Our correspodent from the Federal Capital Territory Abuja reports that both the Labour Party LP embattled candidate Peter Obi and his co- lost out presidential candidate of PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar are still nursing high hopes to take back the number one position and possibly remove the already established President -Elect Bola Tinubu from the hot seat.
Recall that INEC at the conclusion of the presidential election announced Tinubu as the winner but the duo Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar took APC and Tinubu to appeal court.
After the adoptions and arguments by counsels at the pre- hearing session, the court has adjourned to Thursday May 11, 2023, by 2:00Pm to allow other parties, I.e. APC, Bola Tinubu and INEC to respond to PDP and Atiku Abubakar’s application for the Live Transmission of the hearings.
However, while outlining and adopting the petition filed by the PDP and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, the PDP lead Counsel, Chris Uche, SAN, informed the court of its application for the permission of the court to televise the hearing “LIVE” on national television and other news media.
He described the application as very important and begged the Lord Justices to intervene with the urgency it required.
Other parties in the case have not responded to the application and the court is yet to decide on the matter. (Live Transmission of Court hearings).
After a few minutes of break by the Justices, the court went back in session for the pre-hearing of the Petition filed by the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, in the February 25, 2023 Election.
