In a statement signed by its Chairman Niyi
Akinsiju and Secretary Cassidy Madueke, BMO warned Nigerians to be
watchful and ensure they resist any move or antics from any quarter to
undermine, intimidate, or harass Justices of the Presidential Election
Petition Tribunal.

Zeroing in on the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) and its Presidential candidate in the last election, Alhaji Atiku
Abubarkar, BMO called Nigerians’ attention to the various attacks,
threats and intimidation against Justices sitting at the PEPT.

“This is disrespectful, offensive and a clear assault on the rule of law.

“On
Social Media, PDP agents have gone to the extent of publishing the
personal details, including the telephone numbers, of the Justices of
the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, with the intent of getting
Nigerians, particularly PDP supporters to harass and intimidate these
Justices.

“Some of Atiku’s social media agents have published
threatening comments and called for the Justices to do the bidding of
their principal. They have implied that they would unleash some sinister
actions in the event their principal loses at the Tribunal.

“This
is shameful and a desecration of our justice system. It is an attack on
our democracy, and Nigerians must be wary of this, and call it out for
what it is. It shows how desperate the PDP and Atiku have become, that
they would go to any lengths to perverse a system in order to have their
way.

“We must say however that this does not come to us as
something new. These kinds of threats to members of the Judiciary is the
usual style of the PDP. It characterised their days when they ran the
affairs of the country. There was a preponderance of reports of members
of the Judiciary who were either threatened, coerced or allegedly bribed
to do their biddings.”

“The Justices have nothing to fear or
worry about. PDP’s harassment and intimidation would go nowhere. And it
would have no effect, whatsoever. We only call on the Justices to remain
focused and undeterred by these threats, intimidation and other antics
of this forces of evil”, the statement added.
