The Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, have opened their petition against President Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, and the Independent National Electoral Commission, by calling one witness out of the 50 proposed. The hearing commenced, led in evidence by Jibrin Okutepa, with an Anambra-based lawyer and LP witness, Lawrence Nwakaeti, tendering the certified true copy of the US district court judgement. Before the witness testified, counsel to Peter Obi, Jibrin Okutepa, tendered a judgement from a district court in the United States, which reportedly indicted Tinubu and ordered his forfeiture of $460,000 in drug-related offences. After cross-examination, counsel to Tinubu, Wole Olanipekun, said the witness admitted that the judgement was not registered in Nigeria.
