Abuja, 07 March, 2023 / 8:40 pm (ACI Africa).
The Catholic Archbishop of Nigeria’s Abuja Archdiocese has lauded aggrieved politicians in the country’s February 25 elections for shunning violence and seeking the intervention of the court instead.
In his Sunday, March 5 homily at St. Augustine’s Parish, Lugbe of the Archdiocese of Abuja, Archbishop Ignatius Ayau Kaigama expressed hope that the country’s legal system will act in fairness concerning the election outcome that has already been disputed.
“Those not satisfied with the results are heading to the courts. Let the courts do their work with the greatest sense of justice. God above is watching how the courts (the hope of the common man/woman) will perform,” Archbishop Kaigama said.
He added, “The Supreme Judge of the Ultimate Tribunal is waiting for those who dispense justice with a sense of fairness or do so with great personal bias or get compromised because of some material reasons. Let justice be done.”
Nigeria’s electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on March 1, declared the ruling party candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, winner of the presidential election.
