Every Obstacle to Judicial Independence should be avoided – Omokri Warns FG

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has asked the federal government to give the Judiciary total independence concerning the ongoing Presidential Election Petition. This followed alleged reports that a justice of the appeal court resigned as a result of pressure from the executive to rule in its favour. In a tweet via his verified Twitter handle on Thursday, Omokri said every obstacle that will stop the independence of the judiciary should be avoided. He wrote: “Every obstacle to judicial independence should be avoided. “I believe that Waziri Atiku Abubakar won the #NigerianElections2023. However, I have deliberately kept quiet to allow the judiciary to do its work. “And we hope the Tinubu government will fulfil its pledge to ensure judicial independence because what we hear from the PEPC is disturbing. But we still leave room for the benefit of the doubt.”
