All eyes will be at the Supreme Court today as the final legal battle to unseat President Bola Tinubu will begin following the listing for hearing the election petition appeal filed by former vice-president Atiku Abubakar, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) standard bearer in the February presidential poll.
The Supreme Court Registrar, Zainab Garba, in a notice issued to the parties last Thursday Thursday, disclosed that the hearing proceedings in Atiku’s appeal would take place before the Supreme Court sitting in Abuja today.
Atiku, had approached the presidential election tribunal to nullify the February 25 election in which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Tinubu winner.
The tribunal, however, dismissed the petitions filed by Atiku and Obi for lacking in merit and unanimously upheld Tinubu’s electoral victory.
The tribunal panel led by Justice Haruna Tsammani in their judgement had held that the documentary and oral evidence presented before them could not prove act of irregularities amongst other claims for which Atiku has asked the court to void Tinubu’s victory.
