On Thursday, October 26, the Supreme Court said that it will make a decision on the appeals filed by the presidential candidates of the People Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi.
These appeals challenge the results of the February 25 election, in which Bola Tinubu was elected President.
Dr Festus Akande, the Supreme Court’s Director of Information, confirmed the date on Wednesday.
Both the PDP and the LP pleaded their arguments before the Supreme Court on Monday, while the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) and its presidential candidate, Chichi Ojei, dropped their appeal.
On September 6, the Presidential Election Petitions Court dismissed both parties’ petitions, claiming a lack of proof.
