With just 7 days to the president-elect’s inauguration, Nigerians has stormed the venue of the election petition tribunal to protest the outcome of the 2023 Elections.
In order to demand that the judiciary be fair and unbiased in the conclusion of the ongoing adjudication about the February 25 presidential election, protesters have overrun the Court of Appeal offices in Abuja, the location of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC).
The protestors, who were primarily dressed in black, urged an end to recent killings, particularly in the north-central region of Nigeria. They also expressed compassion for the victims of insecurity around the nation.
Additionally, they chanted pro-justice, pro-transparency, and pro-good government chants at the Tribunal.
There were numerous armed police officers present at the Appeal Court’s grounds during the protest, however there were no reports of violence or arrests.
As the nation waits to learn the results of the petitions before PEPC, tensions are still high. The judiciary had not yet responded to the demonstrators’ requests, but many of them believed that, in the end, justice would be carried out and their voices would be heard.
