Again, Court adjourns Obi’s petition against Tinubu


The Presidential Election Petition Court has adjourned to Friday, May 19, 2023, the pre-hearing of the petition against the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, by the Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

The court headed by Justice Haruna Tsammani fixed the date, following the failure of parties in the petition to agree on documents among other reasons.

Earlier on Wednesday, AF24NEWS reported that there was drama at the Presidential when the two factions of the Labour Party clashed.

Trouble started when Lamidi Apapa, factional chairman of the party, walked into the court premises alongside some of his supporters.


Apapa who is locked in a battle with Julius Abure, the suspended chairman of the party, had arrived at the court for the case of a petition which Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of the party, filed against the victory of President-elect Bola Tinubu.


Although Abure was not in court, some key members of the party, including Akin Osuntokun, Director-General of the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign were on ground.

They engaged the Apapa faction in a shouting match.

“Who are you?” a party official asked Apapa, who fired back saying, “Who are you too?”
