The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) has been urged to halt the May 29 planned swearing-in of President Muhammadu Buhari for his second term.

The request is contained in motion filed before the tribune by the Hope Democratic Party (HDP) and Ambrose Owuru, identified as the party’s presidential candidate.

HDP and Owuru also seek to restrain the Acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad from administering the oath of office and allegiance on the president.

They want the tribunal to halt the planned inauguration pending the hearing and determination of their petition, challenging the outcome of the last presidential election.

The five-man tribunal, headed by the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, has adjourned to My 22 for the respondents – Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) – to respond.
