The court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Wednesday granted permission to Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to serve his petition challenging the results of the February 23 election, on Presidential Buhari, declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The three-man court granted an ex-parte application by Atiku and the PDP and directed that the petition be served on Buhari through substituted means.

Speaking on it, Justice And Aboki who read the ruling said it is the interest of justice to grant the petitioner application and the President be served through an official or the APC in Abuja.
