The Peoples Democratic Party has allegedly accused traditional rulers of manipulating the election tribunal in Nasarawa State.
This was made known by the state chairman of the party, Chief Francis Orogu while fielding questions from journalists.
He called on the Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Kashim Shetima, to tore the truthful path of his boss, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The party chairman maintained that traditional rulers in the state were allegedly abandoning their traditional role by dabbling into politics and taking sides on issues bordering on the interest of the entire state, according to the Nigerian Tribune.
“We are aware of the position of the traditional rulers in the state who have taken to side with a political party before, during, and after the last elections. They have vowed that they will use their position to ensure nobody else wins the seat of the governor if not Abdullahi Sule.
“We are not also surprised that they have organized themselves to visit the Vice president to lobby him to influence the decision of the tribunal in favour of Governor Abdulahi Sule.
“Nothing is hidden in this era of digital age where information travels fast; nothing done in secret can no longer be hidden. The traditional rulers claimed the visit was to thank the vice president for appointing their son and Daughter from the state as ministers. Is it the Vice president who appointed the ministers? The Chairman questioned.
“We are aware that these traditional rulers who are former justices have their influences in the judicial world. But we believe God almighty has the final say, too,” the PDP said.
He appealed to the Vice president to be the father to all and not to allow his honourable office to be used to frustrate court proceedings.
