The Court of Appeal in Abuja has issued a directive for its staff members to remain at home on Wednesday, September 6th, 2023.
This decision has been made in anticipation of the judgment in the petitions challenging the election of President Bola Tinubu.
The directive, disclosed through a memo signed by Oluwaleye Oluwasegun David on behalf of the Chief Registrar, aims to ensure a peaceful and conducive atmosphere for the special sitting of the Presidential Election Tribunal Petition at the Abuja Division of the Court.
The memo clearly stated that only staff members with authorized tags will be allowed entry into the court premises. This security measure has been put in place to manage the flow of individuals and enhance overall security during this crucial event.
Tinubu’s election is being contested by prominent figures, including Peter Obi of the Labour Party, Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic Party, and the Allied Peoples Movement. In response, President Bola Tinubu has urged the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja to dismiss these petitions.
This development underscores the significance of the upcoming judgment and the measures being taken to ensure a smooth and orderly process. Security arrangements have been intensified to safeguard the court and its surroundings.
As the nation awaits the outcome of these petitions, all eyes are on the Court of Appeal in Abuja, where the fate of the presidential election results will soon be decided. Stay tuned for updates on this pivotal moment in Nigeria’s political landscape.
