I have faith in the Chief Justice of this country. She is a woman of integrity. She is a woman who has proved herself time without number. This is another case for her to prove that she sits at the helm of justice in this country. She will ensure that justice is given to all.’’
He called on the people of the state, especially the members of the PDP to be law abiding and go about their normal duties without breaching the peace, saying; “I will urge every one of you to hold your peace. Hold your peace because I know there are still men and women of goodwill in this country.
