The judge fixed the date after listening to the arguments from the plaintiffs; as well as respondents’ counsels on the mode of service of court processes, among others.

 

In the suit, 10 plaintiffs, including nine lawyers, prayed the court to, among others, restrain the LP; its presidential candidate, Peter Obi; his vice-presidential candidate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed; one Julius Abure, and their loyalists from holding the rally; until the hearing and determination of their motion on notice of September 12, 2022.

 

 

Among the plaintiffs are Adedotun Ajulo, Salamatu Lewi, Hakeem Ijaduola, Ogunbona Akinpelu, Owolabi Oluwasegun, and Mogbojuri Kayode.

Meanwhile, Sen. Dino Melaye, the spokesperson for the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign, responded to Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s campaign on Saturday; accusing them of trying to capitalize on the PDP’s internal squabble.

 

He guaranteed that Atiku will not sacrifice those elected by the party for his own ambition; merely to appease authoritarian democrats.

 

His comments are a covert allusion to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State’s threat to leave the PDP.

 

According to him, Atiku would feel content that he did morally even if he unintentionally lost the support of some party members for following the rules.
