2023 Presidential Poll: Election Petition Tribunal Reportedly Picks Date To Deliver Judgement


The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) has allegedly fixed Saturday, September 16 as the date to deliver its final ruling on the outcome of the 2023 presidential election.

The tribunal is expected to deliver its ruling in the suit challenging the electoral victory of President Bola Tinubu who was the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 elections.

It would be recalled that after adopting the final written addresses of the parties involved in the suit, the five-man tribunal headed by Justice Haruna Simon Tsamani reserved judgment and said a date to deliver the verdict would be communicated to concerned parties and their lawyers.

Multiple sources claimed on Monday that the tribunal has now reportedly picked September 16 as the judgment date.

The reported date is the final day available for the tribunal to deliver its judgment on the three petitions instituted by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Labour Party (LP) and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) together with their presidential candidates, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Mr. Peter Obi, and Princess Chichi Ojei respectively.

The defendants in the cases are Tinubu, the APC, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Naija News however reports the tribunal is yet to make an official statement on the date to deliver its ruling.
