Election Tribunal to deliver judgment on Atiku’s petition on Wednesday
The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja has fixed Wednesday 11th September, 2019 for the delivery of its judgment in the petition filed by candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, in the last presidential election, challenging the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The petitioner asked the five-man tribunal led by Justice Mohammed Garba to nullify President Buhari’s victory at the poll and either declare him the winner or order the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct a rerun.
A senior member of the petitioners’ legal team, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), has confirmed that the hearing notice for the judgment had been served on lawyers representing the parties to the case on Tuesday.
“I can confirm to you that the judgment will be delivered 9am tomorrow (Wednesday),” Ozekhome said.
