The chairman of the senate committee on information and public affairs, Eyinnaya Abaribe has said that the Supreme Court cannot stop the national assembly from performing its role of amending the constitution. He said this in reaction to the order of the supreme court that status quo be maintained on the crisis of constitution amendment between the Executive and the national assembly.
President Jonathan had earlier gone to the supreme court for an interpretation of the limitations of the powers of the national assembly after refusing to accent to the amendment of the constitution. The president had hinged his refusal to accent to the 4th alteration bill of the 1999 constitution on the fact that the amendment had virtually stripped him of his powers.
Abaribe said that the ‘supreme court is wrong. The law does not allow one arm of the government to stop another arm of government from performing its duties. The Supreme Court cannot stop us from legislating and if they say that the Supreme Court is stopping us from making laws, it is misleading and it amounts to misreading the powers of the Supreme Court.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
