Judgment day: Tinubu supporters storm presidential election tribunal


The supporters of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Wednesday morning, stormed the Court of Appeal premises to show support for the incumbent as Nigerians await the ruling of the election tribunal on the legitimate winner of the February 25 presidential poll.

The young supporters were dressed in black and red attire branded with ex-militant Asari Dokubo’s name.

They were captured holding placards, singing, and dancing.

Inscriptions on the placards said, ‘Niger Deltans stand with the mandate given to BAT by over 200 million Nigerians’, ‘President Tinubu loves Niger Delta’, and ‘Thank you Tinubu for restoring the Niger Delta Ministry’.

On Monday, the tribunal fixed September 6 for ruling on petitions challenging the victory of Mr Tinubu.

Atiku Abubakar (Peoples Democratic Party) and Peter Obi (Labour Party), both candidates in the last presidential poll, are claiming to be the legitimate winner of the election instead of Mr Tinubu.

Mr Abubakar polled 6.9 million votes, and Mr Obi had 6.1 million votes in the election.
