The Nigeria Labour Congress, has slammed the judiciary, especially elections petition tribunal over delay in hearing several suits filed against the outcome of 2023 general elections conducted on February 25.
explained why the judiciary especially the election petition tribunals, has many questions to answer.
According to Daily Post, the National Chairman of the congress, Mr Joe Ajaero, made this known on Sunday in Abuja during a press conference organized by the Labour and Civil Society Movement Front to mark the 2023 Workers’ Day.
He noted that the labour and civil society movements may soon establish a ‘Hall of Shame’ for any judge that compromise the hearing of several suits challenging the 2023 general elections.
While noting that they would stage action against whoever frustrate the process, Ajaero recalled how the judiciary imposed leaders on Nigerians in the previous elections.
There are a number of suits filed before the Presidential Election Tribunal challenging the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.
Ajaero wondered why the election petition tribunals were yet to commence sitting regarding petitions from aggrieved candidates who took part in the exercise.
“The judiciary has set many states and institutions on fire. The judiciary has set Imo State on fire and up till now, people are wondering how a person who was not a candidate of his party be declared the governor.
“The judiciary has so many questions to answer. If they failed to answer those questions within a short time, we would create a Hall of Shame for those judges that come up with some judgments and that could happen soon,“ he said.
