The Supreme Court is poised to bring an end to the prolonged legal dispute surrounding the presidential election held on February 25th.

Initially, five petitions were filed contesting the victory of President Bola Tinubu from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in a field of 17 presidential candidates. However, only three of these petitions advanced to the Supreme Court.

Two of the petitions were withdrawn before they could be heard by the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) held in the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal. Of the three petitions presented at the Supreme Court, only two have reached the final stage of litigation.

In a recent development, a seven-member panel of the Supreme Court dismissed the case brought by the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) aimed at overturning President Tinubu's election victory. The party decided to withdraw its appeal, a move the panel deemed as academic and legally irrelevant.

This leaves the remaining appeals, filed by former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, in contention.

The apex court had reserved judgment on these appeals, with all parties having presented their final arguments for consideration after the proceedings on the past Monday.
