” It’s been eleven (11) days since the Honourable President of the Court of Appeal and erstwhile Chairperson of the 2019 Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa disqualified herself from the Tribunal following the Petition of the PDP and Atiku/Obi legal team.

” Justice Bulkachuwa on that fateful day, promised to appoint a replacement. This has not been done.’

According to the letter, ” this delay is a deliberate ploy by the Buhari Presidency to truncate the course of justice, since it knows the Tribunal has a timeline to prosecute the petitions. Already, seventy six (76) days has been expended out of the one hundred and eighty (180) days  allowed by law, as seen in Section 134 (2) and (3) of the Electoral Act (2010 as amended)

Nigerians and the international community are watching, the legal team said.  “The rule of law must prevail. The sanctity of the Judiciary must be upheld. We are confident that the mandate of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the popularly elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, will be restored.”
