Tinubu, Atiku Obi to know fate on Wednesday

President Bola Tinubu was declared the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday, March 1, stating that he had met the requirements of the law.

However, the opposition parties and candidates, including Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party, are challenging the announcement at the tribunal.

The supporters of Atiku and Obi are full of the belief that the tribunal will sack President Tinubu. But the presidency has dismissed the insinuation, stating that President Tinubu was confidence of victory at the poll, because he truly won the election.
