Charles Oputa a.k.a. Charly Boy has urged Nigerians to throng the Court of Appeal, venue of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) on September 6. He claims the tribunal would not air the live broadcast of the final verdict as it pledged.
Recall that the authorities of the Court of Appeals had restricted those that would be present during the ruling, urging Nigerians to watch the proceedings on television which will be transmitted live.
Charly Boy told Nigerians via his “X” (formerly Twitter) handle, @AreaFada1, to make the proclamation.
He wrote, “UPDATE: The PEPT may not air the live broadcast of the final verdict on the 6th of September 2023. The former announcement could be a trick to preventing Nigerians from coming to the court on that day.”
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police have warned political gladiators against misinformation and unguarded utterances ahead of the Presidential Election Tribunal judgement slated for Wednesday.
The Force public relations officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the police would not condone activities capable of inciting violence or causing a descent into anarchy.
He said it is imperative for all citizens to be peaceful and calm regardless of their political affiliations, to ensure a peaceful and secure environment.
He said the police had fortified security nationwide to forestall the breakdown of law and order after the tribunal judgement.
NAN stated that Adejobi reiterated the commitment of the force to ensure the safety of lives and property before, during, and after the judgement.
According to him, diligent security measures have been taken to maintain order and enforce laws while respecting the rights and freedoms of citizens.
