any attempt to interfere with the judicial process can lead to anarchy within the state.

He added that the party has seen the hands of Abiodun in the attempt to interfere in the works of the judiciary in the state.

Ali said, “We want to draw the attention of Nigerians and indeed the whole world to the ongoing efforts by the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, to desecrate the temple of Justice which has the consequences of engendering anarchy, which Nigeria can ill afford now.

“We are using this medium to advise Governor Dapo Abiodun to leave Ogun State judiciary to work without undue interference to be able to dispense justice without fear or favour”.

The emphasized the commitment of the party to the rule of law and called on Governor Dapo Abiodun to refrain from interfering in judicial proceedings concerning its activities.

The NNPP Chairman shed light on a series of events that led to the expulsion of the party’s former chairman in Ogun State, Comrade Sunday Olaposi Oginni, and subsequent actions taken by both parties.

Ali detailed how NNPP officials, accompanied by police personnel, attempted to take possession of the party’s state office following Oginni’s expulsion.

He however, said in a dramatic turn of events, Oginni reported a case of “stealing” to the Police, accusing NNPP officials of burgling his office and making away with a significant sum of money.

“The question is, did they enter the office illegally? Could they have ‘stolen’ the money in the presence of the Policemen who accompanied them?”.
