Court case not about me – Tambuwal

Addressing Journalists at the end of the meeting at about 9:15, the National Publicity Secretary of APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said they met to deliberate on the Speaker’s matter and the forthcoming convention of the party.

He said: “We met to deliberate on the issue of the Speaker, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal especially the rough tackles that the PDP led federal government is leveling. But the ground has been softened before the meeting by the ruling of Justice Mohammed who asked that status quo be maintained and that the House cannot reconvene until November 7 when the parties are before him.

“What we did after was to take briefings from all the members and the party in respect of our coming convention and primaries. That is the sum total of our discussions.

“The decision of the court to maintain status quo is welcome and it actually follows the rule of law. It means that the attempt to illegally reconvene at least cannot materialized and every body will have to maintain status quo until November 7.”

Similarly, the Speaker, Tambuwal hailed the court who ordered that status be maintained on the resumption of the House until Friday.

He added that the matter was not about him as an individual but the National Assembly.

“Well, I expected nothing less from the Nigerian judiciary that has over time proven to be judicious…well I think I don’t have to comment on that. Let me avoid that. But I have this to say that this is not about me. It is about the institution of the National Assembly.

It is about our hard earned democracy and I commend lovers of democracy on this country and beyond for their support for the sustenance of our democracy,” he said.
