Only a fair judgment on Tuesday by the Supreme Court on the Nasarawa State governorship polls can lead to healing in the land, says a group under the auspice of Nasarawa State Youth Coalition on Saturday.

The governorship polls of the state that held 18 March in Nasarawa State is still subject of litigation, now currently at the apex.

As reported, Dr. David Ombugadu, had dragged Governor Abdullahi Sule and the All Progressives Congress to the Apex Court over the governorship poll in the state.

Tribunal headed by Ezekiel Ajayi had sacked governor Abdullahi Sule and appeal court reversed the decision of lower tribunal and declared ruling party the winner of 18th March governorship election in the state.

The appeal by the PDP candidate is expected to be heard by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, January 16, 2024.

Speaking with Journalists on Saturday in Lafia, Leader of the youth group, Barr. Iliya Auna, commended the judgments delivered so far by the Supreme Court, and expressed confidence that the court would do the same justice in the Nasarawa State case.

He urged the Supreme Court to look at the merit of the case, identify with the popular mandate of the people in the interest of peace and unity which the state had been known for over years.

He said, “We are aware of certain individuals who, driven by personal interests and their ill-gotten wealth are determined to upturn the will of our people.

“These individuals believe that their connections with the Apex Court or their ability to buy justice can secure victory for their candidate, while they peddle their selfish hidden agendas on either religion or regional affiliations.

“But we firmly believe in what the Supreme Court stands for and had demonstrated in the various judgments declared on Friday to uphold the integrity of its justices and the tradition of the revered institution of democracy.

“We have faith that the Court will deliver its judgment based on what will re-shape our democracy, and we stand united in our believe that justice will prevail in the Nasarawa State governorship election matter.”

The leader of the Nasarawa State Youth Coalition also applauded President Bola Tinubu for not interfering with the Supreme Court’s rulings thus far, adding that his action of not interfering with the judgments would help to strengthen democracy in the country.
