A Constitutional Lawyer, Dr Kayode Ajulo, says the Supreme Court judgment which restored Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, as the Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Yobe North Senatorial district is valid and sound.
The legal practitioner made this known while reacting to the judgment in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday amidst the controversy that has trailed the verdict.
He said most of the counter comments targeted against the Supreme Court’s decision under reference were misconceived, particularly from the perspective of the law.
The Supreme Court had, on Feb 6 declared Lawan as the Senatorial candidate for Yobe North in a three-against-two split judgment of its five-member panel, led by Justice Chima Nweze.
The apex court in its judgment voided and set aside the decision of the Federal High Court and Court of Appeal which had earlier confirmed Bashir Machina as the candidate.
