•Political activist, Timi Frank

Comrade Timi Frank, political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has warned hailers and beneficiaries of Supreme ruling in the appeal filed by Atiku Abubakar that they may become tomorrow’s victim of the court in the near future.

He was reacting to the judgement which upheld the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari, describing it as “a show of shame by the judiciary.”

The political activist in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja on Thursday declared that the Waziri Adamawa Atiku Abubakar will remain a true hero of democracy in Nigeria despite the ruling.

He dismissed the ruling in derisive terms, dubbing “a daylight robbery in the history of Nigeria. It is an embarrassment and a total show of shame as other countries will be laughing at our judiciary”.

Frank, who thanked Atiku’s supporters at home and abroad, believe that what transpired at the Supreme Court was a coup against democracy.

“It was a well-scripted drama. The evil agenda was perfected before General Buhari left the country in pretence. It was a collaboration between the presidency and the Supreme Court. Most Nigerians were shocked at the speed with which the panel dismissed the case because the judgement came as a surprise to them.

“Nigerians will recall that I exposed the handpicked names of the panel members two days before Justice Tanko made it public. But surprisingly and shamelessly, the anti-democratic forces, despite the exposure still went ahead with the handpicked list. They have sold their consciences to the devil.

“The current apex court has taken the country far backwards in the justice administration and it will take the mercy of God for all the actors in this sham to escape the hottest part of hell.

“This is a judgement that posterity will never forgive all those who sat on it and allowed themselves to be compromised. All those who allowed themselves to be used shall fully receive their reward.

“It will be on record that certain Justices had the opportunity to right the wrong but decided otherwise.”

Frank, who expressed joy in the law of posterity, said unavoidably all those who are gloating today in the injustice done to Atiku Abubakar, will have their days with posterity in the near future.

“It is not all about Atiku Abubakar, he can not go hungry. It is about the future of young Nigerians. If Nigerians will continue to sit back and refuse to fight for their rights, the obvious hunger, poverty, insecurity, unemployment, incompetence hands in government and all other problems facing the country will not voluntarily disappear,” Timi Frank warned.

He, however, called on Nigerians not to fold their hands any longer, adding that “all democratic institutions like National Assembly, Judiciary and others built by former leaders have been destroyed under the current administration of General Muhammadu Buhari.” (Daily Independent)
