PORT HARCOURT— GOVERNOR Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State, has described the  Abuja High Court judgment that sacked the Godspower Ake-led Peoples Democratic party, PDP, executive in the state, as a miscarriage of justice.

He urged the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Aloma Mukhtar, to urgently intervene to redress the alleged defect in the judgment.

Speaking, weekend, through his deputy, Engr. Tele Ikuru, at Government House, Port Harcourt, when Rivers people paid him a solidarity visit, he said it was shocking that the court declared Mr. Felix Obuah and Mr. Ibibia Walter, as duly elected Chairman and Secretary, respectively, of the state chapter of PDP.

He said that the action of the court amounted to what he termed desecration of the temple of justice.

The governor appealed to members of the party in the state to be law abiding, adding that he was shocked that the court awarded victory to Obuah.

He said: “I think, as a nation, we should not allow our judiciary to be smeared. As a nation, we should not allow the judiciary to be something people can toy with. The temple of justice has been desecrated by the judgment.”
