The presidential election petition tribunal has fixed Wednesday 11th of September to deliver judgement on the petition filed by the candidate of the PDP Alhaji Atiku Abubakar against the election of President Muhammadu Buhari held on the 23rd of February 2019.
The Court of Appeal Public Relations Officer, Mrs Sadiat Kachalla, announced this in a notice of judgment in Abuja.
“Presidential election petition tribunal: Please be informed. Notice has been given for judgement to be delivered tomorrow, September 11,” Kachalla said on Tuesday.
Atiku had on March 18, 2019, filed a petition at the tribunal claiming that he and his party defeated Buhari, who was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
During the hearing of the petition, Atiku called 62 witnesses out of the 400 he promised to present, while Buhari called 6.
However, both INEC and APC did not call any witness.
The tribunal, headed by Justice Mohammed Garba, which began its inaugural sitting on May 7, reserved the petition for judgment on August 21 after hearing the arguments of the parties.
Justice Garba had stated that the judgment date would be communicated to parties.
