Supreme Court fixes  tomorrow, Thursday for judgement on Atiku, Obi’s appeals





The Supreme Court has fixed tomorrow to deliver the judgement it reserved on the two appeals that are seeking to nullify the election of President Bola Tinubu.

It was gathered that the apex court communicated the judgement date to all the parties on Wednesday, through a notice that was signed by one of its Registrars.

The development is coming barely 72 hours after a seven-member panel of the court heard the appeals and reserved its verdict, after parties in the matter adopted their final briefs of argument.

The appeals were brought before the court by the presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and his counterpart in the Labour Party, LP, Mr. Peter Obi.

Atiku and Obi are challenging the declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, that Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, was the valid winner of the presidential election that held on February 25.

They are praying the apex court to set aside the September 6 judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Court, PEPC, which dismissed their allegation that the election was rigged in favour of the ruling party.

Aside from challenging President Tinubu’s eligiblity to participate in the contest, both Atiku, who came second and Obi who came third, maintained that he (Tinubu) did not secure the majority of valid votes that were cast during the election to be declared the winner.
