The exact reasons for the absence of Atiku and Peter Obi remained unclear as attempts to reach Atiku’s media director, Mr. Paul Ibe, for clarification through phone calls went unanswered.

At the time of this report, the Tribunal members, led by Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani, had convened to deliver their judgments in the three petitions.

Justice Tsammani initiated the proceedings by ordering that the verdict in Peter Obi’s petition and that of the Labour Party be delivered first.
