A Federal High Court in Abuja will on Monday (today) deliver judgment on a request seeking to stop the conduct of the forthcoming presidential election scheduled for February 25.
The court will also decide whether to sack the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), over alleged illegalities in the 2019 presidential election.
The judgment billed to be delivered by Justice Inyang Ekwo is based on a suit filed by the presidential candidate of the Hope Democratic Party in the 2019 election, Chief Ambrose Owuru.
Owuru had instituted legal action against Buhari and the Independent National Electoral Commission, asking the court to declare him the winner of the election
A notice for the judgment delivery sighted on Friday by journalists at the Federal Ministry of Justice in Abuja indicated that the verdict would be delivered by 9am by Justice Ekwo.
The notice was served on the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN).
The PUNCH reported that the Rivers State-born presidential candidate had asked the court to declare him the winner of the 2019 presidential election.
