Get Ready for a Thrilling Ride as Tribunal Resumes Hearing of Atiku, PDP’s Petition with 74 Witnesses Pending!

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are not done with the battle to challenge the outcome of the February 25 presidential election in Nigeria. The opposition party, out of the 100 witnesses it intends to call forth to prove its case, has so far examined 26.

“Following the emergence of the then-candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, as Nigeria’s president, the PDP challenged the outcome of the February 25 presidential election.”

The crux of the matter is to nullify Tinubu’s victory, claimed by the runner-up Abubakar, a former Vice President, who is one of the aggrieved parties before the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital. The other aggrieved party is the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who came third in the keenly contested election.

“Counsel to the petitioners, Chris Uche told the court that all the parties had met, considered, and agreed on the number of witnesses, duration, and examination of witnesses.”

The plan to call “no more than 100 witnesses” to the court was scheduled on May 20, and though the petitioners had seven weeks to call forth their witnesses, they determined that three weeks would suffice. Apparently, the issues are getting narrower, thus less time is necessary.

Yet, one month later, only 26 of the 100 witnesses have been called to testify in court. The PDP and Abubakar have made arrangements to call the remaining 74 witnesses in the coming days, continuing their legal quest to sack Tinubu as Nigeria’s president.

“On Tuesday, the court resumed the hearing of PDP’s petition.”
