Why Senate President Should Be Sworn In On May 29th By Emmanuel Ogebe

Practically three months after the February presidential elections, INEC still has only 96% of the results meant to have been uploaded in “real-time” on its IREV portal. At the Election Tribunal, petitioners complained that INEC has failed to supply 70% of the election materials ordered by the court over a month ago. The Tribunal which has 180 days to hear the case hopes to wrap up pre-hearing matters by the end of this month – such as duplicate motions on whether to live broadcast the trial – 60 days after the filing of the petitions. The APC argued that airing the proceedings would turn the court into a stadium or circus although tribunal proceedings have been aired without input of counsel since 2008. However, the irony here is that it is INEC which has turned Nigeria into a circus of brazen election criminality and venality in the eyes of the world which the courts are now trying to sanitize. The bottom line is that this litigation will not be resolved by May 29th, without extraordinary gumption and action by all …
