Presidential tribunal on Wednesday dismissed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) motion arguing that Atiku’s lead counsel, Livy Uzoukwu, is not a legal practitioner called to the Nigerian Bar.

The tribunal held that INEC’s allegation is unfounded and that Uzoukwu was indeed called to the Nigerian Bar.

The tribunal also ruled that the lead counsel of the PDP was conferred senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN) in 1992, and proceeded to strike out the motion as filed by INEC.
