The Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, have filed a brief of arguments at the Supreme Court, in furtherance of the petition challenging the win of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 polls.
The development was disclosed in a post via the X platform early on Tuesday morning by actor and chieftain of the party, Kenneth Okonkwo.
He wrote: “To God be the glory, we have filed our Appellants’ Brief of Arguments at the Supreme Court of Nigeria. We still trust in God to see us through. Great kudos to all the members of the Presidential Petition Legal Team of @PeterObi. God will bless all of them.”
