What is Presidential Election Petition Court?
The Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja refers to a court established in Nigeria to hear and determine petitions challenging the results of presidential elections in the country. This court is established pursuant to Section 134(1) of the Nigerian Constitution, which provides for the establishment of an election tribunal to hear and determine petitions challenging the election of the President of Nigeria.
The court is located in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, and is presided over by judges appointed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria. The court has the power to summon witnesses, take evidence, and make findings of fact and law in relation to petitions challenging the election of the President of Nigeria.
The decisions of the PEP Court can be appealed to the Court of Appeal and ultimately to the Supreme Court of Nigeria, which is the highest court in the land. The purpose of the PEP Court is to ensure that disputes arising from presidential elections in Nigeria are resolved in a fair and impartial manner, in accordance with the rule of law and the principles of democracy.
