Labour Party Raises Alarm Over Unsettling Statements and Live Coverage Change of the PEPT Judgment 


In a recent press release, signed by Labour Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, the Party has highlighted a series of concerns ahead of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) judgment, scheduled for tomorrow. The party draws attention to unsettling developments that could potentially impact the integrity of the judiciary and democratic processes in Nigeria.

One major concern raised by the Labour Party is the recent statement made by former Justice of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, Justice Mary Odili, during an event in Abuja. The party found her comments, along with the boasting of some serving ministers and legislators about the judgment’s outcome, to be alarming and detrimental to the sanctity of the judiciary.

The Labour Party also criticized the excessive praise heaped on the legal counsels of both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu by Justice Odili, asserting that such behavior is undignified and unbecoming of a renowned jurist.

Additionally, the party questions the sudden change in the PEPC’s stance regarding live television coverage of the judgment. While the hearings of the petition were not broadcast live, there is now a push for live coverage during the judgment announcement. The party seeks clarity on the reasons behind this change.

The Labour Party has also expressed concern over potential efforts to orchestrate problems and blame them on the political opposition, emphasizing the importance of the right to peaceful demonstration in a democracy.

In conclusion, the Party calls on Nigerians to remain calm, respect the rule of law, and understand that the matter has not reached its final conclusion.
