Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has arrived at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja on Thursday morning.
The former Vice President is in court for the pre-hearing session of his (Atiku) petition against the President-elect, Bola Tinubu’s victory during the 25 February presidential election.
Atiku had on 8 May filed an application for an order to allow the live coverage of the daily court proceedings on the case they brought against the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, which started on Monday.
Arriving at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, the venue for the tribunal sitting on Thursday, alongside Atiku is Liyel Imoke, a former Governor of Cross River State; former Governor of Adamawa State, Bonny Haruna, former Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, and former PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, among other dignitaries.
Also present at the pre-hearing is the party’s governorship candidate in Kogi State, Senator Dino Melaye.
While Atiku was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Tinubu, a former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu, was the flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress.
It was gathered that the Tribunal will also hear the application by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) challenging the 25 February presidential election.
