The Presidential elections petitions Tribunal has reserved judgement on the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic party, challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the 2019 presidential election.
Sitting on Wednesday, the five-man panel led by Mohammed Garba announced that judgement on the matter will be announced on a later date which will be communicated to involved parties.
Garba made the announcement after the petitioners and respondents – Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) – adopted their final written addresses.
PDP and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate, have asked the tribunal to declare them winners of the election which held on February 23 or nullify the poll.
Citing a server of the electoral commission, Atiku claimed that he defeated Buhari at the polls by over a million votes.
