Tribunal Judgement: ‘I didn’t expect justice’ – Charly Boy
Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, a maverick singer and supporter of Peter Obi, the Labour Party's presidential candidate, said he was not expecting justice from the Presidential Election Petition Court.
According to The Daily Post, the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja ruled on Wednesday that President Bola Tinubu was not found guilty in the United States and that he did not require a majority of votes in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to be elected president, contrary to the claims made in the petitions filed by the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
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 judgment showed that Nigerians are not yet tired of suffering.
He wrote, “I didn’t expect justice. But I have a strong feeling that we never really tire of suffering. 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.’ Be like, say we're never ready.”
