A Nigerian lawyer named Samuel Ihienseken Jnr. recently commented to the press on the importance of evidence and witnesses in court.
Peter Obi pointed out that he lacks access to the evidence and witnesses he would need to challenge the outcome of the presidential election before the tribunal. Since Peter Obi has no witnesses to corroborate his claims of overvoting or election irregularities, I do not believe his appeal against Tinubu, he declared.
Witnesses from all over the country won't be easy to track down for Peter Obi, and the court has to rely on the evidence and testimony offered by both parties. To stop Tinubu's inauguration, even Samuel Ihienseken Jr. was quoted.
He said, "Some folks who have won elections have remained in administration while the court case is ongoing; even Peter Obi had been in power as the governor of Anambra state while his court case is still going on, and he didn't stand down. Tinubu's would make no sense to be different.
