Obi, who was the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 election, filed a petition challenging the victory of Tinubu, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal is currently hearing the petition.

In a statement on Saturday, Obi’s lawyer, Awa Kalu (SAN), said that the Labour Party would call 50 witnesses to testify in support of the petition. Kalu said the witnesses would include election officials, voters, and security agents.

Tinubu’s lawyer, Roland Otaru (SAN), said he would call 21 witnesses to defend his client’s victory. The hearing of the petition is scheduled to continue on May 23.

The outcome of the petition could have a significant impact on the political landscape in Nigeria. If Obi is successful in his petition, he could be declared the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
