The leadership of the ruling All Progressives Congress and the two opposition parties – the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party –have expressed confidence that they will secure victory as the Supreme Court delivers judgment on the February 25 presidential election today.
The PDP and the LP are challenging the declaration of President Bola Tinubu of the APC as the winner of the poll.
The Presidential Election Petitions Court had in September dismissed their petitions against Tinubu.
Displeased, the two major opposition parties and their candidates, Atiku Abubakar (PDP) and Peter Obi (LP), approached the Supreme Court seeking to overturn Tinubu’s victory.
The apex court, on Monday, heard the cases and on Wednesday announced that judgment would be delivered on Thursday (today).
The Supreme Court’s Director of Information, Dr Festus Akande, told The PUNCH on the telephone on Wednesday that, “Tomorrow, Thursday has been fixed for judgment on the appeals brought by Atiku and Peter Obi.”
Reacting to the announcement, each of the three parties expressed optimism that the verdict would go their way.
