The Peoples Democratic Party presidential flag bearer in the February 25 general election, Atiku Abubakar is to hold a world press conference today, September 7.
This is coming after the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal threw out his case and upheld the victory of President Bola Tinubu.
Atiku and his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi, rejected Wednesday’s judgment of the tribunal affirming the election of Tinubu, according to the Punch.
Atiku’s Lead Counsel, Chris Uche, SAN, said he had received instructions from his client to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.
“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,” he said.
In a related development, the Legal Adviser to the Labour Party, Kehinde Edun, vowed to challenge the judgment at the Supreme Court.
