Atiku vs Buhari

PDP, Atiku Presents First Witness

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the 2019 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar have started calling witnesses at the resumed hearing of the presidential election petition tribunal on Monday.

The first witness they called is Buba Galadima, a well-known critic of President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration.

Galadima is also one of the spokesmen of the PDP presidential campaign team.


Meanwhile, as earlier reported by Naija News, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Monday, stormed the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal for the first time.

Oshiomhole arrived the courtroom at about 9:36 a.m. a few minutes before the panel led by Justice Mohammed Garba commenced sitting.

He was sat in between the pioneer Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and leader of the APC from Adamawa State, Nuhu Ribadu, to his right, and a PDP leader, Tom Ikimi, to his left.


Recall Atiku and his party had lined up 400 witnesses against Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) challenging the February 23 presidential election victory.
