KWHA: Kwara PDP Hails Supreme Court Rulings, Congratulates Agboola, Ilorin South

The Kwara state People’s Democratic Party, PDP has welcomed the ruling of the Supreme Court affirming the victories of Hon. Jimoh Raheem Agboola as duly elected member representing Ilorin South state constituency at the Kwara state House of Assembly.

The Supreme Court while striking out the applications and the Appeal said in unequivocal terms that it lacks jurisdiction to entertain such appeal.

The party in a statement on Monday in Ilorin signed by its state Chairman, Engineer Kola Shittu, commended the apex court in Nigeria for its courage in delivering what it described as timely ruling against legislative impunity in Kwara state.

Engineer Shittu said the ruling had put an end to all impunities and legislative rascalities of those who believe they are more exalted than the law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The ruling of the Supreme Court serves as a huge lesson to politicians, political parties and government’s agencies to eschew impunity and always conduct themselves in a manner that is in tandem with the provision of the law.

“The courage displayed by the Supreme Court just like the lower Courts in delivering the ruling at this critical time in our state has also restored the confidence of Kwarans in the institution of the Judiciary and our democratic order.”

“I also want to congratulate Honorable Jimoh Raheem Agboola, the Leader of the Party and Former Senate President, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki CON and all members of our great party, particularly the people of Ilorin South constituency for this remarkable victory.

As a party, this victory is a reward for our patience and the respect for the rule of law that we have been exemplified by our party and it’s candidate who have had to endured so many frustrations and impunity from the ruling government.”

“The Speaker and the clerk should tow the line of reasoning and swear in Agboola immediately to avert the consequences of the outcome of the contempt charges pending against them at the Court of Appeal.”
