The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, on Wednesday struck out an application filed by the Independent National Electorial Commission, INEC, seeking to strike out the petition of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its presidential candidate in 2019 general elections, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for not joining the Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The Tribunal said the appeal by INEC was incompetent, as not including the Vice President cannot make Atiku’s petition incompetent.
Consequent upon this ruling, judgment on the main issue will, therefore continue.
Tension is already high in the air ahead of the presidential tribunal’s which is now set to rule on the petition by Atiku and PDP seeking to disqualify President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the last presidential election.
