Freedom of speech over sub-judicial issues
Mr Iboro Otu, ANRP Party Governorship candidate of the concluded elections in Akwa Ibom had his petition refused by the Presidential Petition Tribunal despite being submitted on time. He explained his situation on phone during Wemimo's show, Morning Crossfire.
In another development, PDP asked Justice Bulkachuwa to withdraw from Atiku's petition because her husband is an APC member. There were phone calls that showed people had different angles or opinion on the matter.
Many in Nigeria still believe that the basic rights to freedom of expression is not granted yet. Otu believes that everyone has a right to speak about what's going but not everyone can't give final judgment on how the issue must be resolved. He believes there's a difference about reporting and and analyzing.
