According to him, despite the ups and downs, the good and bad circumstances which Nigeria is passing through, the country has recorded tremendous success and “I intend to disagree with those who have said that there is nothing to celebrate as Nigeria is a failed state.
“All developed nations we see in the world today have passed through the process of challenges, while some are even worse than Nigeria and they have overcome it.
” I strongly believe that Nigeria will overcome its woos one day. All we need is collective existence to be able to manage our diversity as a nation because there is much more to achieve being together than apart. We need to be patriotic”, Pwul stated.
While commenting on judgment recently passed by Justice Ishaku Kunda of Plateau High Court between PDP and PLASIEC, which prevented PDP from participation in the forthcoming October 9, 2021, Local Government elections, Garba Pwul SAN, acknowledged that the verdict is a landslide victory for democracy.
He stressed that APC or PLASIEC didn’t sue PDP to court, but, rather it is PDP that sue PLASIEC.
“The blame must be led on the shoulders of PDP itself as a result of their in-house wrangling.
“PDP should not complain of lack of representation because they refused to do the needful, therefore should have themselves to blamed for not keeping their house in order”.
