In other news, Strong indications have emerged that the proposed nationwide indefinite strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC)and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) might stall the appeal of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and his counterpart in the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
A top source in the Supreme Court revealed that a panel might be instituted next week for Atiku and Obi’s appeals, however, fears are that the strike might affect the constitution.
The organised labour has resolved to commence a nationwide strike on Tuesday, October 3.
Recall that the duo had on September 19 filed 86 grounds of appeal at the apex court, praying the court to nullify the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
KOKO TV NG gathered that the source said the panel could be instituted next week, everything being equal.
The Supreme Court source, who pleaded anonymity, told KOKO TV NG that, “Well, let us look at next week. All things being equal, it should not go beyond next week. But the issue is the strike; we hope it does not disrupt things.
