After the Supreme Court judgment declaring Bola Tinubu as the President, the Labour Party said it had resorted to the ‘masses court’.
The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council spokesman, Yunusa Tanko, said this while reacting to the court’s ruling on Thursday.
The party spokesman lamented that the apex court turned a deaf ear to the party’s pleas, adding that they are resorting to the “masses court”.
He said that the party had brought the case beyond reasonable doubt and frowned at the court’s decision to pay a deaf ear to the pleas of the party.
“As far as we are concerned, we have brought out our cases beyond reasonable doubt, but the court chose to look at the other side and turn a deaf ear to our plea. And they have taken their decision.
“As democrats, we will not do anything otherwise but rather resort to the masses’ court — the public and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. They can analyse this judgment vis-a-vis what they are facing at the moment and what’s the credibility of the leadership already enthroned,” Tanko said.
He added that the party will remain law-abiding while following the dictates of democracy.
“We’ll continue to be law-abiding and follow the dictates of democracy. Don’t forget that democracy also gives room for people to speak on issues if they feel they are being offended. So we have done our bit and we will leave this particular issue now to the masses’ court,” he said.
