The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has scheduled ruling for 10am tomorrow on whether or not to consolidate the three petitions by Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP); Peter Obi and the Labour Party (LP) and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

The Presiding Justice Justice Haruna Tsammani announced this today while adjourning further proceedings in the petitions till tomorrow at 10am.

Justice Tsammani ‘s announcement followed the argument by lawyers to parties, with the petitioners urging the court to consolidate, while the respondents, except the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), argued against consolidation.

INEC’s lawyer, Kemi Pinheiro (SAN) said his client was neither for nor against consolidation, but will abide by the court’s position on the issue.
