The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) will on Wednesday morning deliver its judgement on the petition of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), against the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Presidential election petition tribunal: Please be informed. Notice has been given for judgement to be delivered tomorrow, September 11,” Sa’adatu Kachalla, spokesperson for the Court of Appeal, said on Tuesday.
Former Vice President Atiku had vehemently rejected the outcome of the February 23, 2019 presidential election.
INEC had declared Buhari the winner of the election with 15,191,847 votes, and Atiku as the first runner-up with 11,262,978 votes
Consequently, Atiku and his party approached the tribunal led by Justice Mohammed Garba seeking the nullification of Buhari’s victory or order the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a rerun election in some polling units across the country where results were cancelled.
