Peter Obi arrives Presidential election court as hearing begins


By Nurat Uthman

The Labour Party (LP) candidate in the February 25 presidential election, Peter Obi, has arrived at the venue of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal as the hearing begins today.

Recall that Peter Obi is among the petitioners challenging the March 1st declaration of the APC’s Bola Ahmed Tinubu as winner of the Presidential Election and Nigeria’s President-elect.

Meanwhile, Tribune Online had earlier reported that the tribunal has begun with Justice Tsamani heading the panel hearing  petitions challenging Tinubu’s election.

Other members of the panel are Justices Stephen Adah, who is the presiding Justice of the Asaba Division of the Court of Appeal,  Monsurat Bolaji Yusuf, Moses Ugo and Abba Mohammed.

The presiding Justice, Justice Tsamani, in his opening remarks said the Court is Presidential Election Petition Court and not Tribunal and warned against sensational statements for the safety of the country.

“We have five petitions before us, which we shall be alternating during the pre-hearing session. We should avoid unnecessary time- wasting applications as election matters are time-bound”, he said and promised that Justice will be done at the end of the day.
