APM’s Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Oyetola Atoyebi, informed the court during the pre-hearing session on Tuesday that his client has responded to questions from the pre-hearing session.

According to Abubakar Mahmoud, a SAN who is representing INEC, the commission submitted its responses to the pre-hearing questions on May 5. “We have three applications listed,” Mr. Mahmoud said, “and we will move the applications when it is appropriate.”

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), a rival party, is running a presidential candidate named Atiku Abubakar, and the party is requesting that the court recognise him as the election’s winner another petition is being pursued by Atiku Abubakar.
