The Presidential Election Tribunal in Abuja has fixed a date for the delivery of judgement on the petitions contesting the outcome of the February 25th presidential election.
Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had announced the then All Progressives Congress candidate, Bola Tinubu, as winner of the highly disputed election.
Dissatisfied with the outcome of the poll, two other front-runner candidates at the poll, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party headed to court to challenge the result of the election.
After months of legal fireworks and frenzied anticipation, the tribunal will now deliver judgment on the petitions challenging the election of Tinubu on Wednesday, September 6.
In May, SaharaReporters reported that the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal merged the petitions submitted by the various political parties while giving the pre-hearing report on the petition and presenting the trial schedule.
It also reserved judgment on the petitions filed by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party in order to deliver the judgements on the same day as that of Peter Obi of the Labour Party.
