The Presidential Election Tribunal has fixed date to deliver its judgement on the petition challenging the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Atiku Abubakar, the president candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is challenging the outcome of the February 23 exercise wherein Mr Buhari was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Mr Abubakar, popularly known as Atiku, is also seeking to be declared the winner of the election.

After listening to the parties in the suit which also seeks the disqualification of the president as having not been qualified to run for the office on academic grounds, the tribunal has fixed Wednesday to deliver judgement.

“The judgment of the petition of @atiku and @OfficialPDPNig against @inecnigeria, @MBuhari and @OfficialAPCNg in the February 23, 2019 election comes up tomorrow, Wednesday, 11 September,” Paul Ibe, media aide to the former vice president tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
