PEPT: Atiku, PDP to address world press conference after Tribunal loss



The Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, will on Thursday address a world press conference.

This development comes a day after the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) threw out his case and upheld President Bola Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 general election.

Atiku’s Lead Counsel, Chris Uche, SAN, said he had received instructions from his client to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.

He said “The judgment has been delivered but we have not received justice. Luckily, the law has given us leverage to go on appeal to the Supreme Court. We have instructions from our clients to go to the Supreme Court. The struggle continues.”

The PEPT, which began sitting at 9.40 a.m. at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, 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.
