Peter Obi files appeal against tribunal judgment


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has appealed against the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC), which upheld the victory of President Bola Tinubu.

He contended that Justice Haruna Tsammani-led’s five-member panel of the Court of Appeal wrongly occasioned a grave miscarriage of justice against him when it held that he did not specify polling units where irregularities occurred during the election.

Mr Obi, in a 50 grounds notice of appeal by his lead counsel, Livy Uzoukwu, SAN, filed in the Supreme Court, challenged the decision of the presidential election tribunal.

Mr Obi equally accused the Justice Tsammani-led panel of erring in law when it relied on paragraphs 4(1) (d) (2) and 54 of the First Schedule to the Electoral Act 2022 to strike out sections of his petition.

While accusing the lower court of breaching his right to a fair hearing, Mr Obi insisted that the evidence of his witnesses was wrongly dismissed as incompetent.
