Mess in judiciary is reason people who should be in jail run for elections –Ali Baba



Comedian Ali Baba
Ace comedian and motivational speaker, Ali Baba has weighed in on the alleged corrupt practices of Nigerian judges following the arrest of some influential men of the bench over the weekend.
The humour merchant who took to his Instagram page to bare his mind said that the mess in the judiciary is the reason people who should be in jail run for elections.
“What is not good is very bad… the mess in the judicial system is the reason people who should be in jail are allowed to run for elections, become governors, senators and even determine the fate of our country. That is why people whose properties… I mean all their properties, should be confiscated and jailed to boot, are all walking around like mini gods.
“If it were overseas, would anyone who diverted monies that were meant to prosecute a war, and used same for personal goals, while the soldiers who were at the battle front were being killed and their wives widowed, be asking for human right cover? After you caused human lives to be lost… if there is proof that a judge was corrupt, he loses his immunity… no negotiations. Do you know how many people are walking free today because of the corrupted judiciary?” He asked.
Continuing, Ali Baba noted that many people have been affected by unfavourable judgments by corrupt judges and anyone who has been found guilty should be arrested.
“People who were paid to provide services but did not. People who are in office because of a faulty judicial process? Do you know how many pensioners died because one man who caused their deaths, was awarded a plea bargain? Define perpetual injunction? People are in jail for a case in America, but the people who were involved in the same case that got them jailed, are party chieftains, in Nigeria!

“People who never supplied one litre of Petroleum product but collected subsidies… if there is evidence against the judges, arrest all of them! Some SANs that are shouting now may just be the ones who gave the judges money. That’s how they will be frustrating young lawyers who are on the verge of winning a career enhancing case. They will bribe the case in their Favour. Thereby killing the young lawyer’s passion and trust in the judiciary!”
