Presidential Tribunal: Supreme Court Did Not Strike Out PDP And Atiku/Obi’s Petition

Presidential Tribunal: Supreme Court DID not strike out PDP and Atiku/Obi’s Petition. Please be guided.



It would be recalled that Freshreporters News earlier posted that the Supreme Court has Striked Out Atiku, PDP’s Appeal.


As seen on the Party’s Handle:- The Case that was determined today by the Justice Dattijio Mohammed led five man panel of the Supreme Court, was an appeal filed by the PDP and Atiku/Obi on a ruling of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal concerning an application made by the APC to withdraw one of the replies made to the Petitioners’ Petition.

The APC had erroneously made two replies to one of PDP and Atiku/Obi’s petitions but later came to the court room and apply to withdraw the very reply the PDP and Atiku/Obi had replied to, thereby adopting the one not replied to.

This request was later granted by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal and the PDP and Atiku/Obi had gone to the Supreme Court, seeking the leave of court to grant the party fair hearing.

Note

Please note that the main petition is still before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal and the adoption of the final written addresses by various parties will take place on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, Venue of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
