Applauding The Abuja High Court Judgment

On Monday, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the capital territory of Nigeria gave an order of perpetual injunction restraining the Federal parliamentarians in the Lower House of the National Assembly who decamped from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) from effecting any leadership change in the House.

The presiding judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola while delivering the judgment lampooned the defected federal law makers. The judge declared that the decampees should resign their seats as the members of the House, since they have decamped to another registered political party.

Considering the happenings in politics in the recent time, one can categorically state that there is no decorum in the Nigeria’s politics, any longer. Political decency has been thrown to the dogs.

Elected public office holders play politics as if it is a children’s picnic. A situation whereby lawmakers including elected governors do not know the essence of their mandate. They display wealth publicly, while their constituents live in penury.

Beside embezzlement of public funds and maladministration, elected public holders are the major cause of various forms of crisis in the country such as election rigging, violence, hunger, crimes and others.

It is very funny seeing lawmakers having benefited from a party whose mandate they rode into power will suddenly abandon their party and move to new one(s). Then after which they castigate their original political party.

The Monday’s court judgment in Abuja, we believe will instill discipline and decorum into our politics. It will further strengthening the nation’s democracy.

Let us use this time to applaud the judgment delivered by Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Abuja Federal High Court, because it will check the “uncivilized” behaviour of some of our politicians in the future. ##
