The Supreme Court will on Wednesday hear the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the last presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
They are praying for a reversal of the September 11 decision of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) upholding President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory. The Supreme Court is expected to hear a cross-appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) challenging a portion of the verdict.
It was learnt that counsel to both parties have been notified of the hearing date. The PEPC resolved the five issues raised for determination in favour of the respondents – the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Buhari and the APC.
