I won 10 out of 11 cases in court without bribing judges— Sen. Alfa




Court reinstalled Senator for Kogi East in the National Assembly, Isaac Alfa, has said that the federal government “need to apply surgical operations in several areas if Nigeria is to achieve economic growth exponentially”.

Alfa was sworn-in last Tuesday by the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki to replace Senator Ali Atai Aidoko who was finally sacked by the court barely three months to the end of 8th National Assembly.

Speaking with journalists yesterday in Abuja, he noted that these four years have been a learning curve for the government, the National Assembly and the polity.

Alfa, a former Chief of Air Staff, specifically stressed the need for the federal government to focus its anti-corruption fight on sever re-organization of the Police Force.

He said: “The Police as constituted presently is not only undisciplined right down the line, inadequately trained. The Police Service Commission as presently constituted is absolutely powerless.

“If the Police is up and doing, we won’t need the SSS (State Security Service) to go after the Judges, we won’t need the military to secure elections, lawyers won’t charge hundreds of millions or billions to compromise the Judges who are representatives of Almighty God on earth

“My case went through 34 Judges and I won 10 out of 11 judgments; with the only one won by my opponent reversed by the same Appeal Court. I never gave a kobo to any Judge in my three-and-half years ordeal. I know that no system is perfect but there are some Nigerian Judges today that are absolutely incorruptible. God passed my case through many of them and may God bless them”.

On his coming back to the upper legislative chamber, the lawmaker said he bear no grudge against anybody over his travails, but expressed grateful to God for vindicating him at last.

Alfa also thank and give credit to the Senate leadership for upholding justice at last, saying “it has never been about what I can benefit personally from the Senate”.

“By the special grace of Almighty God, I rose to become the Chief of Air Staff, the largest in Africa, and one of the most operationally powerful today. I was a member of the PRC (Provisional Ruling Council), which collectively was then number three after the Head of State and Chief of General Staff. So, Senate was a service to my people, bringing this large tribe to where it ought to stay.

“Yes, the battle to retain my mandate wasn’t easy especially when I had to fund the litigation from my pocket with absolutely no help from anywhere. Every politician knows that political litigation is not cheap. But I was determined so that my people’s decision must count whenever they decide to field their choice; that nobody should come from outside by any other name to impose their decision on us.

“Now, my people feel liberated and are encouraged to insist on their choice, as I have shown that with God on your side, the Judiciary will give you justice”, he stressed.
