Breaking: Peter Obi Witness Exposes INEC/APC Presidential Day “Glitch Claim” as Fake- PEPC

Tribunal: Anarchy Reigns Supreme When Rule Of Law Is Truncated, Obi’s Lawyer Replies Tinubu

Labour Party and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi have rubbished a written address filed by Bola Tinubu of All Progressives Congress (APC) following the ongoing petition challenging the latter’s victory at the Presidential Election Tribunal Court (PEPC).

In the written address dated July 14, the 2nd and 3rd respondents led by Wole Olanipekun (SAN), faulted the claims of Obi’s witnesses while warning the Tribunal that misinterpreting the law as provided for in the constitution on the 25% of lawful votes cast in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, could “lead to absurdity, chaos, anarchy and alteration of the very intention of the legislature.”

In a counterattack, the petitioners in their final written address filed by Obi’s lead counsel, Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), to the 2nd and 3rd respondents, said there will only be anarchy if the rule of law is truncated.

“This is a cheap, misguided, and destructive blackmail clearly intended to target the country’s judicialism and constitutionalism. It also aims at cannibalising our democracy.

“When has it become offensive for Petitioners to canvass a ground prescribed for the challenge of an election in section 134(1)(b) of the Electoral Act? Desperation taken too far can be extremely dangerous. Let the 2nd and 3rd Respondents (Tinubu and Shettima) know that where the rule of law is trampled upon or truncated, anarchy reigns supreme,” the written address partly read.
