A former Minister of Education, Obiageli Ezekwesili, has warned that the country might wake up with terrible news headlines from the rest of the world if it continues to wave off consequences of bad behaviour.
Ezekwesili said Nigerians have a lot of deep lessons to be learnt from the just concluded February 25 presidential election.
In a series of tweets via her verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, the former Minister lamented that Nigerians had become less trusting of the judiciary allegedly because of strange rulings made by courts.
She said that the current demand by Nigerians for accurate and current information from the proceedings at the election petition tribunal is well justified and should be heeded to.
She wrote, “A society that habitually ignores consequences for bad behaviour will wake up to a day when 2 of 3 Presidential Candidates of parties can only generate terrible news headlines from the rest of the world.
“There are deep lessons from the #PresidentialElection2023 for Nigerians.
“I emphatically restate that #JudicialTransparency should be an overarching goal for the Chief Justice of Nigeria, the Supreme and Appeal Courts on the #PresidentialElection2023 proceedings.
The CJN should advance our public interest and champion Live Broadcast of hearings.
“Nigerians have become so much less trusting of the Judiciary evidently because of strange rulings made by courts in some key election cases.
“So there is justified demand for the most accurate and current information from the #PresidentialElectionTribunal proceedings. Heed it..”
