Onaiyekan: Kenyan Court Took 1 Week To Deliver Verdict On Its Presidential Election — Nzeh Ezeocha

The call made by Cardinal John Onaiyekan for the courts to resolve all election petitions before Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is sworn into office as President has faced backlash.

Veteran journalist Nzeh Ezeocha has suggested that Nigeria can learn from Kenya, a neighboring African country, that resolved its case within a week.

During an appearance on a Channel's TV interview, Cardinal Onaiyekan argued that it did not make sense for Tinubu to be sworn in without the courts delivering judgment on the petitions challenging his election victory.

Ezeocha insisted that Cardinal Onaiyekan's request for a quick resolution of election petitions before swearing-in is not new to African politics, and urged the Nigerian judiciary to learn from Kenya and stop dragging its foot on cases of national importance.

He highlighted that Kenya's Tribunal took only seven days to determine a matter before William Ruto was sworn in as the winner of the presidential election.
