Nigeria's previous Vice President and presidential competitor of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar and his gathering have requested additional time from the five-man Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja, to finish up their case.
Friday is the remainder of the ten days dispensed to them to end their case.
The candidates, who just on Thursday got from the Independent National Electoral Commission a stack of archives to be offered as a show, gave the insight that they would not have the option to finish up their case on Friday through their legal counselor Chief Chris Uche (SAN).
The PUNCH reports that the records got from INEC ascended from 55 containers as of when the court shut procedures on Thursday to 75 as of Friday morning.
Uche framed his solicitation for additional time as "an alteration of the pre-hearing report" in which 10 days duration was dispensed to the solicitors to display their case and six days for every one of the respondents to exhibit their protection.
Prior, Justice Mohammed Garba who heads the five-man council, had said the court would not have the evening session of the Friday's procedures for undisclosed reasons.
Responding, Buhari's legal counselor, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), demanded that should the court award the "augmentation of time" it ought to be no matter how you look at it for all the three respondents – INEC, Buhari and the All Progressives Congress.
Olanipekun likewise proposed that the court could just repay the solicitors' time that would be lost since the court would not sit toward the evening by being permitted to close their case in the first part of the day session of the following sitting day.
Yet, the court said that the solicitors had not requested an expansion of time but rather for an alteration of the pre-hearing session.
