The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) youths have warned the All Progressives Congress (APC) to perish the thought of trying to allegedly manipulate the judiciary to remove Oyo State governor, Seyi Makinde.
The youths, under the aegis of PDP South South Youth Vanguard, said that they have watched with keen interest what played out in the state during the appeal court judgement.
The youths, in a statement by its National Chairman, James Efe Akpofure, said they could detect the “hands of Esua, the voice of Jacob,” in the entire scenario that played out during the appeal case, where the judiciary couldn’t stand its ground and pronounce judgement.
The youths cautioned APC to stop any plan to gag or manipulate the judiciary to do its bidding as doing so will only ridicule the laws of the land and make the country a laughing stock before the comity of nations.
“The idea of manipulating, harassing and intimidating the judiciary to subvert the will of the people in Oyo State will not work. The people have spoken through their votes.
“We will advise the APC to perish the thought of trying to tinker with the will of the people. What the APC did during the appeal court judgment is not hidden from us. We watch with keen interest how the judges, maybe, because of intimidation, harassment or fear of APC couldn’t pronounce judgement.
“We are making it clear to the APC that their plan to bulldoze their way into Oyo State Government House will not work, as the people are ready for their antics. They should feel the pulse of the people if they really have their interest at heart.”
