“Election matters are time-bound and provisions fixing time for taking any steps are strictly construed to emphasise that time is of the essence in election petitions. Without the strict compliance with Paragraph 18 (1) reproduced above, any application for the issuance of pre-hearing notice or conduct of pre-hearing session will be exercise in futility for failure to comply with the pre-condition for same. See Okolo v. Union Bank (2004) 1 SC (Pt. 1) for effect of failure to comply with condition precedent provided by law or rule.”
