After all the filings, preliminary injuctions, motions and counter motions in the early sparring of what promises to be drama-filled sessions in the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, the real deal kicked off today at the Appeal Court in Abuja, and will race as the Tribunal will sit every day, including weekends to beat the 180 days deadline that started counting since the election date.
I know this country and how it works but I know HE Peter Obi even more. Even though this petition is mostly about HE Atiku Abubakar, who has all the pedigree to recover his mandate singlehandedly but believe me, my optimism is hinged on the man I know rather well.
Because the former governor of Anambra State is ever interested in what will benefit public good and always does things the right and conscientious way, God has never abandoned him in fights. And more, those fights are usually justifiable.
I wouldn’t go to a level of subjugation but believe me when I tell you that this AtikuObi mandate is coming home. If anyone would be involved in any legal battle that lacks merit, definitely not that man I know very well.
