BREAKING: TRIBUNAL OPEN HEARING ON ATIKU’S CASE WITH THREE MAN PANEL

A three-man panel set up to hear the motion ex-parte filed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar and his party has commenced hearing today.

At the hearing which is still ongoing at the moment of this report, Atiku and PDP’s attorney, Chris Uche (SAN), argues that the presidential candidate should be allowed to inspect materials used for the February 23 presidential election.

The panel of the presidential election tribunal is led by Justice Abdul Aboki, The Nation reports.

Recall that the expanded caucus of the PDP on Monday, March 4, said it has resolved to head to the election tribunal following the outcome of the 2019 presidential election which took place on Saturday, February 23.

The party’s caucus said it will not renege on plan by the PDP and its presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar in seeking legal redress over the election.

Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng earlier reported that Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), the national intervention movement co-chairman on Wednesday, March 6, said the Atiku would face an uphill battle to upturn Presidential Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the election petition tribunal.

He said Abubakar would have to prove that there were electoral irregularities and that they affected the election results.

Agbakoba, a Life Bencher who chairs the Peoples Trust Party (PTP) and the third force political parties, said he was misquoted in his earlier statement to say that Atiku would lose at the tribunal.

The former Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) president believes the presidential election results were “manifestly riddled” with electoral irregularities.

He, however, emphasised that Atiku is constitutionally entitled to approach the tribunal.
