In a statement by the court of appeal and cited by Legit.ng, the media houses have been permitted to broadcast or live stream the proceedings of the count.
On Wednesday, March 1, the INEC declared Tinubu as the February 25 presidential election winner, adding that the now-president had met the law requirement and had been returned as the poll winner.
How Atiku Obi fight Tinubu at the tribunal
The opposition camps, including Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party, have raised different objections to the election outcome.
On social media, the supporters of Atiku and Obi are optimistic that the court would unseat President Tinubu, who is currently out of the country for the G-20 summit in New Delhi, India.
However, the presidency on Monday evening, September 4, dismissed the insinuation that Tinubu would be removed, adding that the president is confident of security victory at the tribunal because he truly won the election.
