The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) and a key petitioner, was notably absent from the courtroom of the presidential election petition tribunal.
This intriguing turn of events came to light when the petitioners and respondents were invited to introduce themselves before the bench.
Julius Abure, the embattled Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), played a vital role, as Vice President Kashim Shettima did the same for President Bola Tinubu.
In a surprising turn of events, it’s reported that Peter Obi, the presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party (LP), was notably absent from the crucial proceedings at the presidential election petition tribunal, which is reaching a climax this Wednesday, September 6th.
Investigations spearheaded by the dedicated team at WOTHAPPEN.COM reveal that in Obi’s absence, the courtroom representation was shouldered by none other than the beleaguered Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure.
Tsammani, presiding over a panel of five tribunal members, asked those present to introduce themselves as either petitioners or defendants.
Standing in for the absent former Anambra State governor was none other than the Labour Party Chairman, Abure. Vice President Kashim Shettima was also present, introducing himself as the first respondent. The All Progressives Congress Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, filled in for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who was out of the country in India on official duties.
The Case Against Tinubu and APC
The victory of President Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election has been under the tribunal’s microscope for several weeks, with a number of allegations being brought against him.
Among the accusations is a rather serious one of drug trafficking, for which he was allegedly convicted in the United States of America many years ago.
Then there’s the question of dual citizenship, with allegations suggesting that Tinubu is also a citizen of the Republic of Guinea. The legitimacy of his academic credentials from the Chicago State University (CSU) is another bone of contention.
Other allegations thrown into the mix by the petitioners include manipulation of results, overvoting, delay in electronic transmission of results, a suspicious twenty-five per cent of votes in FCT, and a claim of double nomination involving VP Kashim Shettima.
