PEPC Dismiss Alleged Date For Ruling On Obi, Atiku’s Petition To Overturn Tinubu Victory

The Presidential Election Petitions Court (PEPC) in Abuja has dismissed an alleged date that was circulated on social media as the set date for ruling on the corresponding petitions contesting President Bola Tinubu’s election.
This comes after a tweet from Serah Ibrahim, a verified X (Twitter) account, on Monday tweeted that the PEPC “has set September 16 2023 as the judgment date for the Peter Obi and Labour party’s case against Bola Tinubu, INEC, Shettima, and APC.”
At the time of writing this report, the tweet has received over 2,083 retweets.
Barrister Josephine J. Ekperobe, the Secretary of the PEPC panel, responded to the development by dismissing the viral post.
The official replied to the Whistler’s inquiry as “No date yet.”
It would be recalled that after adopting the final written addresses of the parties involved in the suit, the five-man tribunal headed by Justice Haruna Simon Tsamani reserved judgment and said a date to deliver the verdict would be communicated to concerned parties and their lawyers.
Multiple sources claimed on Monday that the tribunal has now allegedly picked September 16 as the judgment date.
The reported date is the final day available for the tribunal to deliver its judgment on the three petitions instituted by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Labour Party (LP) and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) together with their presidential candidates, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Mr. Peter Obi, and Princess Chichi Ojei respectively.
Tinubu, the APC, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are the defendants in the proceedings.
The tribunal is yet to make an official statement on the date to deliver its ruling.
