I Am Reminding Peter Obi Now That No Fresh Documents Will Be Allowed In The Supreme Court-Arabambi


After Peter Obi’s case against President Bola Ahmed Tinubu was struck out at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja on Wednesday, Abayomi Arabambi, the factional National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, urged him not to go to the Supreme Court.

Remember that the Independent National Electoral Commission declared that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos State and the current leader of the All Progressives Congress, won the presidency over three other formidable candidates: Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of the Labour Party, and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party?

Peter Obi, candidate for president of the Labour Party, and Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, candidate for president of the People’s Democratic Party, both filed lawsuits challenging Tinubu’s victory before the Presidential Election Tribunal in Abuja. The court dismissed both cases on Wednesday.

I think going to the Supreme Court is just a pure waste of time,” Abayomi Arabambi was quoted as saying in an exclusive interview with the Punch Newspaper. In cases involving the presidency, the Supreme Court does not act as a court of first instance.


He continued, saying, “His solicitors need to tell him where the Appeal Court actually is. If they forget to inform him, I’m telling Obi now that the Supreme Court won’t accept any new evidence. What you have is what they will argue about. Nothing new may be added.”
