Reacting to the tribunal's judgement 48 hours after, Ezekwesili, a supporter of Obi, seemed to subtly criticise Pastor Paul Adefarasin, a Lagos-based cleric, who recently told Nigerians that it's time to “move on”. The ex-minister wrote on her verified X (formerly Twitter) handle on Friday, September 8: “The #PEPTJudgement is rightly being contested by the petitioners who have headed to the final arbiter, the Supreme Court.
“Democracy belongs to Citizens, not politicians and regulators, no matter how entrenched they may be. “So #AllEyesOnTheJudiciary is still a thing, until the entire Constitutional Process is exhausted. Liberating society and people from an entrenched and perverse political culture is never a dash. Stand on.” Tribunal: Adefarasin tells Nigerians to ‘move on' Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Pastor Adefarasin told Nigerians to move on from their past while using the Saul and David reference from the Bible. He stated this in his recent viral sermon on social media, leaving the cleric to suffer a backlash from netizens.
