Why Peter Obi was absent at Supreme Court

Earlier, Peter Obi explained the reason for his absence at the Supreme Court during the appeal hearing filed against the PEPT verdict.

Obi said his absence was due to a pre-arranged international commitment.

He added that he received the notice for the apex court judgement while travelling outside the country.

How Supreme Court allegedly abandoned its responsibility

Obi alleged that the Supreme Court "abandoned its responsibility as a court of law and policy" in its verdict upholding President Bola Tinubu's electoral victory.

He said the apex court's decision to affirm President Tinubu's election "contradicts the overwhelming evidence of election rigging, false claim of technical glitch, and substantial non-compliance with rules set by INEC".
