The Supreme Court has also reserved judgment in the appeal filed by the candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, against the electoral victory of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election.
The suit is seeking to set aside the judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Court, (PEPC) and the Appeals Court.
Obi and the LP had taken his appeal to the apex court after the PEPC dismissed his petitions for lacking in merit and affirmed the election of Tinubu on September 6.
