The Supreme Court of Nigeria has expedited its schedule, setting Thursday, October 26, as the day of reckoning for the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party, Peter Obi. The duo is fervently praying that the apex court will overturn the judgment by the presidential election tribunal, which previously affirmed the election of President Bola Tinubu.
A document obtained by MandyNews.com reveals a notice from the Supreme Court of Nigeria, indicating that a judgment will be delivered promptly on Thursday. The document, dated October 25, 2023, bears a signature, presumably that of an official or registrar, and is set to bring an end to a legal battle that has gripped the nation.
Located in the heart of the Law Court District Area in Abuja, the Supreme Court has become the epicenter of Nigeria’s political drama. Dr. Festus Akande, the Supreme Court’s Director of Information, confirmed the news in a telephone call on Wednesday, stating, “Tomorrow, Thursday, has been fixed for the judgment on the appeals brought by Atiku and Peter Obi.”
The nation holds its breath as the final chapter of this political saga unfolds, with the potential to reshape the political landscape of Nigeria. The appeals by Atiku and Obi represent a significant challenge to the legitimacy of President Bola Tinubu’s election, and the verdict is eagerly awaited by millions across the country.
In a poignant reaction, journalist David Hundeyin expressed his anticipation, stating, “I guess at the very least I’ll get to tell my grandchildren that in 2023, because of some journalistic work I did as a private citizen, the Nigerian Supreme Court moved up its verdict so as to protect a criminal with an impending FBI criminal record disclosure.” Hundeyin’s words capture the gravity of the situation and the potential impact of the Supreme Court’s decision.
As the nation awaits the Supreme Court’s verdict, the eyes of the world are on Nigeria, watching as history is made in the Law Court District Area of Abuja. The decision, set to be delivered on October 26, will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the annals of Nigeria’s political history.
