some leaders under the aegis of Imo political stakeholders forum have lauded the decision of the President Court of Appeal and the Imo election petition tribunal Judges to relocate their sitting from Owerri, to Nasarawa state, saying it will aide thoroughness and justice.
The forum in a statement by its leader, Ambassador Sam Nwandu recalled that the National/state Assembly Election Tribunal, sitting at the old High Court premises, Owerri, at the weekend relocated to the High Court Complex, Mararaba Nyanya, Nasarawa State.
The forum quoted the Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, Owerri branch, Daniel Odiba as making the disclosure in a statement.
