Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rev. Henry Ndukuba has urged election petition tribunals not to disappoint God and man.
At the 12th Synod of the Diocese of Abuja on Saturday, he noted that the resilience of the country’s judicial system is under test.
The cleric advised the judges to ensure they leave an enduring hope for justice, equity and fairness for all citizens.
“Judicial ofﬁcers and lawyers must not disappoint God and man. We look forward to a new dawn in Nigeria,” NAN quoted.
Ndukuba urged citizens to “rise and build together”, calling on “God’s people” to watch and pray for the incoming administration.
The primate congratulated winners of the elections and urged aggrieved persons to shun violence and other acts that could jeopardise peace and stability.
He told elected leaders that Nigerians expect security, education and healthcare delivery, improved economy, rule of law and all-inclusive governance.
Ndukuba, however, observed that the 2023 general polls exposed the loopholes in the system and areas needing further legislative work.
