Reno Omokri, a popular social commentator, has claimed that the legal team of Peter Obi of the Labour Party at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal is an embarrassment.
Omokri, media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, disclosed this in his official Twitter handle on Saturday.
Omokri, a staunch supporter of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said he is disappointed at the nature of the witnesses and evidence Obi’s legal team brought before the Tribunal.
He alleged that Obi’s counsels are making ‘schoolboy errors’ by blundering their schedule of documents and then asking for more time.
He noted that the way Obi’s team is going about the petition will not yield results.
“Peter Obi’s legal team and their witnesses at the Presidential Election Petition Court are simply an embarrassment.
“It was a man boasting that he had all his evidence and witnesses. And look at the type of witnesses they are producing. A mathematics professor blamed his inability to prove that Peter Obi won the #NigerianElections2023 on lack of time.
“Another, Lawrence Nwakaeti, got confused in court. Lawyers who make schoolboy errors by blundering their schedule of documents and then asking for more time. It is not looking good for Peter Obi. Not looking good at all”, he wrote.
On Friday, Peter Obi presented additional witnesses to the Tribunal to prove President Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not win the 25th February election.
