The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will address a world press conference today, Thursday, September 7, 2023, to react to the ruling of the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) upholding the victory of President Bola Tinubu.
The tribunal, at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, on Wednesday ruled that the petition filed by Atiku and Obi and their parties had no merit and unanimously upheld Tinubu’s electoral victory in the February 25 presidential election.
The five-member panel dismissed the petitions presented by Atiku and Obi against the declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The judgment was delivered by the Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Haruna Tsammani, assisted by other members of the panel.
Atiku and Obi have rejected the judgment and vowed to challenge it at the Supreme Court.
The PDP’s invite to journalists for the press conference read, “Hello Gentlemen of the Press, good evening.
“This is to invite you to a press briefing to be addressed by the Acting National Chairman, Ambassador Umar Iliya Damagun and PDP Presidential Candidate, H.E. Atiku Abubakar, GCON.”
The conference will start at 2:30 pm at the NEC Hall, located on the ground floor of the PDP National Headquarters in Abuja.
