Peter Obi to file appeal at Supreme Court on Tuesday
A Tuesday appeal to the Supreme Court may be filed by Peter Obi's legal team, according to Yunusa Tanko, the spokesperson for the Peter Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council.
According to reports, Obi has no plans to replace any of the attorneys on his legal team.
This was disclosed to reporters by Tanko and Kehinde Edun, the LP's national legal adviser.
“I just confirmed that we have not filed the appeal. That will be done between now and Tuesday.
“We are also not seeking to engage or tweak our team of lawyers,” Tanko said.
Edun said, “We have not filed the appeal yet because we are still within the time frame.
“It will be done any moment from now. Our legal team is still intact. They are some of our best hands.
“There is no reason to change them since we do not doubt their capabilities.”
The Daily Post reports that Peter Obi’s petitions challenging the victory of Bola Tinubu at the 2023 Presidential election were struck out by the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja.
The LP presidential candidate has since vowed to challenge the tribunal's judgment at the apex court.
