The Supreme Court is scheduled to deliver judgement in the cases of the Labour Party and its Presidential candidate, Peter Obi; the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Bola Tinubu tomorrow, Thursday.

The PDP Presidential candidate and his LP counterpart have lodged appeals challenging the September 6 ruling of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) that upheld Tinubu’s electoral victory.

The judgement date was confirmed by all parties involved on Wednesday.

At its last sitting on Monday, the apex court reserved judgement filed by Atiku and the PDP against the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Court which affirmed Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 presidential poll.

A seven-member panel of the court, led by Justice Inyang Okoro announced this on Monday after counsels to parties adopted their briefs of argument and made final submissions.

The apex court also took arguments from lawyers to parties on the motion filed by Atiku to supply fresh evidence on forged documents.

Counsel to Atiku Abubakar, Mr Chris Uche, urged the court to grant the motion and allow their appeal, grant the prayers sought, and disqualify Tinubu.

Counsel to the Respondents, Abubakar Mahmoud for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Wole Olanipekun for President Tinubu, and Akin Olujinmi for the All Progressives Congress (APC) urged the court to dismiss both the motion and appeal for lacking in merit.
