President Muhammadu Buhari has implored the judiciary to further sustain rule of law in Nigeria and ensure the integrity of participatory democracy by remaining honest arbiters in pre and post election matters
The president gave the charge when he inaugurated the Body of Benchers Complex in Abuja on Thursday.
He said that the judiciary had a major role to play in safeguarding fairness in the 2023 elections and ensuring the sanctity of democratic processes.
“As the 2023 General Elections draw near, the significance of the legal profession becomes even more pronounced considering the vital roles you play in the electioneering process, both at the pre and post-election stages.
”I hope you maintain the position of an honest arbiter,” he said.
