The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has called on the Presidential Elections Tribunal to deliver good judgement on the petitions filed by opposition parties, adding that wrong judgement may set the entire nation on fire.
The call followed the commencement of the hearing of the petitions filed by the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, and his Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, challenging the victory of President-elect Bola Tinubu.
The tribunal, which commenced the pre-hearing on Monday, adjourned it to Wednesday, May 10.
Warning against compromise during the hearing, COSEYL, in a statement by its President-General, Goodluck Ibem, opined that the court’s decision would affect all Nigerians either positively or negatively.
“The judges should put into cognizance the fact that the judgement they deliver will either affect them positively or negatively, but we advise them to tread the path of truth and fairness in order not to put the nation on fire.
“Injustice to one is injustice to all; we urge that the right thing should be done.
“We are praying for the judges and we urge all Nigerians to also pray for them so that they will bear the Solomon order of wisdom to deliver her judgement,” he said.
