Obi/Atiku vs Tinubu: Supreme Court panel to be instituted next week – moneyamebo

Date:

  • Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi have presented their appeals to the Supreme Court, insisting that the decision of the tribunal could not stand
  • After faulting the tribunal’s refusal to void the 2023 presidential poll over the “doctrine of legitimate expectation”, Atiku filed 35 grounds of appeal
  • On his part, Obi filed 51 grounds of appeal and wants the apex court to set aside the tribunal’s judgement, and grant reliefs sought in his petition

FCT, Abuja – The Supreme Court of Nigeria may inaugurate the panel that will hear the appeal of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, and his counterpart in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar next week.

Messrs Atiku and Obi had earlier in September filed grounds of appeal at the apex court, asking it to nullify the judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).
