PEPT: Military, Police Warn Protesters As Tribunal Delivers Judgement Tomorrow by Kuginzi: 5:23am On Sep 05, 2023
Ahead of the delivery of the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja on Wednesday, the military and the police have said they will not condone any unlawful action by troublemakers.

The Director, Defence Information, Brig. Gen. Tukur Gusau, warned those who might be planning to cause violence on that day to discard the idea.

The tribunal, in a statement on Monday, announced it would on Wednesday deliver judgment on the petitions challenging the declaration of Bola Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The Chairman of the INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, had on March 1 declared Tinubu the president-elect because his party scored the majority of votes cast in the poll.

The tribunal justices who will deliver the verdict on Wednesday are the Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Haruna Tsammani; Justice Stephen Adah of the Court of Appeal (Asaba Division), Justice Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf , Court of Appeal (Asaba Division), Justices Moses Ugo (Court of Appeal, Kano) and Abba Mohammed of the Ibadan Division of the Court of Appeal..

In the 2023 poll, the former Lagos State governor polled 8.8 million to defeat the Peoples Democratic Party standard bearer, Atiku Abubakar, who scored 6.9 million, Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, who polled 6.1 million votes, and 15 other candidates.

However, five of the 18 political parties that participated in the elections turned to the court to contest the declaration by the electoral body.

Leading the charge against Tinubu’s electoral triumph are Atiku and Obi who have asked the tribunal to nullify the ex-Lagos governor’s victory in the February 25 presidential election.

Besides the PDP and the LP, other aggrieved parties included the Action Alliance, Action People’s Party, and the Allied Peoples Movement.

In the course of the tribunal proceedings, the five-member panel headed by Justice Tsammani dismissed the petitions of the AA and the APP.

The dismissal was a sequel to a formal withdrawal of the petitions by the parties.

Atiku in his 66-page petition urged the court to cancel the election and order a fresh poll due to alleged irregularities that marred the exercise in thousands of polling units.

The ex-vice president in his joint petition with the PDP marked: CA/PEPC/05/2023, applied for the withdrawal of the certificate of return that was issued to Tinubu by INEC.

He maintained that the declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election was “invalid by reason of non-compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022.”

Atiku further argued that Tinubu’s election was invalid because of corrupt practices and prayed the court to nullify his election and declare him the winner of the presidential election, having secured the second-highest number of lawful votes cast in the election.

He insisted that the APC candidate did not meet the constitutional threshold and “is constitutionally disabled from contesting for the office of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

However, in a reply he filed through his team of lawyers led by Chief Wole Olanipekun, SAN, Tinubu questioned the legal competence of the petition.

He described Atiku as a consistent serial loser who had since 1993 crisscrossed different political parties in search of power.

Obi in his petition argued that the election was flawed by irregularities, citing also the alleged non-qualification of Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, to contest the election.

He also alleged that Tinubu failed to win a majority of lawful votes and also one-quarter of lawful votes cast in the Federal Capital Territory.

He alleged that the election was conducted in substantial non-compliance with the provision of the law.

Hehehe.

Anybody expecting the judiciary in Nigeria to come up with a contrary view with the president is just dreaming.

The judiciary in Nigeria works hand in hand with the sitting government. They will deliver judgement,I mean sale judgement to the people in power. It's a tradition.

I just pity all these one's shouting all eye's on the judiciary grin cheesy.

E go clear soon.

The Obidients introduced bitterness into Nigerian politics. How could you go to court and already concluded that unless the judgement goes your way, then you must protest. Why go to court in the first place? The worst part of it is that this is the worst and most spurious election petition in the history of nigeria. A petition so spurious and watery that if the obidients are not really a headless mob, they would have stoned obi for wasting their time in court.
However, obidients can’t think . They want to retrieve a mandate for a candidate who never challenged the result of the election in court but is asking the court to disqualify the winner.

1) IREV - Dead on arrival. Just like saying FIFA ( Court) must cancel a World Cup final match because AIT( IREV) did not broadcast it live even though the referee ( INEC ) officiated the match and declared a winner.

2) CIVIL FORFEITURE- Dead on arrival. Just like saying because kidnappers paid money into your account without your knowledge ( and police already caught the kidnappers) and the court asked you to forfeit the money then you can no longer contest. So many people were victims of such payments from kidnappers and 419 in time past. The police would arrest you and once they see the kidnappers, they will release and you will forfeit the money. That’s civil forfeiture

3) 25 percent FCT- Dead on arrival. When the citizens of Abuja start paying 25 percent tax more than others , maybe this can work. For now, they are no angels.

4) Chicago- dead on arrival. The school said it is our certificate. The headless mob said No, the school is lying. What kind of stupidity is that?

Anyway, it is time for police and military to do target practice because the petition can only be resolved one way…. In favor of Tinubu with heavy fines against Obi for wasting the time of the court.

That place is called temple of justice for a reason, let the priests therein be of high spiritual and moral rectitude and dispense justice accordingly and avoid underhand manipulation of justice.

They call them “My Lords” for a reason. They should not let vipers lord over them. Let them prove that being called "My Lord" was earned with merit, triteness and honesty.


In the past elders admonished the younger ones to shun evil, be fair to everyone and always “do the right thing”….

But today the younger generation are the ones screaming to the elderly members of the Judiciary to shun evil, be fair and DO THE RIGHT THING! [/b]That’s how messed up Nigeria in particular has become.

Reality beckons. This is the time to stand up and be counted to prove that indeed, it is an honour to be saddled with such a huge responsibility of ensuring that the will and collective resolve of the people count.

On the other hand, it is also unacceptable for the bench to be blackmailed, embarrassed and harangued to pass judgement in a certain manner. The rule of law must prevail.

I am optimistic that sound and balanced legal principles will be upheld. No one should take the laws into his/her hands.

Lastly, my mentor, the great Martin Luther King, Jr., reminded us that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice"

God bless Nigeria
