Atiku storms Presidential Election Petition Tribunal

The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has stormed the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to witness proceedings in his petition challenging Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress, APC, as winners of the election.

The former Vice President arrived the court at about 8:30 am to witness submissions in his motion on notice seeking live coverage of the court by the media.

Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party, LP, was on Monday and Wednesday at the Court where he witnessed proceedings in his own petition.

DAILY POST noted that Atiku was accompanied to the court by the leaders of the PDP, followers, sympathisers and business associates.

Our correspondent also noted that security has been beefed up to prevent security breaches in view of the status of Atiku as a former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Although Atiku’s petition was initially slated for 2pm for pre-hearing session, it was gathered that it was brought down to this morning.
