The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal has commenced a hearing on the petition by Labour Party, LP, and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s win in the 2023 elections.
Recall that Obi and his party are challenging the declaration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate as the winner of the fiercely contested February 25th election conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Amid anxiety, the tribunal commenced on the final judgement today, September 6; the judgment in Peter Obi and LP’s petition is currently being read as of reporting time.
The court had earlier taken a recess after giving its verdicts on the petition of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) challenging the qualification of President Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima.
