Garuba, who is the Presiding Justice of the Lagos Division appeared with the five-man panel as the new chairman of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal
In his welcome address, the new chairman of the panel said what he intends to do is a call over of the petitions to enable the tribunal to schedule them for hearing because he is just joining the panel.

He called for the cooperation of the parties as it is time bound and the time is already halfway and there is need to prudently ensure the cases are heard.
