PHOTOS: Obi, Datti, Keyamo in attendance as tribunal resumes hearing



Peter Obi and Datti Baba-Ahmed, presidential and vice-presidential candidates of the Labour Party (LP), are in attendance at the presidential election tribunal.


Festus Keyamo, former minister of state for labour and employment, is also present at the tribunal and appearing as a counsel in the legal team of President Bola Tinubu.


Obi and the LP filed a petition challenging the victory of Tinubu, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in the 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.


The petitioners indicated they would call 50 witnesses to prove their case.


A proper hearing of the petition commenced on Tuesday and the first witness has been called.
