Presidential Tribunal Judgment: Atiku, Obi To Know Fate September 6

The presidential election tribunal has fixed September 6 to deliver judgment on the petitions challenging the election of Bola Tinubu.

Umar Bangari, registrar of the court of appeal, confirmed the date on Monday.

Tinubu secured 8,794,726 votes to defeat Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who got 6,984,520, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) who polled 6,101,533 votes.

Not satisfied with the outcome, five political parties including the PDP, LP, Action Peoples Party (APP), Allied Peoples Movement (APM) and the Action Alliance (AA) lodged separate petitions before the tribunal seeking to annul Tinubu’s victory.

Shortly after the commencement of the pre-hearing session in May, the APP and AA withdrew their petitions.

Among several issues, the petitioners contended that Tinubu and Kashim Shettima, the vice-president, were not eligible to contest the presidential poll.

They claimed that the president was indicted for drug trafficking in the United States, that his academic certificates submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were forged, and that Tinubu is a citizen of Guinea.
