Enugu – Peter Obi, the former Labour Party presidential candidate, has posited that the Nigerian judicial system is weak, compromised, and favours the highest bidder.

Obi made the claim while speaking at Justice Anthony Aniagolu’s Memorial Lecture, which was organised by the family. The event was hosted by Godfrey Okoye University, GOUNI, in Enugu on Tuesday, May 14.

Speaking on the topic, Obi recalled how he won the governorship election in Anambra state and another person was declared the winner. When he approached the court, he got justice.

Peter Obi narrates how judiciary benefitted him

He said he spent three years in court, but justice was served. He recalled how he was impeached and how the court restored him.

According to him, another person was elected after one year, but he went to the Supreme Court “where judges with respect for rule of law,” and he was reinstated to complete his tenure.

Obi said he was lucky then because the judicial system had incorruptible judges, but to Obi, the current system is weak and corruptible.

The former governor of Anambra noted that jurists of this nature were hard to find in present-day Nigeria, adding that “our judiciary is weak and compromised by the executive and highest bidder.”
