A statement by the court’s Director, Press and Information, Festus Akande, said the court had concluded arrangement to ensure that “two panels of the Supreme Court, comprising of five Justices each, will be sitting during the annual vacation, which marks the end of 2018/2019 legal year”.

It added: “This development arose from the numerous appeals on election-related matters that have been streaming to the court since the conduct of the 2019 general elections.

“The annual vacation will begin on Monday, July 22, but the court has constituted two panels that will be sitting during the holiday period in order to see that all election-related matters are dealt with.

“In view of this development, all parties involved will be contacted through hearing notices.”
