This is a reply to the article written by Barrister First Baba Isa.
The justice of the Supreme Court wouldn’t deviate from the principle of est nehilo nehilfit – you cannot place something on nothing and expect it to stand; the whole edifice must collapse … See: Benjamin Leonard Macfoy Vs. United Africa Company Ltd, reported on the 27th day of November 1961.
It will definitely end in favor of he who had the authentic party electorates vote him at primaries.
For opposition parties, our laws are trite that parties must succeed on the strength of their cases and not to capitalize on the weaknesses of the adverse party.
The Court is not a father Christmas that would avail you what you never worked for. So, for me, I do not see the possibility of the opposition party candidate, succeeding at the tribunal, having failed woefully in the field of contest.
For 2023, young people’s consciousness is building up and it can only get stronger. We may not have reached the promised land but we left Egypt a while ago.
Before 2015, who could confidently say that Sen. Ben Ayade would be Governor of Cross River State without more? Was it not only Cross River North that could sparingly sing for the “food bank”?
I see no magic in the struggle for liberation and emancipation if not to dare. Martin Luther King Jr. saw the promise land, he clearly stated that he may not get there with the black race … Jarigbe has commenced the fight, he may end at 2023 (God forbid) but I see the sudden enthusiasm and conscious political reawakening amongst young people rising beyond 2023.
Agree with me or argue with your keyboards, evil dynasties are crumbling, giving way to clear headed, passionate, selfless and progressive minds.
I say no more.
