By Damilare Adeleye

Vice President Kashim Shettima alongside APC governors, Abdullahi Sule (Nasarawa) and Bala Mohammed (Bauchi); Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje has arrived at the Presidential Election Petition Court, PEPC, sitting in Abuja.

Other APC chieftains at the venue include Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu, Femi Gbajabiamila; National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu, among other dignitaries.

Similarly, the National Chairman of the Labour Party (LP), Julius Abure, has arrived at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

However, the presidential candidate of the LP, Peter Obi, is yet to arrive as at the time of filing in this report.

Other LP chieftains at the court are Senator Ireti Kingibe, the lawmaker representing the FCT in the Red Chambers; and former gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Anambra, Valentine Ozigbo.

The Election Tribunal is to deliver judgment on three petitions seeking to sack President Tinubu from office.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Tinubu, who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the winner of the February 25 election.

However, the result was challenged in court by Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar, who were both presidential candidates of the Labour Party (LP) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), respectively, in the election.
