Wednesday October 2 2019 has been scheduled by the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal for judgement in a petition filed by the PDP and its candidate, Abba Yusuf, challenging the declaration of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje as winner of the March 9 governorship election by INEC.

The date was announced in a text message sent to the parties involved by the secretary of the tribunal.

The chairman of the tribunal, Halima Shamaki, said the panel was conscious of the deadline of 180 days provided by the Electoral Act, hence the resolve to tidy her work and deliver judgement within the timeframe.

In their arguments during the final presentation, all the respondents’ counsels: Ofiong Ofiong SAN, Alex Ezinyon and Ahmed Raji SAN had unanimously requested the tribunal to dismiss the case as the counsel to the petitioners did not prove their claims.
