THE WHISTLER spoke to the Secretary of the PEPC panel, Barrister Josephine J. Ekperobe, for confirmation or denial of the viral post.
“No date yet” the official replied to THE WHISTLER‘s inquiry.
THE WHISTLER reports that the PEPC’s five-man panel led by Justice Haruna Tsammani was inaugurated to preside over petitions challenging the outcome of the presidential election declared in favour of President Tinubu by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
All the petitioners, Peter Obi, Atiku Abubakar and the Allied Peoples Movement APM; alongside the defendants (INEC, Tinubu, Kashim Shettima and others) have closed their cases after presenting witnesses and tendering evidence to support their respective submissions.
The PEPC had adjourned, saying it will communicate the date for judgment to “parties”.
THE WHISTLER further reports that judgment on the petitions will come on or before September 17, in line with the 6 months timeline constitutionally stipulated by law for the panel to conclude the case.
