Synod of All Nations Evangelism Ministry (ANEM) in Benue State, has urged the Nigerian Judiciary to dispense justice at the elections petition tribunals without fear or favour.
The synod also advised the judiciary to carefully consider all the controversies arising from the recently conducted presidential election for peace and unity to reign in the country.
Chairman of the synod and president of ANEM, Archbishop Yimam Orkwar, who read the resolutions reached on the 3rd day of the International Communion of World Missions Conference, being the first quarter synod for the year 2023, yesterday in Makurdi said the presidential election recently conducted by INEC had sparked off a series of controversies across the country.
“We call on the Nigerian Judiciary who is constitutionally empowered to look into the complaints to discharge its duties without fear or favour in the best interest of the nation.

“Synod calls on all Nigerians particularly those who contested elections and their teeming supporters to exercise patience while they await the decisions of the Election Petition Tribunals and to resist all forms of violent behaviour and utterances that are capable of causing instability and disaffection.
“Synod calls on the government at the centre and the various states to, in the interest of the nation, ensure a smooth transition at all levels so that the incoming administration would take off smoothly.
“What INEC promised was not what we saw. Nobody will say the election in Nigeria was free and fair. Other results were uploaded but the presidential result was not uploaded as promised.
“If something was wrong, why was it affecting the presidential results alone? The elections were not free, fair and credible,” he said.
