As the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal continues its sitting, a former Chairman of the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal matters, Umar Dahiru, says Nigerians have lost hope in the country’s judicial system.

The former lawmaker identified corruption, ethnicity, religion and others as the major obstacles to justice dispensation in Nigeria.

He said the book is coming at the right time when Nigerians seek justice to electoral issues during the February and March elections.

Dahiru lamented that justice is sleeping in Nigeria, a metaphoric description of Nigerians losing confidence in the country’s judiciary system.
