The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal sitting at the Court of Appeal in Abuja has stood down its proceedings for 30 minutes after objections to the application requesting the President of the Court of Appeal to step down.

The 30 minutes break followed the objections made by the All Progressives Congress (APC), President Muhammadu Buhari and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) opposing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar’s application asking the PCA to recuse herself from the hearing over her family’s links to the APC.

At the hearing today, PDP’s lead counsel, Levy Uzoukwu (SAN), informed the tribunal that the team was just served with the responses by the parties adding that they would require time to read and reply orally.
