The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has resumed sitting with the hearing of the Labour Party petition.
Commencing proceedings, the court allocated three hours for the hearing of the petition by the LP and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
But, when asked by the court how many witnesses they have in court for the commencement of their case, their lawyer, Livy Uzoukwu (SAN) said the petitioners have only one witness in court today.
Meanwhile, Justice Haruna Tsammani who-led five-member panel adjourned till Friday to hear the petition by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), challenging the nomination of Kashim Shettma as a replacement for Kabir Masari as the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The adjournment is to enable the lawyer to the APM, Shehu Abubakar, and other parties to obtain copies of the May 26 judgment of the Supreme Court on the appeal by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) challenging the APC’s nomination of Shettima, which the PDP had termed double nomination.
