Justice Zainab Bulkachawa, the President of Appeal Court, has stepped aside for the presiding Judge of the Lagos Division of the Court of Appeal at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

Justice Garba has now taken charge of the presidential tribunal following the withdrawal of Zainab Bulkachuwa from the panel on May 22.

Garba for the first time on Monday appeared among the five-man panel to indicate the change of hand of the case.

Bulkachuwa deliberately distanced herself from the panel, following allegation of bias levelled against her by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its candidate in the February 23 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.

The petitioners are challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and his party, All Progressives Congress, APC, in the election.
