Obi, Datti, Keyamo Present As Tribunal Resumes Hearing


The presidential and vice-presidential candidates of the Labour Party, Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed were present today as the presidential election tribunal resumed sitting.
Also, a former minister of state for labour and employment, Festus Keyamo appeared at the tribunal as a counsel in the legal team of President Bola Tinubu.
Obi and the Labour Party filed a petition challenging the victory of Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, in the February 25, 2023 Presidential election.
In the petition marked CA/PEPC/03/2023, Livy Ozoukwu, lead counsel to LP and Obi, said Tinubu “was not duly elected by the majority of the lawful votes cast at the time of the election”.
Among other allegations, they claimed that Kashim Shettima, vice-president, had a double nomination in contravention of the electoral act.
A proper hearing of the petition commenced on Tuesday and the first witness has been called.
