Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, will constitute the Supreme Court panel that will hear the appeal arising from the judgment of the Presidential Election Petitions Court latest on Wednesday.
Recall that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Mr Peter Obi presidential candidates of Peoples Democratic Party PDP and Labour Party respectively rejected the PEPT judgment, vowing to approach the Supreme Court.
They had 14 days from the day the judgment was delivered to file their appeal at the apex court.
That 14-day timeline ends on Wednesday 20th September, 2023.
A sources at the Supreme Court said, “There is no information about the panel or the justices that would make up the panel for now. What we know is that members of the panel may be named this week, latest by Wednesday.”
