The Court of Appeal, Abuja, has debunked reports claiming Justice Boloukuoromo M. Ugo has resigned as member of the five-man panel of the Presidential Election Petitions Court, PEPC.
A verified Twitter user by the name Umar Sani had tweeted on Thursday that Justice Ugo resigned on grounds that siding with President Bola Tinubu against those challenging his presidential victory at the Court “would mean the death of Nigeria’s democracy”.
The tweet was retweeted over 4,079 times and is still trending on Twitter as of the time of this report.
But on reaching out to the Secretary of the PEPC panel, Mrs Josephine J. Ekperobe for confirmation or denial of the viral post, she described the information as fake news.
