A new Nigerian president may be announced today if the elections tribunal rules in favor of opposition presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja will today deliver judgment in the case instituted by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, challenging the outcome of the February 23, 2019, presidential election.
The petition was filed by the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Nigerians are tensed as the entire country awaits the verdict of the tribunal. Since the notice became public, Nigerians have spared no comment in anticipation of the judgment.
Supporters of President Buhari of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and those of Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have been trending #AtikuBusted and #Atiku hashtags, respectively on social media.
President Buhari has been fingered in a certificate forgery row and accusations of malpractices in the last elections. The president and the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) has denied in strong terms.
The tribunal is currently in session, and we are on ground to deliver the news of the verdict as soon as it is announced.
Stay tuned for updates…
