7 Ways the Tribunal Can Rule on Atiku and Obi’s Petitions Against Tinubu



Today, the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal will make a critical decision concerning the futures of three prominent political figures: Bola Tinubu, Atiku Abubakar, and Peter Obi. This decision comes after an intense five-month period of political disagreements and legal battles.

Atiku, representing the PDP, and Obi, from the Labour Party, took the step of bringing Tinubu to court following his declaration as the winner of the 2023 presidential election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

As Nigerians anxiously await the verdict of the tribunal, ThePressNG has compiled a list of seven options before the court today.

  1. Affirm Tinubu’s election on the ground that infractions observed during the polls were not enough to invalidate the outcome.
  2. Disqualify Tinubu, nullify his election and declare Atiku as winner.
  3. Annul Tinubu’s election and declare Obi as winner.
  4. Cancel the elections and order a fresh poll among the 18 candidates.
  5. Cancel the elections and order a re-run between the best two.
  6. Order a re-run between Tinubu and Atiku.
  7. Order a re-run between Atiku and Obi
    Five justices who’ll decide Tinubu’s, Atiku’s, Obi’s fate.
