In a significant development on the legal front of Nigeria’s political landscape, the Supreme Court has set Thursday as the date for delivering its verdict on the appeals presented by the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
The two prominent political figures are seeking the apex court’s intervention to overturn the decision rendered by the presidential election tribunal, which upheld the election victory of President Bola Tinubu.
In an official statement, Dr. Festus Akande, the Director of Information for the Supreme Court, confirmed the impending judgment during a telephone conversation held on Wednesday. He informed our correspondent that the verdict on these appeals is slated for Thursday.
Dr. Akande stated, “Tomorrow, Thursday, has been designated as the day for the issuance of the ruling on the appeals brought forth by Atiku and Peter Obi.”
This announcement from the Supreme Court marks a crucial moment in the ongoing legal battle over the nation’s highest office, as all parties eagerly await the court’s decision.
