Methodist prelate: Many govs didn’t win elections

 Methodist prelate: Many govs didn’t win elections

Samuel Uche, prelate of the Methodist Church, says many governors did not win their elections but the supreme court gave them victory.

Speaking at a funeral held for Bode Akindele, parakoyi of Ibadanland, in Ibadan, Oyo state, on Friday, Uche said some of the candidates the courts have upheld as winners  are “undeserving.”

“Electoral victories are given to some undeserving candidates through the court of law,” the prelate said.

“There is one political party here in Nigeria, even when you don’t win an election the party would give you victory through the supreme court.

“Many governors are supreme court governors, they didn’t win (their elections) and are not supposed to be there.

“This is lawlessness and that is why I call some of our courts, court of lawlessness.”

The cleric said siphoning of the country’s resources and the growing insecurity is hampering its growth and development.

While paying tribute to the deceased, Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo, said the late Akindele was a cheerful giver and an entrepreneur with “great understanding.”

Makinde said the legacies left behind by the parakoyi of Ibadanland should be sustained.

Akindele died on June 29. He was 87.
