Okutepa who recently refused been part of APC’s defence team in the legal battle between INEC, APC vs Labour Party, said Nigeria needs deliverance.

He cited a 2018 case in which a Supreme Court ruling that mandated a certain Friday Makama be paid his salary allowances after an unjust suspension, was blatantly disregarded.

Okutepa said this in tweet:

“Disobedience of court orders is normal in Nigeria. Many orders of our courts are always not obeyed. In 2018, the Supreme Court made orders that Hon Friday Sani Makama be paid all his salary and allowances following his unlawful suspension from Kogi State House of Assembly.

“That order remains disobeyed till date. There are many other orders that lawyers can point out. Orders that INEC should allow for inspection of electoral materials made by the court of Appeal for the just concluded presidential election is not being obeyed.

“Nobody respect the law of Nigeria. Nigeria is a lawless society. Like satanic agents, it gives people and institutions joy to be lawless. There are no consequences for disobedience. That is why impunity regns in geometric proportions in Nig. Nig needs help and deliverances.
