Tinubu, Shettima tender LP membership register as evidence against Peter Obi


At the resumed hearing of petitions at the court on Wednesday, President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima tendered a copy of the Labour Party, LP, membership register for Anambra State in proof of their argument that Peter Obi is not a registered member of the party.

Tinubu and Shettima had argued, in their response to the petition filed by Obi and the LP, that not being a party member at the time of the 2023 presidential election disqualified Obi from contesting the last election on the platform of the LP.

The document was tendered by Tinubu’s and Shettima’s lawyer, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), along with LP’s letter forwarding the membership register to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Although the lawyer to the petitioners, Livy Uzoukwu objected to the admissibility of the documents, the court, however, admitted them and marked them as Exhibits RA17 and RA18
