Kaduna Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Prepares to Deliver Judgement via Zoom

Kaduna Governorship Election Petition Tribunal to Deliver Judgement via Zoom

The Governorship Election Petition Tribunal in Kaduna State is gearing up to announce its judgement on the petitions brought before it through the Zoom platform.

This innovative approach marks a shift from traditional in-person courtroom proceedings.

PDP’s Challenge Against APC’s Uba Sani

The petitions before the tribunal have been filed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Isah Mohammed Ashiru.

Their challenge revolves around the election of Uba Sani, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as Governor of Kaduna State.

Virtual Proceedings in Progress

As the clock neared 9:50 am, the proceedings had yet to commence, but the courtroom had been meticulously prepared for the virtual delivery of the judgement.

A significant provision for this technology-driven approach was the incorporation of Zoom for the proceedings.

Zoom Takes Center Stage

The tribunal had set up a large screen that was already linked to Zoom, prominently displaying “EPT KADUNA 3.”

This setup underlines the tribunal’s commitment to leveraging modern technology for a more accessible and efficient judicial process.

Security Measures in Place

The premises of the Kaduna State High Court in Kawo, where the tribunal is convened, is under tight security.

This heightened security presence reflects the significance of the occasion and ensures the orderly conduct of the proceedings, even in a virtual format.

The adoption of Zoom for the delivery of the tribunal’s judgement represents a forward-looking approach to legal proceedings, embracing technology to enhance transparency and accessibility.
