Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting that took place at the FCT in Abuja, on Wednesday brought out an application filed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking to strike out the petition of the PDP, and its presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, Alh. Atiku Abubakar, for not joining the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The Tribunal says that the appeal issued by INEC was not competent enough, as not including the Vice President cannot make Atiku's petition incompetent.
Based upon this ruling, judgment on the main issue will, then continue.
Tension is already very high in the air ahead of the presidential tribunal's which is now set to rule on the petition by Atiku and PDP seeking to disqualify President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the last presidential election.
The presidential delegation that was led by the chief of staff to Buhari, Abba Kyari is already seated in the courtroom.
Some of these people are the Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the federation, Abubakar Malami, National chairman the APC, Adams Oshiomhole, Ministers of Works and Housing, Raji Fashola, Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, Minister of State, Niger Delta, Festus Kayamo among others.
Atiku and PDP are the petitioners while President Muhammadu Buhari, the ruling All Progressives Congress and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, are the respondents.
