Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last elections, Atiku Abubakar, has lauded the Supreme Court judgment of Friday May 24, saying justice has prevailed.
He further commended the judges for “putting aside the interests of the powerful and upholding the interests of Nigeria and Nigerians.”
Going religious, Atiku in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, said: “Nothing is as pleasing to the ears of believers as justice being served in the holy month of Ramadan.
“God first, Nigeria second, must be our priority as trustees of the people.
“When justice prevails, the people rejoice, chains are broken, freedom is multiplied and society is enriched.”
The former Vice President expressed the hope that the Supreme Court and “our Lords Justices will let Lady Justice have full reign in other petitions that will come before them;” and that “good conscience, fear of God and the rule of law will prevail.”
The statement said further: “Once again, Atiku Abubakar commends the Supreme Court for siding with justice.
“He congratulates the Governor-elect Hon. Bello Matawalle and the people of Zamfara, who will finally have a government that will address the issues that have made life an ordeal in that great state.
“The storm is over and peace and calm are coming to Zamfara.
“May God bless the Supreme Court of Nigeria. May God bless Zamfara State and may God bless Nigeria, now and forever.”
