There was mild drama on Wednesday morning as the ‘acting’ chairman of the Labour Party, LP, Lamidi Apapa arrived the premises of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja to attend the continued hearing of the arguments about the outcome of the 2023 presidential elections.
Recall, a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Friday, affirmed Apapa as the acting national chairman of the party pending any other court order.
Following the court order, Lamidi arrived the Appeal Court Abuja for continuation sessions of the pre-hearing of the Presidential Election Tribunal slated to resume today, and attempted to occupy the seat reserved for the National chairman, Julius Abure but was met with resistance from some members of the party, leading to the drama/altercation.
