Maverick singer and supporter of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, has stated that he wasn’t expecting justice from the Presidential Election Petition Court.
Pegars reports that the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja declared on Wednesday that President Bola Tinubu was not convicted in the United States and also declared that he did not need to win 25 per cent of the votes in the FCT to be declared president, as argued by the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, in their petitions.
Justice Haruna Tsammani, head of the five-member bench, said: “The voters in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, were equal to every other voter in the states in Nigeria; hence, Abuja had no special status.”
Reacting via his X page, Charly Boy said the judgement showed that Nigerians are not yet tired of suffering.
He wrote: “I didn’t expect justice. But I have a strong feeling say we never really tire to suffer. Like [Yusuf] Datti said, ‘the fate of the common man doesn’t lie in the hands of the judiciary but in the hands of the common man himself.’ E be like say we never ready.”
