The Action Alliance has withdrawn its petition against the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
This action was taken at the ongoing pre-hearing at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Monday in Abuja.
The petitioners had in the petition contended that their real candidate Solomon Okanigbuan was excluded from the list uploaded on the portal of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Upon resumed hearing, the petition by the Action Alliance was called and parties announced their appearances.
The presidential candidate of the party, Solomon Okanigbuan, was in court and the Action Alliance was represented by the chairman of the party, Adekunle Omo-aje who announced his appearance.
The Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, introduced himself as Bola Tinubu’s representative. However the court said Lalong could not represent Tinubu, but the APC.
Following this, Oba Maduabuchi announced his appearance for the AA party.
However, confusion ensued as Malachi Umuebe also announced his appearance for the same party.
But maintaining his stance as the representative of the party, Maduabuchi sought the order of the court to withdraw the petition in its entirety.
