Defend Nigeria’s Dignity, Group Urges Election Tribunal Judges

The Free Nigeria Movement (FRN) has urged the five judges at the Presidential Election Tribunal to uphold their integrity and defend the dignity of Nigeria in their decisions.

Speaking on behalf of the group on Monday at a briefing in Abuja, Dr. Moses Paul, said the judges stand at a historical crossroad and their actions and inactions will have a great impact on the nation.

According to him, many Nigerians are hopeful that the judges will demonstrate their commitment to upholding the rule of law and ensuring justice for all.

Dr Paul said, “The judiciary in Nigeria, as we believe, is on the cause of redemption to expunge all forms of public doubt and suspicion of trading justice in our courts.

“While we accept the modus of facts and application of relevant laws to same by the judges of the Presidential Election Petition Court, we call go them to uphold their integrity to defend the dignity of our country in all their decisions.

“The integrity of the judiciary must be upheld in all decisions and the processes must be transparent. That is what Nigerians will accept. Anything other than this will amount to an installment by the judiciary.”

The civil society group also called on the Supreme Court to expedite action and hear the case of double nomination of Kashim Shettima on its merit.

“We also call on Nigerians to stand up and demand justice,” he added.
