But it all appears victory seem glooming for the opposition party, that may have been the reason an emergency meeting of teams of lawyers has been summon by the PDP, possibly to recontest the outcome of the election at the tribunal.
The notice of meeting was sent by Kabir Turaki, former minister of special duties who unsuccessfully sought the presidential ticket of the PDP for the 2019 election. The meeting, which will hold at the Legacy House, Abuja, is expected to start at 4pm.
Turaki, a senior advocate, told invitees to “appear in person” as there will be “no representation please”.
