Four weeks after it adjourned for judgement, the Presidential Election Tribunal has finally fixed a date to make public its verdict.
A usually reliable source disclosed yesterday (Sunday), that the five-member tribunal which sat at the Court of Appeal complex in Abuja from May 8 to August 1, has agreed on September 16 as the judgment date.
Incidentally, that date is the deadline for the tribunal to deliver its judgment.
The Justice Haruna Simon Tsamani-led tribunal is expected to deliver judgement on the three petitions lodged 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 the Delta-born Princess Chichi Ojei respectively, against the declaration by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the winner of the February 25, 2023 presidential election in the country.
The defendants in the cases are Tinubu, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Independent national Electoral Commission (INEC).
