The much anticipated verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) is set to be announced on Wednesday, September 6th.
The Court of Appeal Registrar, Umar Bangari, has confirmed that interested television stations will have the opportunity to broadcast the proceedings live.
The legal battle involves the Labour Party (LP), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), along with their respective presidential candidates, who have petitioned the tribunal in an attempt to overturn the election results and nullify President Bola Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 presidential election.
Additionally, election tribunals in 25 states are expected to deliver judgments on governorship, National Assembly, and state assembly election petitions. These cases arise from contested results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in a significant number of states out of the 28 where elections were conducted.
