Share this article

On Thursday, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, appeared in the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja to observe proceedings in the case he filed challenging the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.

Atiku and his party are contesting the declaration of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the presidential election and are seeking the withdrawal of Tinubu’s Certificate of Return issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The pre-hearing session of the petition was scheduled to continue before Justice Haruna Tsammani-led’s five-member panel.

Atiku had previously applied for live coverage of day-to-day proceedings on his petition.

He arrived at the courtroom around 8:35 am, accompanied by supporters, including the PDP’s governorship candidate for the forthcoming Kogi State election, Senator Dino Melaye.
