Peter Obi, Atiku missing as tribunal delivers judgement

The former Vice President and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar Atiku, and the Labour Party’s candidate, Peter Obi, were not present at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal where the judgment on their petitions was to be announced.

Except for the governor of Bauchi State, Bala Mohammed, no other notable politician from the PDP was observed in court.

However, the Labour Party was represented by Julius Abure, the national chairman of the party.

The reason for their absence is unknown as Atiku’s media director, Mr Paul Ibe, did not respond to phone calls.

The Tribunal members, led by Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani, have arrived to deliver judgment on the three petitions.

Justice Tsammani has ordered that the judgment for Peter Obi and the Labour party’s petition be announced first.
