Some supposed supporters of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Thursday morning were seen at the front of the Supreme Court as the apex court of Nigeria begins the process of delivering a final judgement on the political battle between the incumbent President, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former Anambra State governor, Peter Obi.
The supporters were seen with placards, banners and shirts with different inscriptions. One of the banners, as seen in photos shared by Daily Trust, says, “2023 Na JAGABAN/SHETTIMA TURN, WAIT FOR YOUR TURN.”
Some of the banners held by the protesters at the Supreme Court entrance had inscriptions claiming that President Tinubu loves the Niger Delta people, while another said Presidency is not an MMM scheme.

Goldennewsng reports that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) are challenging the declaration of President Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the February 25 presidential election.
In September, the Presidential Election Petitions Court dismissed their petitions against Tinubu.
Dissatisfied with the ruling, the two major opposition parties and their candidates, Atiku (PDP) and Obi (LP), approached the Supreme Court seeking to overturn Tinubu’s victory.
The apex court, on Monday, heard the cases and on Wednesday announced that judgment would be delivered on Thursday (today).
