The Supreme Court of Nigeria has fixed Thursday for judgment in the appeals by the presidential candidates of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
Both candidates are challenging the result of the February 25 election which produced Bola Tinubu of All Progressives Congress (APC) as the President.
The Director of Information of the Supreme Court, Dr Festus Akande, confirmed the date on Wednesday.
Both the PDP and LP had on Monday argued their cases before the apex court while the appeal of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) and its presidential candidate, Chichi Ojei, was dismissed after they withdrew it.
The Presidential Election Petitions Court had on September 6 dismissed the petitions of both parties for lack of evidence, but Obi and Atiku filed appeals.
