Court judgments were written in Aso rock during Jonathan’s govt – Senate majority leader‎

The Senate Majority Leader, Ahmed Lawan, on Wednesday said most court rulings during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan were written in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Lawan, a member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said this while reacting to the Supreme Court ruling which affirmed former Kaduna State Governor, Ahmed Makarfi as the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The Senator noted that the ruling by the apex court was an indication that the President Muhammadu Buhari’s government believed in separation of powers.
Lawan maintained that in spite of the ruling, the formr ruling party will continue to remain in “diaspora”.
He said, “Nigerians overwhelmingly and massively took out PDP from the running of this country and PDP will remain in diaspora. All the same, we want to congratulate Nigerians for the kind of judgement that the supreme court gave under this administration.
“During PDP administration, most of the court judgments were written in the villa. This goes to show that this administration believes in separation of powers and believes that our judiciary should remain and continue to be free in what they do.”
