Some legal practitioners have pledged to defend Nigeria’s constitution and sovereignty for free against persons attempting to undermine the powers of the President and efforts of the Service Chiefs.
This vow is following the call for the sack of the Service Chiefs by the spokesperson of the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) Ikenga Ugochinyere.
The group vowed to rise up in “defence of the letters of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and other laws of the land, defend our selfless men and women who on daily basis risk their life whilst we are asleep”.
The groups, under the aegis of Patriotic Nigerian Lawyers (PNL) and Concerned Citizens, warned paid saboteurs to stop taking Nigeria for a ride.
The Executive Secretary of the group, Barrister Abdulmalik Alfa, described the suit calling for the sack of the Service Chiefs as an “exercise in futility”.
He added that Ugochinyere’s actions isn’t surprising owing to his known alliance with the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and utter desperation with other “enemies” of the country.
However, the legal practioners, welcomed the CUPP spokesperson to meet them in court and assured that neither Mr. President nor the Security Chiefs would be distracted by his paymasters’ antics.
Patriotic Nigerian Lawyers assure Ugochinyere that Nigerians will meet him in court to ensure that neither Mr. President nor the Security Chiefs are distracted by the antics of his paymasters and will neither be stampeded by him.
‘’Nigerians already know him and his associates, he can be assured that very selfless and patriotic Nigerian lawyers will rise up in Defence of the letters of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) and other laws of the land to defend our selfless men and women who on daily basis risk their life whilst we are asleep,’’ they vowed.
