Read!: Imo North — Supreme Court reacts as APC accuses judges of supporting PDP.
The Supreme Court replied on Thursday to a petition concerning the Imo North Senatorial bye-election, which was allegedly submitted by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Mai Buni, the APC chairman and governor of Yobe State, reportedly accused Justice Abdul Aboki and two other judges of conspiring to obstruct justice in the case. During court proceedings on Tuesday, Justice Musa Dattijo Mohammed made the petition public.
Mohammed listed himself, Aboki, and Helen Morenikeji Ogunwumiju as the three Justices who have been accused of collaborating with PDP officials.
In a rejoinder on Thursday, Supreme Court Information Director, Fesus Akande, stated that the name of Aboki was not included.
Akande said Aboki “was never mentioned…even though he is on the panel of five Justices hearing the appeal that resulted from the election”.
Noting that Bunu has denied the petition, Akande told litigants and politicians to “be guided by good conscience and decency in all their conducts especially when a case is before a court of competent jurisdiction”.
