The court upheld the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
Today, the Supreme Court of Nigeria dismissed Atiku Abubakar’s appeal challenging President Bola Tinubu’s victory in the February 25 presidential election.
The court upheld the judgment of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, confirming President Tinubu’s legitimacy as the elected President of Nigeria.
The Supreme Court, presided by Justice Inyang Okoro, ruled that INEC’s failure to electronically transmit the result of the 2023 presidential election to iRev did not affect the result of the election won by Bola Tinubu.
The Supreme Court has dismissed Atiku Abubakar’s fresh evidence of Bola Tinubu’s alleged Chicago State University forgery because it can’t rule on an application not already determined by the election petition tribunal.
The Supreme Court has just threw out the petition to cancel Bola Tinubu’s presidential election win because he didn’t win 25% of votes in the FCT.
