The Court of Appeal has a five-member panel of judges presiding over the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, with Justice Haruna Tsammani as the head. The other panel members are Justice Stephen Adah, Justice Misitura Bolaji-Yusuf, Justice Boloukuoromo Moses Ugo, and Justice Abbah Mohammed.

During the pre-hearing on Monday, there was tight security as police officers blocked off the road leading to the court.

The panel of judges headed by Justice Tsammani declared it would start its pre-hearing session today, focusing on three petitions.

These petitions include the ones submitted by Action Alliance (AA) with the reference number CA/PEPC/01/2023, Action Peoples Party (APP) with the reference number CA/PEPC/02/2023, and Peter Obi & Labour Party (LP) with the reference number CA/PEPC/03/2023.
