The Supreme Court’s Public Relations Officer, Festus Akande, has assured that the fire incident that occurred on Monday morning will not affect the presidential election petition.
Akande made this known while speaking during an interview on Arise TV on Monday.
According to him, the fire incident will not affect anything in the court.
PUNCH reported earlier that a wing of the Supreme Court complex situated at the Three-Arm-Zone, Abuja, was engulfed by fire on Monday morning.
The PRO noted, “As a matter of fact, there’s no single connection, and it won’t affect anything in the court.
“This incident occurred in a chamber equipped with a computer and other equipment, as well as a functional library used by any justice occupying such chamber.
Akande added, “The only thing that was affected were the books and computer equipment in the chamber. Even the books are replaceable.
“Also, it has nothing to do with it because it was from an electrical fault, which could happen anywhere, and there are things that happen daily”, he concluded.
