Election Tribunal: PDP, Atiku Miss Chance To Present 400 Witnesses In 10 Days by kahal29: 4:56pm On Jul 12
The chance of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar in the Feb.23 presidential election to present 400 witnesses listed in their petition against President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election within the remaining three days continued to tick away.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that all parties in the matter had agreed to open and close their cases within specified period.

The parties, therefore, agreed to workable modalities in the management of time to ensure the petition was dispensed within the 180 days allowed by the Electoral Act.

Flowing from the agreement, the ten days allotted to the petitioners to open and close their argument which commenced on July 4 would expire on July 17.

NAN reports that all the respondents were also given six days to present their responses to the petitioners’ allegations.

In light of this, the respondents are expected to open their separate defences between July 18 and July 25.

To the chagrin of visitors to the tribunal on Friday, the petitioners had urged to the court to adjourn until July 15.

Chief Chris Uche, SAN, Counsel for the petitioners had informed the tribunal that their witnesses earmarked for the day could be reached.

Uche said the witnesses who were based in Zamfara State were attacked by arms men while on their way to Abuja on Thursday.

Dr Livy Uzoukwu, SAN, the lead counsel for the petitioners, rose to complement the information been availed the tribunal by Uche, adding that the witnesses were yet to found.

“My Lords, it is true that those we have listed to present for further testimonies were attacked while coming to Abuja from Zamfara state, and therefore it will be impracticable to go further.

“ We pray for an adjournment until Monday, July 15 for continuation’’, Uzoukwu said.

So far, the petitioners have tendered 31,287 exhibits to prove various allegations of malpractice in the poll, but have presented less than 60 out of the 400 witnesses.

Earlier, Mr Oseni Haruna, Local Government Area Collation Agent for PDP told the court that violence and over voting marred the process, but was unable to provide cogent evidence to substantiate those claims.

Who told u they are up to 400?

Atiku has seen that the witnesses are useless hence he stopped paying them.

My own s that Atiku should go back to his country.

Atiku the joker. His case will be like that of the Adeleke’s. PDP members and lawyers would milk him till the Supreme Court dismisses the case. Thereafter, the party hustlers will organize another get together to appoint him as PDP candidate for 2023 just to keep the milk flowing. Baba go don get sense by that time and he will reject the offer like Deji Adeleke did for the Adeleke family. grin grin grin

The man and his party are just waisting their time. Anyway,i m so happy for his lawyers and witnesses.

grin This is hilarious.


How is it possible to present 400 witnesses within 10 days, when the other party will also cross examine such witnesses.

This case seems to be more for propaganda than for actual winning.

The South west, south east, and south south need to come together against the North. This is our only hope of defeating the long term Islamisation of Nigeria. Its a grand plan to hold power infinity in Nigeria. Tinubu and his friends just see their own cut and money in this power game. My yoruba friends join the other southern and middle belt family and we can win elections easily to defeat this purpose. DEMOCRACY IS A GAME OF NUMBERS...... cool

. It is not possible to call 400 witnesses within ten days...There must be cross examination of witnesses by the respondent lawyers. Besides the number of witnesses does not win a case but their SUBSTANCE does....Most witnesses nowadays are coached witnesses who will contradict themselves.
