“Supreme Court Set to Decide Presidential Election Dispute – APC, PDP, and LP Express Confidence

The political landscape in Nigeria is abuzz as the Supreme Court prepares to deliver a crucial judgment today on the hotly contested presidential election held on February 25.

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), along with the two leading opposition parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP), are brimming with confidence that the verdict will be in their favor.

The heart of the dispute lies in the declaration of President Bola Tinubu, a stalwart of the APC, as the winner of the election. The Presidential Election Petitions Court had earlier dismissed the petitions brought by the PDP and LP, which challenged Tinubu’s victory.

Dissatisfied with the outcome, both major opposition parties and their candidates, Atiku Abubakar (PDP) and Peter Obi (LP), have now turned to the Supreme Court in a bid to overturn the earlier decision.

On Monday, the apex court heard their cases, and just yesterday, it was announced that the judgment would be pronounced today. Dr. Festus Akande, the Supreme Court’s Director of Information, confirmed this development.

The anticipation is palpable, with each of the three parties expressing unwavering optimism that the judgment will favor their cause. The APC Director of Publicity, Bala Ibrahim, firmly believes that the court will uphold Tinubu’s victory, given the compelling evidence presented during the proceedings.

He stated, “Certainly, we are still sure of victory. In fact, our optimism is even stronger now because all the facts presented that day were in our favor.”

However, Kehinde Edun, the National Legal Adviser of LP, sees a different outcome, asserting that their candidate, Peter Obi, will emerge victorious. Edun emphasized that they have presented their case comprehensively and introduced fresh evidence at the Court of Appeal, refuting the notion that the law cannot accommodate such new evidence.

The PDP Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Ibrahim Abdullahi, appealed to the Supreme Court to rise above any narrow considerations in its judgment. He emphasized the importance of a just verdict in preserving the future of the nation for generations to come, urging the court to act with the welfare of the country and its citizens in mind.

As the nation awaits this significant judgment, the fate of the presidential election and its implications for Nigeria’s political landscape hang in the balance
