Tribunal delivers judgement on Atiku’s petition against Buhari’s victory Wednesday

The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja will on Wednesday deliver judgment in the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, against the outcome of the February 23, 2019 election.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had announced Buhari as the winner of the presidential elections held in February.

The petitioners asked the five-man tribunal led by Justice Mohammed Garba to nullify President Buhari’s victory at the poll and either declare them the winner ‎or order the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a rerun.

A senior member of the petitioners’ legal team, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), confirmed to The Punch 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.
