The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal began sitting yesterday in Abuja with a pledge to ensure justice for those who deserve it.

The tribunal fixed the hearing of the petitions filed by the Action Peoples Party (APP) and the Labour Party for tomorrow.

Prominent Nigerians, civil society organisations (CSOs) and other stakeholders have repeatedly urged the tribunal to avoid miscarriage of justice and earn the citizens’ confidence in the judiciary.

This may have prompted the tribunal to assure Nigerians that it would not do the bidding of the contending parties and presidential candidates.

The parties are challenging the declaration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressive Congress as the winner of the February 25 presidential election.
