The petition filed by Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s (LP) candidate for president in 2023, against President-elect Bola Tinubu, has been postponed by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPC) in Abuja till Saturday, May 20.

Recall that Tinubu’s victory is being contested because to alleged INEC irregularities by Peter Obi, who finished third in the 2023 presidential election.

According to Newsmen, the five-member PEPC, presided over by Justice Haruna Tsammani, opted to postpone making a decision about the request for live streaming of court proceedings submitted by Peter Obi and the Labour Party (LP).

On Monday, May 22, Tsammani stated that the decision regarding the motion for the television broadcast would be made.


In order to protect the public’s right to access information, the attorney defending Obi and the LP, Awa Kalu (SAN), fervently asked the court to approve the application.

However, Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN), speaking on behalf of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Wole Olanipekun (SAN), Bola Tinubu, Kashim Shettima, and the All Progressives Congress (APC), as well as Adeniyi Akintola (SAN), speaking on behalf of the APC, presented their counter affidavits and begged the court to deny the application.

They said that the application lacked merit and would divert the court’s attention.
