Acting National Chairman, Labour Party, Lamidi Apapa, has returned to the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Friday, despite being booed out out on Wednesday.
Gatekeepers News reports that the Presidential Candidate of the Party, Peter Obi, was also present when the tribunal resumed on Friday.
Apapa, on Thursday, maintained he would return to the tribunal in Abuja.
He said, “Maybe by the next one, I will be recognised,” adding that he tried to attend the proceeding on Wednesday to assert his authority as the party’s acting national chairman.
Apapa was spotted seated at the back of the courtroom as opposed to the area reserved for Labour Party representatives.
Two days ago, Apapa attempted to occupy one of the seats reserved for LP leaders. Some party members, however, resisted it, leading to a shouting match.
Meanwhile, the tribunal refused to take an appearance for the LP as the two camps presented representatives.
Justice Haruna Tsamani noted that if two persons are making an appearance for the party, they will not be put on record.
The tribunal adjourned the matter till today for continuation of pre-hearing.
