INEC Has Failed, Aggrieved Parties Should Go To Court – Ahmad Gumi

Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, advised aggrieved political parties to approach the court to express their grievances.

Gumi stated this while reacting to the claims that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) manipulated the electoral process.

According to Gumi, INEC has failed Nigerians, adding that the electoral body failed to follow proper procedure in conducting the presidential election.

The likes of the Labour Party (LP), Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and others vowed to challenge the electoral process.

Gumi in a statement posted on his Facebook account asked the aggrieved parties to seek redress in court.

The statement reads, “I implore the opposition parties as an obligatory national duty to go to the election tribunal and up to the Supreme Court to reestablish the supremacy of law and to teach our younger generation the value of resolving disputes through legal means rather than violence.

“The polity is already very tense, and any government that lacks credibility cannot suppress the people, especially at this troubling time when every region has armed agitating groups that are willing to exploit political instability to augment their rebellion.

“Let the entire litigation process run its course. It has a great deal of importance for our national health.

“The I.N.E.C has failed the nation by sowing more distrust and suspicion because it failed to follow its own guidelines in conducting last week’s elections.

“Fortunately, that is the first step in seeking legitimacy; therefore aggrieved parties should go to court.

“We sincerely hope the courts of law this time will also prove its worth and uphold the truth. It’s the last hope that Nigerians can resort to, otherwise, it will lead to chaos that no other force can contain as the nation is already polarized along religious and tribal fault lines.

“Nigeria is our only country; we have to save it from calamity by acting bravely, honestly free from political hypocrisy that requires putting thorny issues under the rug.

“May Allah protect us from all tribulations and give this nation peace and tranquility. Amin”.
