    A Facetious flee to Justice

    The electoral petition tribunal is over. The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, will go on to lead the nation for the next four years. Yet the dust raised in jubilant ceremony still abounds, taking its time before bowing out, settling and leaving the stage.
