Shehu Sani, a former senator from Kaduna Central, has called the judiciary “the coffin of democracy in Nigeria.”
Sani was responding to the ruling of the Appeal Court that removed Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang from office.
The ruling of the governorship election tribunal, which had affirmed Mutfwang’s election as the state’s governor, had been overturned by the Appeal Court.
The court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a new certificate of return to Dr. Nentawe Yilwatda, the nominee for governorship from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In response, Sani stated that the appellate court’s decision was regrettable and intolerable.
Posting on X, Sani wrote: “The Court of Appeal judgement against the electoral victory of the Plateau State Governor is unfortunate, unacceptable, and condemnable.
“A broad daylight heist of the will of the people. The bench is becoming the coffin of democracy.”
