#NigeriaDesides: Those Aggrieved Should Go To Court – Gbajabiamila


Feb 28, 2023

Femi Gbajabiamila, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has urged anyone who feels wronged by the results of the presidential election to file a lawsuit.

In his welcome-back speech on Tuesday, Gbajabiamila urged anyone who felt wronged to refrain from taking or saying anything that would pave the way for interventions that could endanger Nigeria’s democracy.

Recall that competing parties are contesting the results of the presidential election as they are being announced.

Olusegun Obasanjo, a former president, has also joined the call for the election to be canceled.

The Speaker made a point of pointing out that the process for contesting the results of the presidential election is set down in the constitution.

“The constitution of our republic and the Electoral Act that governs elections in Nigeria both define a framework of post-election dispute resolution and adjudication. This framework exists to protect the integrity of our elections.

“It ensures that when elections fail to meet expectations, contested issues of facts and law can be resolved through a due process within a legal framework befitting a constitutional democracy,”

He added that “Nigeria will be at peace because we will work through the law and due process to resolve differences, settle disputes and ensure the peaceful transition of power.”
