Monday Ubani, a Nigerian lawyer, has said that while the country's judicial system has improved, he does not think the presidential election tribunal case can be resolved in a week.
The improvement that has been introduced I the judiciary, Ubani said further on Monday, includes the fact that petitioners are no longer required to provide witnesses from all the polling units in order to prove their case before the tribunal.
Monday According to Ubani, the new electoral act allows petitioners to gather all the documents and get one competent witness can tender the documents to the court, whereas before they would have had to provide thousands of witnesses from all the polling units in order to prove their case.
On Monday, Ubani revealed that all the witnesses from all the polling units must appear before the court because of the manual way INEC did things in the past. However, the development of new technologies has simplified matters to the point where a single credible witness is now sufficient for a court.
