PEPC fixes date to rule on Obi, LP’s request for live streaming of proceedings


The Justice Haruna Tsammani-led five-member Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has reserved ruling till Monday on the application by Peter Obi and the Labour Party (LP) for live streaming of the proceedings of the court.

Justice Tsammani announced this after lawyers to parties adopted their various processes.

Lawyer to Obi and the LP, Awa Kalu (SAN) urged the court to grant the application in the interest of the public.

Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN) for INEC, Wole Olanipekun (SAN) for Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettma, and Adeniyi Akintola (SAN) for the APC moved their various counter affidavits and prayed the court to reject the application for being without merit and constituting a distraction to the court.


The court has adjourned till Saturday for further pre-hearing session in the petition.
