  1. I don’t even know what type of judiciary we have in Nigeria, how can you sack the Governor because of his Deputy, you can sack the deputy and order the party to produce new as seen in Bauchi state 1999. But due to the power you had you just makes the judgement without looking into it. And thinks of the it’s consequences. Now look at what you have caused because of your idiot actions, even you safe has to face trial.

  2. Comment: I just imaging that supreme Court in Nigeria don’t even care about precedent Adamu muazu case is the same with Lyon but the head of the judges is biase her husband is a party man and she work according to directive not mind the consequences and forget about integrity anyway please the judiciary should note that people voted for party as the case may be and not deputy with bayelsas case judiciary in this nation is not sincere .
