The Supreme Court has fixed Thursday, October 26, to deliver final judgements in the two surviving petitions challenging the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as winner of the last presidential election.

They are the petitions filed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, and his counterpart in the Labour Party (LP), Peter Gregory Obi.

The Supreme Court’s Director of the Press and Information, Dr Awemeri Festus Akande, confirmed the development on Wednesday.

He said adequate security arrangements have been put in place to prevent security breaches both within and outside the court premises.

A 7-man panel of Justices of the Court led by Justice John Inyang Okoro had on Monday taken final arguments from lawyers to parties in the petitions, after which the justices reserved their judgements.
