Tribunal Adjourns Hearing In Peter Obi vs. Tinubu After INEC Witnesses Fail To Appear

The hearing of the petition filed by Peter Obi, the presidential candidate for the Labour Party, was adjourned by the Presidential Election Petition Court on Monday.
Due to the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) incapacity to present its case due to a lack of witnesses, the court adjourned the hearing until Tuesday, July 4, 2023.
Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN), the lawyer for INEC, informed the court that although his client intended to call three witnesses within three days, the one scheduled for Monday is unable to do so due to family obligations.
Mahmoud then requested an adjournment until Tuesday so the witness could show up in court.
Other parties’ lawyers, including Lateef Fagbemi (SAN) for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Wole Olanipekun (SAN) for President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettma, and Livy Uzoukwu (SAN) for Obi/LP, did not oppose to Mahmoud’s request.
Justice Haruna Tsammani, the presiding justice, decided to adjourn the hearing till Tuesday at 9 am.
