“In his statement announcing the suspension of the courts, Tinubu cited his presidential immunity and claimed to have uncovered evidence of widespread fraud in the judiciary.
He stated that he was suspending the courts in order to ‘protect the integrity of the electoral process and ensure the fairness of the upcoming election judgment ‘. However, legal experts have questioned the legality of his actions, and have pointed out that the constitution does not grant the president the power to suspend the courts.
President Bola Tinubu has announced the suspension of all courts in Nigeria, citing his fear of disqualification from the upcoming election.
“While all cases related to the upcoming election have been suspended, Tinubu has stated that other court cases may continue. However, many have questioned the fairness of this arrangement, as it may allow Tinubu to retain power while preventing any challenge to his authority.
The implications of this action are far-reaching, and could have a significant impact on the country’s democratic institutions.
This unprecedented action has sparked widespread outrage and confusion among legal experts and the general public. Many are questioning the legality and constitutionality of Tinubu’s decision, and are demanding answers from the government.
