‘Any attempt to destroy judiciary an invitation to another Sudan’, says Keyamo

On Monday, Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Productivity, took to Twitter to warn against attempts to disrupt the judicial processes in the ongoing election tribunal cases.

He cautioned that such actions could invite crisis into the country, particularly those who are acting as “watchdogs” over the judiciary with respect to the pending Election Petitions. Keyamo, who served as the campaign spokesperson for President-elect Bola Tinubu in the just-concluded 2023 elections, labeled such tactics as cheap.

The tweets partly read, “The Tribunals and Courts should decide these cases devoid of any kind of intimidation from any of the parties and their supporters.”

“I call on all supporters of the APC and all patriots to remain calm and be respectful towards the judiciary and be ready at all times to respect and defend the judiciary and our constitution no matter which way the wind blows. Any attempt to destroy the judiciary (as these characters are bent on doing) is an invitation to another ‘Sudan’.

“Well, just as they often issue the empty boast that they are a different ‘movement’ and the judiciary should not ‘mess’ with them, they will soon realise that the judiciary is also a different kind of institution with which they cannot ‘mess’.”
