Atiku’s appeal: CUPP alleges manipulation in Supreme Court panel composition
The Coalition of United Political Parties has raised the alarm over alleged manipulation in the composition of the seven-man Supreme Court panel that will hear the appeal of the presidential candidate on the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in respect of the 2019 election.
It claimed that it has intercepted what it called “a secret list” that showed that the age long practice of picking the seven most senior Justices of the Supreme Court for the job will be jettisoned.
The coalition’s national spokesman, Imo Ugochinyere, made the allegation at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.
He said, “We are here to inform Nigerians today that the opposition has intercepted credible intelligence, hardcore intelligence of a last assault on the institution of judiciary represented by the Supreme Court of Nigeria, where there is ongoing perfected desperate attempt by the ruling APC government working with their unrepented friends in judiciary to constitute members of presidential election panel with justices whose only reason of being selected is the guaranteed assurance that no matter what the law says, the President must be returned and affirmed against all known principles of our constitutional governance.
“We have intercepted a secret list of a seven-man panel of the Justices of Supreme Court about to be announced by the Chief Justice of Nigeria in a manner that jettisoned the age-long tradition of selecting the members of the panel on the order of seniority.”
