President Muhammadu Buhari will open his defence on Tuesday at 2pm.
His lead lawyer, Wole Olaipekun (SAN) said so after Usman told the court about INEC’s decision not to call witnesses.
The PEPC has altered the scheduled of proceedings in the hearing of the petition, reducing from six to three, the days within which parties are to file their final written addresses.
Presiding Judge, Justice Mohammed Garba said, in view of time constraint, the court has decided to alter its earlier announced schedule.
By the new amendment, the respondents are now allocated three days each to file their final written addresses at the close of evidence, while the petitioners will have three days from the day of service.
The respondents are to have two days to file reply on point of law if necessary.
