CSO cautions the judiciary, “You Have To Do The Right Things At The Right Time

According to PunchNews, Free Nigeria Movement (FNM), a civil society group, through judges at the Presidential Election Petitions Court (PEPC), has urged the judiciary to be the voice of reason and save Nigeria’s democracy from collapsing.Continue Reading>>>

The group said the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) under its oversight has shown a flagrant disregard for the 2022 Electoral Law and recently developed an ability to weep more than the bereaved by responding to petitions from aggrieved political parties and candidates.

At a briefing with journalists in Abuja yesterday, the group’s convener, Dr.Moses Paul, the judges must uphold the integrity of the judiciary and let Nigeria win.Continue Reading>>>

The group also expressed concern about the timing of the hearing and called for the cases to be completed before a new government takes office.

He said: While they listen to petitions, the conscience of Nigeria will be waiting outside the walls of the courtroom with the statement it will make on their behalf for posterity.

We urge them to do what is right for Nigeria and not for any political party or candidate.

The Chief Justice of Nigeria must ensure that judges have the proper support and independence to rule cases without any interference or inducement.

The judges must look beyond the technical details and base their decision on the path that leaves the best result for the country.

May we state that it is important to note that this is also a process for the Nigerian judiciary in addition to the traditional plaintiffs in this case?

Therefore, the hearing must be conducted in a way that does not offend Nigerians’ sensibilities or shake confidence in the judiciary.

Problems like double nomination by the APC.

We call on the judiciary, through the judges of the Presidential Election Petitions Court (PEPC), to be the voice of reason and save our democracy from collapsing.

Because if we allow the Prof.Mahmoud scam of March 1, 2023, to continue, we will say yes to the barrage of illegalities that will follow, he added.
