Tribunal: Withdraw Petition Against Tinubu – Apapa LP Faction Tells Obi

The Lamidi Apapa faction of Labour Party (LP) has urged its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to step down his case at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal for lack of merit.

According to the faction, the advice became necessary following the incident which happened at the tribunal on Thursday.

Gists9ja recalls that the court had stepped down hearing of the petition filed by Obi and the LP against the election of President Bola Tinubu.

The factional national publicity secretary, Abayomi Arabambi, raised these issues during a press conference in Abuja.

He told journalists that Obi has failed to provide any concrete evidence to back this claims since the tribunal began sitting.

His words: “We have followed with keen interest the shameful developments and approach by the so-called legal team assembled by Peter Obi challenging the outcome of the February 25 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission and we have, like many Nigerians, come to the conclusion that Obi is not only taking Nigerians for a ride but would continue to waste the hard earned resources donated by Nigerians for this purpose to even enrich himself the more.

“All of you here who have been following this case can recall that the day we had altercation in court with (Julius) Abure’s group, that INEC announced that Peter Obi could not pay for CTC form EC08 and other documents. That now compelled them to only present 30 per cent of the materials they would need for the hearing at Election Petition Tribunal.

“How would any right thinking person go to election tribunal with only 30 per cent of documents where none of all them would be accepted or agreed to be tendered by other political parties?

“Three days ago, they said two of their counsels were sick and yesterday (Thursday), they could not even file a single process with the array of SANs with Obi. This is what we have been saying that they are just trying to hoodwink the public, deceiving the Obidients and giving them false hope that they have something at the tribunal.”
