Chimamanda joins Peter Obi at presidential tribunal

Chimamanda Adichie

Renowned author Chimamanda Adichie on Tuesday joined the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the February 25 poll, Peter Obi; and his running mate Datti Baba-Ahmed at the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja.

She exchanged pleasantries with them.

The novelist attended court hearing to witness the adoption of the final written address by the Labour Party and Obi.

Prior to the election, Adichie endorsed Obi for the nation’s top job. In April, she also wrote an open letter to United States President Joe Biden not to congratulate Bola Tinubu, claiming that the presidential election was flawed.

Former Vice President and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party Atiku Abubakar also attended the hearing.

The tribunal has resumed hearing in the adoption of written addresses by the petitioners.
