The Maze and the Whig are symbols of authority for the parliament and the judiciary arm respectively in every complete democratic system of governance.The parliament uses the maze as a symbol of authority to enact its decision, the judiciary arm employs the Whig in doing the same.

Recent, Tai Solarin University of Education student union has depicted a titanic clash between the Maze (parliament) and the Whig (judiciary). The Tasued Student Union parliamentary council at its fourth parliamentary session suspended the entire judicial council for an alleged list padding. In an interview with one of the Senator, he said that the student union president com. Sanni Rahmon submitted eight names to the parliament for ratification which the parliament ratified and the president chose the chief judge in person of Oguntade Khadijat. 

The winds of tsunami started to blow when the chief judge added two non-ratified name to the list and give them portfolios, a decision that met the other side of a smile from the parliamentarians.

However, the chief judge Justice Oguntade Khadijat fought back by releasing a press statement in which she said ” The parliament has no right to suspend a whole arm”, she officially rejected the decision of the parliament, she also claimed that though the parliament makes the law while the judiciary interprets the law thus an interpreting body should not fall under the whims and caprices of such disciplinary actions.

A battle of supremacy has kicked off between the parliament and the judiciary arm of government.

Tasuedites are watching and are eager to know “Ta lo ni gbogbo agabra”.
