Presidential Election Tribunal: Clarke Speaks On Peter Obi, LP's Chances Of Ousting Tinubu
Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief Robert Clarke has blamed the lawyers of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for his political woes.
He insisted that Atiku, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, has never had a case against President Bola Tinubu, adding that he was ill-advised by his lawyers that he had a chance in court.
The elder statesman argued that Atiku has been fighting with Tinubu for the past 20 years and should have addressed the issue of his certificate before now.
He stated that if Atiku had come to him with his case he would have turned him down irrespective of the amount of money offered.
Clarke stated that he would have advised the former vice president that his case would not be sustained in the Supreme court.
He said this during an interview with Arise TV news.
According to him, Im so happy with the Supreme Court that it analyzed the judgement and showed it very clearly that the problem about criticisms should be laid on the footsteps of the lawyers. I am not happy at all because I hate correcting or chastising senior members of the Bar but what do we have today, 90 per cent of Atiku Abubakars woes were caused by his lawyers. Im sorry to say this. What they should have done 20 years ago, they did not do it.
What they should have done 20 days ago, they did not do it instead because they had enough money to travel to America to collect this and that, and they are now disturbing everybody in Nigeria to show that Atiku has a case. Atiku has never had a case in this matter because he has been fighting President Bola Tinubu for the past 20 years. Is it today he is looking for evidence to fight him?
I, Robert Clarke, would not take a brief from Atiku if he had brought that brief to me. I would have told him that there is no merit in it because the Supreme Court will not hear it, that the matter you want me to go and show the Supreme Court on your behalf cannot be sustained. I will tell him and I will not because of the millions he is going to give me, start running around him to give me a brief that I know will never succeed.
The problem is in the system that allows so much money to flow into the hands of politicians. We, therefore, have to look into the system to make sure that we do not give room, where anybody can manipulate another person and start pretending. Please, let us look at our laws.
