Courts cannot choose Candidates for Elections 


Chief Ferdinand Orbih, SAN

According to the President of the Court of Appeal, a total of 730 Election petitions were filed after the 2015 General Elections. Of these, 39 were Governorship, 79 Senatorial, 179 House of Representatives and 380 State Houses of Assembly election petitions. In addition 32 election petitions arising out of the elections conducted in Edo and Anambra States, in 2016. Her Lordship said that a total of 110 tribunals were setup with 255 Judges to hear the petitions. These figures are indeed very worrisome
