The lead counsel to the Buhari Legal team, Chief Wole Olanipekun after the usual introduction of teams informed the court that the team has studied the petition of the petitioners, the replies, the hardware and the software, evidences and that they are also very satisfied with the evidence they have provided before the court and will now close their case on point of law.
Chief Fagbemi of the APC rose to respond and also opened their case in court as the 3rd Respondent.
He also said that they are grateful to Chief Olanipekun and most grateful to the petitioners, the PDP and Atiku/Obi
That the APC will not be involved in any other overkill exercise on the matter
He therefore announced that they are satisfied with the case as they opened and closes their case as the 3rd Respondent without presenting any evidence or witness.
He however announced that they wish to begin submitting written final addresses in court on Monday 5th August, 2019.
This request was supported by all the parties in the case including INEC.
Dr. Livy Uzoukwu of the PDP and Atiku/Obi, while agreeing to the request, thanked the Buhari and the APC for not wasting the time of the court and that of the petitioners on the matter since the issue before the court is clear and further requested that the petitioners be given seven days for their own submission of final written addresses.
