Atiku Storms Courtroom For Hearing Of His Petition Against Tinubu

By Damilare Adeleye

The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP], Atiku Abubakar, on Thursday, stormed the Presidential Election Petition Court sitting in Abuja to observe proceedings in the case he filed to challenge the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.

The Nigerian Voice recalls that Atiku and his party are challenging the declaration of Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress [APC] as the winner of the presidential election.

Among other things, the former Vice-president is seeking the withdrawal of the Certificate of Return that was issued to Tinubu by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Atiku, who has since filed an application for live coverage of day-to-day proceedings on his petition, arrived at the courtroom around 8:35 am, accompanied by his friends and well wishes, among whom included the governorship candidate of the PDP for the forthcoming governorship in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye.
