Amid palpable tension and anxiety that has gripped the nation's political landscape over the commencement of proceedings at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, photos showing the number of Nigerians that stormed the Court of Appeal premises in Abuja on Monday morning, May 22, 2023, has surfaced online.
It is no longer news that the Labour Party Presidential candidate and former governor of Anambra State, Peter Gregory Obi, is challenging the declaration of the former governor of Lagos State and Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu, as the winner of the February 25th Presidential election.
It should be recalled that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had announced Bola Tinubu as the President-elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. However, following Bola Tinubu's victory, Peter Gregory Obi and the PDP had filed a petition against Bola Tinubu's victory, seeking for the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to upturn Bola Tinubu's victory.
Based on these notes, photos showing the moment Nigerians in Abuja stormed the Court of Appeal premises this morning demanding justice and the return of their stolen mandate has surfaced online.
