He also said that “It is critical that all citizens are informed and engaged with this issue, in order to ensure that justice is not only served but must be seen to have been served and the democratic process is upheld.”
“It is crucial that the general public, the media, civil society organizations, and international observers are all paying close attention to the supreme court’s decision”.
“If there is widespread scrutiny and awareness of the case, it will make it more difficult for the court to make a judgement that is not in line with the law”.
“Additionally, increased scrutiny will put pressure on the court to make a judgement that is just and fair.”
“All eyes must once again be on the supreme court because it is the last line of defense for democracy and the rule of law in Nigeria.”
“The court must be held to the highest standards of integrity and impartiality, in order to maintain the confidence of the public and uphold the foundations of democracy”.
“If all eyes are on the court, it will be more likely to make a fair and just judgement, without fear or favor.”
“We must not give up by judging with what happened in the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.”
“If you care about the future of democracy and the rule of law in Nigeria, it is important to stay up to date with the latest developments in the supreme court case.” Rev. Peace advised.
