The Minister of State for Labour and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Keyamo, has cautioned against rushing the determination of petitions against the victory of Bola Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election.

Atiku Abubakar of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of Labour Party (LP) are challenging Tinubu’s victory.

Keyamo stated that hasty determination of the petitions could be detrimental to the case of the petitioners, as “Justice rushed is justice crushed.”

He explained that the rules of the court do not allow for quick determination of cases and that rushing the petition could destroy Obi and Atiku’s cases.

Keyamo advised those calling for speedy hearing of the petitions to realize that the petitioners need more time to prove their cases and not necessarily the defendants.

He also explained that a petitioner cannot pursue a single point up to the Supreme Court and after losing, return to the Tribunal or Court and say he/she/it wants to now prove other aspects of the case.

Keyamo concluded that rushing the determination of the petitions would do the cases of the petitioners great harm.
