The Presidential Election Tribunal in Abuja will deliver judgement on petitions challenging the election of President Bola Tinubu on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.
The Court of Appeal Registrar, Umar Bangari confirmed this to journalists on Monday, saying the proceedings would be open to live broadcast by interested television stations.
He said that everything has been put in place to ensure a hitch-free delivery of the judgment in the three petitions before the tribunal.
The Labour Party, the People’s Democratic Party and the Allied Peoples Movement as well as their presidential candidates, had petitioned the tribunal seeking to nullify the election of President Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 presidential election.
Judgement is also expected to be delivered by election tribunals in 25 states for governorship, National Assembly, and state assembly election petitions.
The results of the polls announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission are being contested in no fewer than 25 states out of the 28 states where elections were conducted.
