A spokesperson for the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Farotimi said he doesn't trust in the judicial system.

The controversial lawyer made the comment on Arist TV Election Programme on Wednesday, February 25 as he reacted to the controversy and irregularity that surrounded the polls.

He noted that those who want to go to court can but he doesn't trust the system.

"Those who believe that our courts are capable of delivering justice will go right ahead and seek justice through that part. But for us we have zero belief that justice can be found in our judicial system."

"It stinks and it will be a little better than but I will be insulting prostitutes, and honest workers if I call our judiciary a brothel. If some people want to go to court. They can go, I have no confidence in it and I have started my position clearly."

"Anyone who wants to challenge me then we can have that discussion from Machina, we can have that discussion from the Akpabio case. We can talk about so many cases so let us just leave that discussion for now."
