Court reserves judgement in Obi’s case challenging Tinubu’s victory
After the final showdown in the legal battle between Peter Obi and President Bola Tinubu over the 25 February presidential election, the Presidential Election Petition Court in Abuja on Tuesday reserved its judgement.
A five-member panel of the court headed by Haruna Tsammani said a date for judgement would be communicated to parties in the suit.
The verdict is expected to be delivered before the end of September.
Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr Obi, urged the court in his petition he filed at the court in May to nullify President Tinubu’s victory at the 25 February presidential election.
Mr Obi alleged, among other issues, that Nigeria’s electoral commission, INEC, failed to “substantially comply with the provisions of the Constitution and the Electoral Act” in its conduct of the polls.
