Fire incident has nothing to do with presidential election petitions says Supreme Court
In response to apparent fear within the polity, the Supreme Court has said that the fire incident that occurred on Monday morning will not affect the presidential election petition.
The Public Relations Officer of the apex court, Festus Akande, gave the assurance during a Monday morning interview on Arise TV.
As reported by The PUNCH, a wing of the Supreme Court complex situated at the Three-Arm-Zone, Abuja, was engulfed by fire on Monday morning.
But while clearing the air on the incident, Akande said, “As a matter of fact, there’s no single connection, and it won’t affect anything in the court.
“This incident occurred in a chamber equipped with a computer and other equipment, as well as a functional library used by any justice occupying such chamber.
Akande added, “The only thing that was affected were the books and computer equipment in the chamber. Even the books are replaceable.
“Also, it has nothing to do with it because it was from an electrical fault, which could happen anywhere, and there are things that happen daily”, he added.
