The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) reconvened in Abuja today to resume the hearing on the suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 presidential election.

Since Tuesday, May 30, the tribunal has been diligently considering the petitions presented by multiple parties involved in the case. Alongside the PDP and Atiku Abubakar, the Labour Party, represented by Peter Obi, and the Allied Peoples’ Movement (APM) have also filed petitions.

The respondents in this case include the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), President Bola Tinubu, Vice-President Kashim Shettima, and the APC.

During today’s resumed hearing in Abuja, the courtroom witnessed the physical presence of the first and third respondents, INEC and the APC. The APC was represented by its Director of Legal Services, while National Commissioner May Agbamuche appeared on behalf of INEC.
