International lawyer and human rights activist Emmanuel Ogebe has weighed in on Wednesday’s victory by President Muhammadu Buhari over archrival Atiku Abubakar, saying that it was only to be expected.
He said Friday in a statement made available to News Express by e-mail from his base in from Washington, DC, USA:
“Under a regime that arrests judges at midnight, removes judges unconstitutionally, disobeys court orders and impose judges who don’t understand basic terms with impunity, it would take great souls of significant courage and intellectual dexterity to have had a different outcome.
“It appears therefore that Gen. Buhari lost the election but won the Tribunal.
The conquest of all democratic structures is complete.
“Buhari has managed to attend school without certificate, attain the presidency without election and win at a tribunal without adducing evidence.
“He will go down as the 8th wonder of the world for his ability to achieve the greatest self-promotion, above his betters, with the lowest possible effort.
“With the total abnegation of the will of the people of Nigeria, it won’t be surprising if the senate canonizes Buhari as Supreme Emperor with the joyful affirmation of the judiciary.”
