The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal is set to deliver judgment on Atiku's petition against Buhari.
Buhari and Atiku
The Punch reports that the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja will on Wednesday deliver judgment in the case instituted by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, challenging the outcome of the February 23, 2019 election.
The petitioners asked the five-man tribunal led by Justice Mohammed Garba to nullify President Buhari’s victory at the poll and either declare them the winner or order the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct a rerun.
A senior member of the petitioners’ legal team, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), confirmed to our correspondent that the hearing notice for the judgment had been served on lawyers representing the parties to the case on Tuesday.
“I can confirm to you that the judgment will be delivered 9am tomorrow (Wednesday),” Ozekhome said.
