Today is Tinubu, Atiku, and Obi’s judgement day.



According to the Nigeria Police Force, all of its personnel are “fully prepared” to uphold peace and order throughout the nation.

Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Peter Obi of the Labour Party—the three leading contenders for president in the race for president on February 25—will find out their fate today.

On the petitions contesting Tinubu’s presidential legitimacy, the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal is scheduled to provide a decision.

How it began

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, that Tinubu, the APC candidate, had won the fiercely contested election on February 25 with a total of 8,794,726 votes.

With 6,984,520 votes, Atiku, the PDP candidate, came in second place, and Obi, the Labour Party candidate, came in third with 6,101,533.

In the election, Obi won 11 states including the Federal Capital Territory, while Tinubu and Atiku each won 12 states.

But Atiku and Obi, who stood together for the PDP’s presidential and vice presidential candidatures in the 2019 general elections, contested Tinubu’s win before the tribunal, arguing that they were the true election winners.

The court has heard from all parties and is scheduled to make an announcement regarding its verdict on Wednesday, September 6, 2023.

Justices Haruna Tsammani, Stephen Adah, Misturat Bolaji-Yusuf, Boloukuoromo Moses Ugo, and Abba-Bello Mohammed will determine the fate of the three candidates.

The events will air on television.

The Court of Appeal’s registrar, Umar Bangari, recently declared that interested television stations will be able to broadcast the decision live prior to the proceedings.

Only those with the proper credentials, such as solicitors and political party members, will be allowed entry to the courtroom, according to Bangari.

He went on to say that those in the public who are interested in seeing the proceedings are encouraged to watch it on television.

Supervision of Abuja

Prior to the ruling, security personnel have been stationed around the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal and other hotspots in the Federal Capital Territory.

According to the Nigeria Police Force, all of its personnel are “fully prepared” to uphold peace and order throughout the nation.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Muyiwa Adejobi, cautioned politicians and miscreants against spreading false information and making rash statements that could incite violence in a statement released on Tuesday, September 5, 2023.

The Police want to reaffirm their commitment to protecting people and property before, during, and after the judgement, according to Adejobi.
