The proceedings witnesses a lot of dramas as the PDP party agents who also doubled as witnesses kept repeating the same grammar during the cross examination by the APC lawyers, the grammar like “Had been doctored” had been altered” had been manipulated” “There is over voting” was the only song they both continue repeating all the time even when the question put to them has nothing to do with such grammar they continually repeating it as if it was programmed on their head.
The hearing continue tomorrow.
