Atiku vs Buhari: Supreme Court Fixes Date To Hear PDP’s Appeal




The Supreme Court has fixed Wednesday to hear the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar against the judgment of the presidential election petitions tribunal.

Naija News recalls that the Presidential Election Tribunal (PEPT) had dismissed the petition of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku, against the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The PDP and Atiku approached the Supreme Court to appeal the ruling of the Justice Mohammed Garba-led tribunal.

But in a post on its Twitter handle on Sunday, the PDP disclosed that the Apex has fixed October 30th.

“Breaking News! The Supreme Court of Nigeria has scheduled to hear the Appeal of the @OfficialPDPNig and @atiku / @PeterObi, arising from the judgment of the Appeal Court, on Wednesday, October 30, 2019. It’s time to #RescueNigeria.” the tweet read.
