Tribunal: Peter Obi absent in court


As the presidential election tribunal delivers judgment today on the February general election, a major challenger of the result, Peter Obi, was not present in court.

Obi was represented by the party’s chairman, Julius Abure, who stated that Obi was out of the country on official assignment. 

However, the Election Petitions Tribunal has begun hearing the case of Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in Nigeria’s February 25 election, who is challenging the victory of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress. 

The tribunal, chaired by Justice Haruna Tsammani, will hear allegations of widespread irregularities and malpractices in the election, including using fake voters’ cards, ballot box stuffing, and voter intimidation. 

Obi is seeking to nullify Tinubu’s victory and be declared the rightful winner of the election.
