Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, have filed an appeal at the Supreme Court, challenging the judgment of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT), which dismissed their petitions against the victory of President Bola Tinubu.
The PEPT, in a unanimous judgment on September 6, 2023, dismissed the petition brought forward by Obi and the LP for lack of merit.
However, the petitioners, in their appeal filed on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, expressed dissatisfaction with the PEPT judgment.
The appellants also argued that the PEPT erred in law by dismissing their petitions without considering the weight of evidence they presented.
They urged the Supreme Court to set aside the PEPT judgment.
