The Nigeria’s Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPT) sitting in Abuja is expected to deliver its verdict on Wednesday, September 6th.
The Court of Appeal Registrar Umar Bangari confirmed this on Monday, saying the proceedings will be open to live broadcast by interested television stations.
The Labour Party (LP), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), as well as their presidential candidates, had petitioned the tribunal seeking to nullify the election of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
Judgement is also expected to be delivered by election tribunals in 25 states for governorship, National Assembly, and state assembly election petitions.
The results of the polls announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are being contested in no fewer than 25 states out of the 28 states where elections were conducted.
The judiciary has warned against intimidation by political actors and their supporters in response to “all eye on judiciary” billboards sited in major parts of the country.
President Bola Tinubu has repeatedly maintained that he won the February 25 presidential election fairly.
