Election Petition: Tribunal orders substituted service on Buhari

The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Wednesday granted the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, permission to serve the processes of the case through a substituted service on President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The permission was granted by the tribunal following an ex parte motion moved by the lead counsel of the PDP, Mr. Chris Uche, SAN.
The legal team had said it expressed considerable obstacles in its efforts to serve court processes on President Buhari.

The Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Abdul Aboki, thereafter, granted the permission sought.

He then directed that a substituted service be effected on the President to enable him receive the required court processes on the matter.
He thereafter adjourned further hearing on the case indefinitely until proof of service could be produced by the PDP legal team
