JUST IN: Peter Obi, LP have only three witnesses from three polling units
The All Progressives Congress (APC) said going by what the Labour Party (LP) and Peter Obi filed before the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) they plan to call only three witnesses from three polling units.
APC’s lawyer, Adeniyi Akintola (SAN) told the court on Saturday that the petitioners – Obi and LP – front-loaded only three witness’ statements in relation to three polling units, even though they listed 10 witnesses.
Akintola said he wondered if the petitioners could still be allowed to amend their petition at this stage going by their lawyer’s claim that they now plan to call 50 witnesses.
President open letter
Responding, petitioners’ lawyer, Away Kalu (SAN) said Akintola was not being truthful and that he (Akintola) cannot speak for his clients.
He said the number of witnesses the petitioners plan to call is as stated by him.
