BREAKING: Tribunal Fixes Date For Final Arguments Over Buhari’s Victory

Date:

The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, PET, on Thursday fixed August 21 for final arguments in the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

This followed the decision by President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, the last two respondents to the petition, to close their case on Thursday.

The Petitioners are by their petition challenging the victory of Buhari and the APC at the February 23, 2019, Presidential poll.

The other respondent, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had earlier closed its case without calling any witness.

Buhari’s Legal Team which called seven witnesses between Tuesday and Wednesday closed its case without calling an additional witness on Thursday.

The APC’s Team also said on Thursday that it would not call any witness.

The five-man Tribunal led by Justice Mohammed Garba subsequently gave the three respondents to file and serve on the Petitioners their final written addresses within three days starting from Monday (August 5).

The Tribunal gave the Petitioners seven days from the time they are served to file and serve on the respondents their final written addresses.

It gave the respondents two days to, if necessary, file their final addresses in reply to the Petitioners’ addresses.

Justice Mohammed announced that the closing of final addresses would close on August 16.

He then fixed August 21 for the adoption of the final addresses by the Lawyers representing the parties in the case.
