The Labour Party (LP) and Peter Obi, its presidential candidate, informed the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) on Thursday that they were only interested in contesting the results of the last election in 18 states.
This was stated by their attorney, Emeka Okpoko (SAN), at the start of the hearing on Thursday. They want to submit election papers from the 18 states, he stated.
He was however only able to tender result sheets from six out of the 18 states before asking for an adjournment.
The respondents – the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), President Bola Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettma and the All Progressives Congress (APC) objected to the admissibility of the documents, promising to provide their reasons at the filing of their final written addresses.
Further hearing in the petition has been shifted till 9am on Friday.
