The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has arrived the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja for the presumed pre-hearing of his petition against the President-Elect, Bola Tinubu.
LP National Chairman, Julius Abure was also in court on Wednesday. The party’s factional chairman, Lamidi Apapa was also present.
The Tribunal had last week adjourned the pre-hearing session on Obi and the LP’s petition till May 17 at the instance of the petitioners.
On Wednesday, the justices arrived to commence the day’s proceedings and also refused to acknowledge the representation of the party aside from Obi.
A mild drama, however, ensured between the two camps of the Labour Party on which group should be in court.
