Following the upcoming judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on petitions challenging the election of President Bola Tinubu, the Court of Appeal, Abuja has directed its staff to stay at home on Wednesday (tomorrow).
The directive is contained in a memo signed by Oluwaleye David, on behalf of the chief registrar of the court, Umar Bangari.
According to the memo, this is “to create a conducive and peaceful atmosphere for the special sitting for the presidential election tribunal petition.”
He added that only staff with tags provided by the management will be allowed into the court premises.
In addition to this, David stated that a “very strong security apparatus has been arranged to man the entrance of the court and also in all strategic areas of the court complex.”
