Tinubu and Shettima tender LP membership register to prove claim of Obi not being a member of the party



President Bola Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima have backed up their argument of Peter Obi not being a member of Labour Party by producing an alleged register of the party for Anambra state.

Tinubu and Shettima had claimed that Obi was not qualified to contest in the last presidential election on the platform of the Labour Party because he is not a member of the opposition party.

Their lawyer, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) tendered the register along with LP’s letter, dated April 25, 2022 forwarding the membership register to the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Though Obi and Labour Party’s lawyer, Livy Uzoukwu (SAN) objected to the admission of the documents, the court admitted them and marked them as Exhibits RA17 and RA18.
