JUST IN: PEPT Reserves Judgment On PDP/Atiku’s Petition
The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja has reserved judgment on the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
The five-man panel led by Justice Mohammed Garba announced this after listening to the final arguments of the parties to the case.
The PDP and Atiku are challenging President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory at the February 23, 2019, presidential election.
In a ruling on Wednesday, Justice Garba said the date for judgment would be communicated to the parties through their lawyers.
“Judgment in this petition is hereby reserved and will be delivered on the date to be sent to counsel for the parties,” Justice Garba said.
