Pan Niger Delta Elders Forum, PANDEF, has called on the lawyers of the presidential candidates of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, to quickly apologise to the clients.
PANDEF believes that the legal representatives of the opposition parties’ candidates did a poor job at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
National Publicity Secretary of PANDEF, Ken Robinson, in a statement, said that the lapses in the presentations by the counsel for LP and PDP were regrettable.
He insisted that the legal representatives did not do due diligence on the matter presented to them by their respective clients.
“We followed the extensive judgment that lasted for about 11 hours and it was elaborate.
“The justices of the Court of Appeal made exclusive explanations and detailed ruling on the matter.
“With due respect to the learned lawyers, who handled those petitions, perhaps they need to apologise to their masters and principals who gave them those jobs.
“From what we witnessed yesterday, they did not do a good job,” he said.
