Reacting to the verdict of the Supreme Court Via a series of tweet

The former Vice President said “ It is said that the Supreme Court is not final because it is infallible, but that it is infallible because it is final.”

“ While I believe that only God is infallible everywhere, and only Nigerians are infallible in our democracy, I must accept that the judicial route I chose to take, as a democrat, has come to a conclusion.”

“ Whether justice was done, is left to the Nigerian people to decide. As a democrat, I fought a good fight for the Nigerian people. I will keep on fighting for Nigeria and for democracy, and also for justice.”

“ I thank all Nigerians who have stayed the course since the commencement of trial in the petition on the February 23 presidential election.

The judgement is part of democratic challenges we must face as a nation.”

“ The Nigerian judiciary, just like every estate of our realm, has been sabotaged & undermined by an overreaching and dictatorial cabal, who have undone almost all the democratic progress the @OfficialPDPNig and its administrations nurtured for sixteen years, up until 2015.”

“ Can Nigeria continue like this? Recently, former United States Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, averred that Nigeria had rolled back the democratic gains she made in 2015.”

“ I was a democrat, I am a democrat, and I will always continue to be a democrat. May God bless Nigeria. -AA”
