Supreme Court To Deliver Final Judgement On Atiku, Obi’s Petitions Today

Peter Obi, Atiku Abubakar
The Supreme Court has fixed Thursday, October 26, to issue final judgments in petitions filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar and the Labour Party (LP) candidate Peter Obi.
The presidential candidates are challenging the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was declared the winner of the highly contested election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) also upheld his victory.
Over the alleged forgery of President Tinubu’s Chicago State University certificate, Atiku is requesting that Tinubu be removed from office.
Dr. Awemeri Festus Akande, the Supreme Court’s Director of Press and Information, on Wednesday confirmed the date for the ruling on the petitions.
According to him, adequate security measures have been put in place to guard against security lapses both inside and outside the court premises.
Final arguments from lawyers for the petitioning parties were heard by a seven-member panel of Justices of the Court on Monday, presided over by Justice John Inyang Okoro.
Justices Uwani Abba-Aji, Mohammed Lawal Garba, Adamu Jauro, Ibrahim Saulawa, Tijani Abubakar, and Emmanuel Agim are the other members of the panel.
The Justices thereafter reserved their judgments.
