The Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) has said it will deliver judgment on the petition by Peter Obi and the Labour Party (LP) on a date to be announced later.
Justice Haruna Tsammani, the Presiding Justice of the court, made the announcement a moment ago after lawyers to petitioners and the respondents adopted their final written addresses and made their last submissions, reports The Nation.
Lawyer to the petitioners, Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), argued his clients proved their case and prayed the court to grant the reliefs sought.
Lawyers to the respondents – Abubakar Mahmoud (SAN) for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Wole Olanipekun (SAN) for President Bola Tinubu and Vice President, Kashim Shettma, and Lateef Fagbemi (SAN) for the All Progressives Congress (APC) – prayed the court to dismiss the petition for lacking in merit.
Mahmoud, Olanipekun and Fagbemi argued that the petitioners failed to prove their case with relevant evidence.
