Former Kaduna Central senator Shehu Sani has described the judiciary as the coffin of democracy in Nigeria.
Sani was reacting to the Appeal Court judgement that sacked Governor Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau State.
The Appeal Court had set aside the judgement of the governorship election tribunal that upheld the election of Mutfwang as governor of the state.
The court declared Dr Nentawe Yilwatda of the All Progressives Congress (APC) the winner of the governorship election while ordering the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a fresh certificate of return to him.
Reacting, Sani said the verdict of the appellate court was unfortunate and unacceptable.
Posting on X, Sani wrote:
“A broad daylight heist of the will of the people. The bench is becoming the coffin of democracy.”
