The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has warned politicians to always respect the decision of the judiciary.
The former Lagos State Governor made this known on Monday while speaking to newsmen after the valedictory court session at the Supreme Court, in honour of Justice Amiru Sanusi, who retired after clocking 70.
News Nigeria reports that Tinubu said the judiciary was an important pillar in the existence of democracy.
According to the APC chieftain, those who lose at the court of law should try again, adding that politicians must not win always.
Tinubu said: “Yes, some people are bound to succeed and some will fail (in court). Reasonableness and honesty; integrity and the character of the Judiciary have always been reflected in their judgments.
“That is what we signed up to as a democratic nation. We should not tarnish the reputation of the Judiciary when its decision goes against us.
“Life is difficult. Judgment and perfection are of God Almighty. And so, if you notice an error in a way and what you perceived as an error and did not favour you, you should try again. You must not be a winner at every game.
“We will continue to promote the Judiciary as an important pillar in the sustenance of our democratic dispensation. We have chosen democracy and the Judiciary is a very important arm of the government. We must give the Bench the necessary support.”
