Judges are saying that lawyers should create space for members of public to sit in court–Ozekhome

The Presidential Election petition tribunal has commenced pre-hearing of the petition filed by Atiku and Obi and some other parties who had rejected the results announced by INEC in Abuja. The challenge is against the outcome of the February 25th Presidential election. The pre-hearing was open to some members of the public who were allowed to witness it.

According to a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who is also a Counsel to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the court recognizes the importance of the election and has permitted some members of the public to witness the pre-hearings in Abuja. He emphasized that the world is keenly watching the proceedings of the case, and they will want to see how the justice system of Nigeria functions.

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria noted that the public hearing is essential, and members of the public should be allowed to attend. The judges agreed with this and directed lawyers present to create space for members of the public in the courtroom. He added that the case has both national and international dimensions, and people across the world are observing the process to see how Nigeria's justice system operates.
