Punch reports that the All Progressives Congress (APC) chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has denied calling for the probe ofSupreme Court justices. Oyegun said he merely expressed shock at the court’s ruling, not that he said justices should be probed. This is coming on the heels of his comments over the court’s ruling upholding the election of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike. Oyegun who expressed shock at the judgement said:
“I still find the judgment on the Rivers State governorship election totally astonishing. There is something fundamentally wrong in the Judiciary. We have lost very important resource-rich states to the PDP. No matter how crude oil prices have fallen, it is still the most important revenue earner for the country. There is obviously something fundamentally wrong in Rivers state which needs to be investigated and addressed.”
Following his Oyegun’s comments, the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has also called on Nigerians to pray for the APC chairman.
