Procedures have been slowed down at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) attributable to a solicitation by Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar’s legal advisor, Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), and Atiku Abubakar himself.
At the point when the case was referenced a brief time after 10 am, on Wednesday, Uzoukwu told the five-person board council, that he has an application, which he would like to move in chambers.
He looked for the comprehension of different legal counselors for the situation, following which it concurred that the council suspends sitting and tune in to the issues the legal advisor to the PDP and Atiku wish to raise.
Following understanding by the legal counselors that each gathering is spoken to, in the chamber meeting, by three attorneys every, council’s Chairman and President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa remained down procedures, to continue later.
A portion of the political fat cats in court include: Chairman, PDP, Uche Secondus (spoke to his gathering); previous Chairman, Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Nuhu Ribadu (speaking to President Muhammadu Buhari), and last part, Lagos State House of Assembly and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Babatunde Ogala (for the gathering).
