A non-governmental organization, Face Of Waziri-Nigeria (FOWN), has issued a stern warning of potential civil disobedience if an alleged directive from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to target certain Justices of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal and lawyers of his opponents is executed.
In a statement released by the group’s Director-General, Comrade Bukky Adeniyi, it was claimed that a covert meeting with Tinubu on Friday, July 21, 2023, resulted in the assignment of a group to pursue the PEPT Judges on fabricated charges.
According to Adeniyi, the President’s meeting included Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, the Director-General of the State Security Services, and the Chairman of the ICPC.
“They have a specific instruction to go after the Tribunal Judges and lawyers of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and that of the Labour Party Mr. Peter Obi .
“We are much aware that this is sequel our recent revelation of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s nefarious moves to muzzle the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT), seeing clearly the odds are against him in the case before the tribunal.
“It is pertinent to state that FOWN is quite on tab with the situation at hand and will not rest on our oars to keep Nigerians updated.
“Tinubu’s anti masses moves further lays credence to all we have been saying and if Justice is not served Nigerians will be worse-off thereafter.
“He and his demonic party-APC want to set Nigeria on fire by this new onslaught and we shall not hesitate to ground the country, if any attempt is made on the tribunal justices, lawyers of Alhaji Atiku Abubarka and Mr. Peter Obi.” Adeniyi said.
FOWN maintained that whatever is regarded as sins committed by the said justices in times past, Nigerians have forgiven them for the sake of this important presidential election matter.
