In furtherance of the case contesting the win of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 election in Nigeria, the Labour Party (LP) and its 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi, have submitted a brief of arguments to the Supreme Court.

An actor and party chieftain named Kenneth Okonkwo announced the news in a post on the X platform early on Tuesday morning.

“To God be the glory, we have filed our Appellants’ Brief of Arguments at the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

"We still trust in God to see us through. Great kudos to all the members of the Presidential Petition Legal Team of @PeterObi. God will bless all of them", the post reads.


The filing is an appeal against the Court of Appeal's ruling in the suit brought by Obi and the Labour Party to challenge Tinubu's victory, which was handed out on September 6, 2023.

It further stated that the appeal is based on a notice of appeal submitted on September 19, 2023, which contained 51 reasons for appeal.

The All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Senator Kashim Shettima, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are listed as respondents in the case.
