Speaking with newsmen in Abuja at the weekend on the state of the nation, Gabam, who said that President Tinubu should allow the opposition to prevail in his interest, expressed deep concern over conflicting orders coming from the nation’s Judiciary in recent times, citing crises in Rivers and Kano States as an open invitation for anarchy if not checked now.

He added that President Tinubu also needed to put his economic team on their toes to come up with workable solutions to the economic crisis ravaging the land and not how to acquire new aircraft for the Presidential fleets.

According to him, “all is not well in the country, as the opposition, we will continue to speak out, the President should allow the opposition to prevail in own interest

“There is no budget or supplementary budget that was deliberately designed and sent to the national assembly for skill acquisition programmes. People are talking about buying new aircraft. People are changing national anthems within 48 hours. Is that our priority as a nation? The president was trying to defend it. It is indefensible. I don’t think they have economic experts that have the capacity to initiate ideas, economic policies and programmes, creativity, and skills acquisitions that would reduce redundancy and take people off the streets.

“Now you are having a series of crises. Look at what is happening in Kano State. Whatever happens in Nigeria today, you cannot divorce the judiciary from it. If the Judiciary is not careful, it will plunge this country into an abyss.

“There is no justification for judges to make pronouncements that would ignite a crisis in the country. They are the third arm of Government; very sensitive arm of government. Why would the CJN and the NJC sit down and allow judges to be passing out orders, or judgments, that are contrary to the Supreme Court judgment? Is there no discipline? You go through elections, the Judiciary would take it from you and give it to someone that did not win”.
