Former Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi has commended the United Kingdom for respecting the rule of law in the Process & Industrial Developments, P&ID, case.
This is contained in a statement signed by his Media Aide, Michael Jude Nwolisa in Abuja.
The statement explains that the case which was decided in the United Kingdom, shows that the judiciary delivers justice freely and fairly to the people which Nigeria should emulate.
‘This, therefore, offers veritable lessons to Nigerians in general, and our judiciary in particular“.
“I congratulate our dear nation, Nigeria, especially the legal team that handled the major judiciary victory recorded at the United Kingdom Court on Monday in the case against Process & Industrial Developments (P&ID) Limited’.
According to the statement, the LP Presidential candidate notes that ‘Every lawful society is built on a strong system of justice and every democratic society exists on the principle of the rule of law.
“In handling the identity crisis, electoral disputes, and many high corruption cases that have bedevilled our nation, the judiciary must protect our dear nation’s value system” he adds.
‘Nigeria won its bid to overturn an $11 billion damages bill involving the controversial P&ID deal, yet similar, or even greater amounts, have gone unaccounted for in Nigeria with the culprits freely walking the streets”.
“I urge Nigerian public office holders, in different arms of government, to understand that we have no other nation but Nigeria and we all, are bound to work together for the development of our nation”.
“As we have gladly received justice in a foreign land, may we learn to give justice to our countrymen so that our nation can enjoy peace, progress, and unity. A truly just and fair New Nigeria is possible if our judiciary embraces the spirit and message of change”.
