The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, on Monday, appeared at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja, since its inaugural sitting which began on June 10.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar, had filed a petition before the tribunal challenging the victory of APC and its candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, in the February 23 Presidential election.
Oshiomhole reportedly arrived the courtroom at about 9:36 a.m. barely some few minutes before the five-man panel led by Justice Mohammed Garba started sitting.
It was gathered that he sat in between the pioneer Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and leader of the APC from Adamawa State, Nuhu Ribadu.
When the proceedings began, Oshiomhole announced himself as representing both Buhari and the APC, the second and the third respondents to the petition.
A PDP leader, Tom Ikimi and the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan also represented the PDP at the tribunal.
