Onuesoke hails Kenya’s Supreme Court judgement on presidential poll
By Festus Ahon
ASABA-FORMER Delta State Governorship aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has hailed the supreme court judgement, which ordered that the Presidential election in the country be re-conducted within 60 days, following the irregularities and widespread post election violence in Kenya.
Onuesoke, who spoke to Journalists at the International Headquarters of Onuesoke Foundation in Warri, Delta State, said the judgment “marks a new dawn in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
“The Supreme Court ruling in Kenya signifies a new dawn in Nigeria and Africa. It marks a re-birth of Judicial independence. This will help to put an end to the sit-tight syndrome common with most African Leaders.”
Onuesoke who is a Environmental crusader and analyst, said: “The Judiciary remains the last hope of the common man and Africa Judicial System must not be left behind in discharging its duties without fear or favour. Gone are those days when incumbent leaders pocket the judiciary”.
While congratulating the good people of Kenya on the historical judgement, he called on them to be law abiding and shun violence.
He said; “I call on the good people of Kenya to go about their normal duties and shun violence. Avoid being used by politicians to hit up the polity”
“Nigeria’s former President Goodluck Jonathan also voluntarily conceded to defeat to the present ruling APC Government by President Mohammadu Buhari.
“The recent supreme court judgment in Nigeria sacking Ali Modu Sheriff as PDP Chairman and Kenya’s Supreme Court ruling have now set a precedence that must be followed by other Africa Countries. All these signifies one thing; a re-awakening and a new dawn in Africa.
“African Leaders must respect the rule of law. They must respect the sanctity of the Judicial system”.
