The Nigeria Labour Congress has threatened to create a hall of shame for corrupt judges that deliver what it described as ridiculous judgements on election petitions.
The national president of the NLC, Joseph Ajaero stated this on Sunday, barely 10 days to the commencement of the Presidential Election Tribunal billed for May 10.
Ajaero, spoke in Abuja at a joint briefing with members of the civil society group under Labour and Civil Society Front.
He said Nigerians must come out to rescue Nigeria’s judiciary,claiming that
the judiciary has set so many states and institutions on fire with ridiculous judgements, insisting that, it must answer certain questions from Nigerians.
He said, “The judiciary has so many questions to answer, if they failed to answer those questions within a short time, we would create a hall of shame for those judges that come up with judgement for those judges that create such problems, that will happen soon.
“There is a need for the NBA, for all arms in the judiciary, to the bar benches, and all to speak out on what is happening in the judiciary whether judiciary is still the last hope of the common man.
“Now the destiny of the country is in our hands. It is either they fulfil it or they are betrayed once again, when they tell you to go to the court, they’re telling you that that is the end of the matter. Somebody will steal yam and say go to the court.
“On what basis are those statements being used? That’s the level of ridicule that the judiciary has brought and as Nigerians, we all need to come out to rescue the judiciary, or else there’ll be no need to continue going to court.”
