THE Chief Judge of Lagos last week set up election tribunals to try cases which are fallouts of the just concluded local council election in the twenty (20) LG and fifty seven (57) LCDA. Another calculated and deliberate plan to confer legitimacy on the atrocious, criminal proceedings of the July 22 charade called election which was intentionally designed to destabilize the hopes and aspiration of Lagosians
Mark Twain said, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness” That is why having watched the dastardly, wicked and satanic preemptive forceful overthrow of democracy as expressed by the desperate ruling party in Lagos “APC” during the last July 22 Local Council election and supported by the actions and inactions of the leadership and staff of LASIEC as well as the Nigerian Police, we are in no doubt as to the fact that the purported setting up of tribunals by the chief judge of Lagos State who incidentally is a sister to the chairman of LASIEC (Lagos State “independent) electoral commission is nothing but a farce deliberately advocated to legitimize the kidnapping of candidates, stealing of ballot boxes and shooting and maiming of poor vulnerable candidates who participated against the “evil wind’ called APC
What would have been an historic affair in the life of our dear State with possibility of leaping over the juxtapositions of current paroxysm was made a wish wash melodrama by LASIEC beclouding ordinary human calculations. Indeed an exercise that should by all means have resulted into a glowing timeless light of progress for the state was thrown into the dust of political delinquency and criminality spiced up by gangster-ism and. absolute thuggery
We therefore believe that going before any of the judges assigned to each TRIBUNAL will definitely end up in futility because unfortunately, the progressive judges within the fold of the Lagos State judiciary were not enlisted for this noble cause for obvious reasons.
LABOUR PARTY THEREFORE CALLS ON ALL THE TEN OTHER OPPOSITION POLITICAL PARTIES TO BOYCOTT THE TRIBUNALS as anything contrary will bring no good
For all intent and purposes, IT IS AN ARRANGEEEE ELECTION WITH ARRANGEEEEE TRIBUNALS. DO NOT BE FOOLED. This is an ADVOCACY programmed to deceive the people, indeed an advocacy tailored towards morbidity even before it begins
DO NOT CONFER LEGITIMACY ON THEIR DAYLIGHT ROBBERY OF THE PEOPLES MANDATE
ALUTA CONTINUA !!!
