Presidential election tribunal: Will Ogebe’s elevation affect Tuesday’s verdict?

Daily Trust "The decision by President Yar’Adua to nominate Justice Ogebe, the chairman of the presidential election petition tribunal, as a Supreme Court judge, less than a week to the tribunal’s ruling has drawn the ire of the opposition. Will it affect the verdict slated for Tuesday, February 26, 2008? Weekly Trust asks.
President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua’s letter in which he sought the Senate’s confirmation of Justice James Ogenyi Ogebe and Justice Saifullahi Muntaka Coomassie, as Supreme Court justices – promoting them from the Court of Appeal – did not contain much information other than on the recommendation of the National Judicial Council, fill the vacancies created by the retirements of former Chief Justice, Alfa Modibbo Salihu Belgore and Justice Umaru Atu Kalgo."
