Tribunal Fixes Monday To Rule On Obi’s Request For Live Broadcast Of Proceedings

The Presidential Election Petitions Court sitting in Abuja has adjourned till Monday to rule on a motion filed by Labour Party and Peter Obi seeking live broadcast of proceedings.

On Friday, the petitioners’ lawyer, Awa Kalu SAN, urged the court to grant his motion for public interest sake.

But the lawyers representing the Independent National Electoral Commission, President-elect Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress, opposed the motion.

“Ruling is reserved to Monday, meanwhile, pre-hearing session will continue on Saturday by 10 am,” the five-man panel of the court led by Justice Haruna Tsammani held.

Recall that Obi’s petition is seeking the annulment of Tinubu’s victory.
