The sitting of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal is ongoing today, and our Kaduna editor is reporting live from the venue.

This is the first sitting after the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa officially recused herself from the Panel.

One major change today is the relaxed security situation within and around the venue of the Court of Appeal unlike in the previous sittings where police and other security agencies, barricaded roads leading to the court. Today, June 10, 2019, there is free flow of traffic along the Shehu Shagari way and its environs. However, there are still presence of security agents at the entrance of the Appeal Court.

Justice Mohammed Garba has been appointed to replace Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa as the chairman of the 2019 Presidential Election Petition Tribunal. Until his appointment, Justice Mohammed Garba was the presiding Judge of the Lagos State Division of the Court of Appeal.

The Tribunal is currently in session.
