Presidential tribunal delivers judgment on Buhari's inauguration

The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal which commenced proceedings earlier today has gone on a 30 minutes break

It was gathered that  Hope Democratic Party (HDP)who challenged the election of President Muhammadu Buhari through its counsel had informed the tribunal of two applications which led to the postponement of the tribunal.

Naija News learnt that one of the applications is for leave of court to amend their brief and also an order of the tribunal restraining President Buhari from presenting himself for the inauguration.

The party also wants the court to stop the acting CJN from swearing-in the President.

According to them, if the President is allowed to be sworn-in it will prejudice their case. President Buhari on his part, through his lawyers, is asking the tribunal to strike out the petition of the HDP for lacking merit.
