Supreme Court Fixes Thursday To Deliver Judgment On Atiku, Obi’s Appeals Against Tinubu

The Supreme Court has scheduled Thursday as the day for delivering its judgment on the appeals made by the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party, Peter Obi. Both candidates are seeking the apex court’s intervention to overturn the judgment rendered by the presidential election tribunal, which validated the election victory of President Bola Tinubu.

These appeals to the Supreme Court represent a significant legal battle, as they involve key political figures and could potentially impact the outcome of a presidential election. Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi are putting forth their arguments in a bid to challenge the legitimacy of President Tinubu’s election, which was upheld by the election tribunal.

In response to inquiries about the scheduled judgment, the Supreme Court’s Director of Information, Dr. Festus Akande, confirmed the date. He communicated this information during a telephone conversation on the day preceding the judgment, providing clarity regarding the court’s plans to reach a verdict on the appeals filed by the presidential candidates.

He said, “Tomorrow, Thursday, has been fixed for the judgment on the appeals brought by Atiku and Peter Obi.”

The upcoming Supreme Court judgment will hold considerable significance not only for the involved parties but also for the nation as a whole. It represents a crucial moment in Nigeria’s political landscape, and the decision reached by the apex court will have far-reaching implications for the country’s leadership.
