Presidential Election Tribunal rules on challenge to Tinubu’s presidency
By John Eche
Nigeria’s Presidential Election Tribunal will rule this Wednesday on a challenge to the declared outcome of the 2023 polls that saw to the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress as president, The Difference reports.
The challenge which is coming from three political parties has the duo of Atiku Abubakar f the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and Peter Obi of the Labour Party as frontline contenders in the dispute.
The tribunal has promised to arrange live broadcast of the ruling though it had strangely rejected live coverage of the proceedings earlier on.
Tinubu is out of the country on a pre-G20 invitation trip to India and the police have deployed men to the court and critical centres ahead of the ruling.
There is still a window to challenge the verdict of the tribunal at the apex court but that has to be concluded by November 5.
Many Nigerians have clamoured for an amendment of the Electoral laws to ensure that no one gets into office while disputes related to his emergence remain in the mill.
