Former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has reacted to the Supreme Court judgment after dismissing a suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to disqualify the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, and his vice president-elect, Kashim Shettima, over alleged double nomination.
Omokri said that after the Supreme Court judgment, ‘he prays that God will give Tinubu the wisdom to govern Nigeria well’ and the May 29 inauguration can take place
TheNewsGuru.com reports that PDP had alleged Shettima, who had double nomination as the senatorial candidate for Borno Central Senatorial District and vice-presidential candidate under the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Delivering judgment, Justice Adamu Jauro slammed a fine of N2m on PDP for ‘pokenosing’ in the internal affairs of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the conduct of its primary elections and nomination of its candidates.
Omokri via his Twitter handle said: “Well, the Supreme Court has spoken, and we must accept that they are final, not because they are correct, but because they are final. The inauguration will go on. I pray that God will give Tinubu the wisdom to govern Nigeria well until the final determination of our main suit, which we pray the PDP wins. Whether or not we win, we shall continue to wish our country and its leaders well, even though we are disappointed”.
The apex court held that the PDP’S suit praying disqualification of Tinubu and Shetima on ground of alleged double nomination by Shetima was grossly lacking in merit and dismissed it.
