President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima submitted a copy of the Labour Party membership register for Anambra State as evidence to support their claim that Peter Obi is not a registered member of the party.
Gists9ja reports that Tinubu and Shettima, in response to the petition filed by Obi and the Labour Party, said that Obi, who allegedly wasn’t a party member during the last presidential election, was ineligible to contest the election under the LP’s banner.
During the defence proceedings at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC), their legal representative, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), presented the membership register along with a letter from the Labour Party, dated April 25, 2022, which was addressed to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), as supporting documents.
Although objections were raised by the petitioners’ lawyer, Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), the court admitted the documents as Exhibits RA17 and RA18.
