An ‘overcomer’s open-air thanksgiving service’ was also scheduled for May 25.
The events are to hold at the party’s national chapel, PDP National Secretariat, Wadata Plaza, Wuse Zone 5, Abuja, and time is slated at 12 pm daily.
Recall that the Presidential Election Petition Court had adjourned Atiku’s case to May 18 for the continuation of the pre-hearing of the petition by the PDP and Atiku against the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, of the All Progressives Congress.
In the petition marked CA/PEPC/05/2023, the PDP and Atiku are challenging the declaration of Tinubu as the president-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, Tinubu and the APC were listed as first to third respondents in the petition.
The pre-hearing of the petition was taken first on Thursday morning after counsel for Atiku and PDP, Chris Uche (SAN), indicated an interest in the matter.
The seven-day fast, announced by the Chairman of the PDP Christian Religious Body, Presidential Campaign Council, Boni Haruna, was tagged, ‘At the Supreme Court of Heaven with Chief Justice of Universe’.
The announcer noted that the prayer was to “denounce the Independent National Electoral Commission’s president-select and rescue and recover PDP for Nigeria”.
