Supreme Court Begins Hearing In Atiku, Obi’s Petitions Against Tinubu

Nigeria’s Supreme Court is, on Monday, heavily guarded as hearing in the three petitions challenging the election of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu commences.

Heavily armed security personnel cordoned off the court from unaccredited lawyers and litigants.

Daily Post observed that right from the main gate of the apex court, those who have no direct roles were being turned back.

Only lawyers to Tinubu, led by Chief Wole Olanipekun SAN, those of Atiku Abubakar, led by Chris Uche SAN, and those of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), led by Abubakar Mahmoud, were permitted into the Court room.

At the time of this report, the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila; National Security Adviser, Nuhu Ribadu; All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje; National Secretary, Senator Bashir Ajibola; and five others had taken their seats in the courtroom.

Anxiety was also mounting in the courtroom due to lack of confirmation of names of panel members that would hear the petitions.
