The petitioners named INEC, Obaseki and the APC as first, second and third respondents respectively.
At the resumed hearing, the petitioners’ lawyer, Mr Yusuf Ali, SAN, informed the tribunal that he was ready to open his case, saying “we are ready to tender all non contentious certified true copies(CTC) from the bar.
“And we have also carefully listed the documents we intended to be tendered for easy perusal by the tribunal,’’ he said.
