Supreme Court dismisses Atiku’s appeal, affirms Tinubu’s election |


The Supreme Court on Thursday finally dismissed the appeal filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, against the election of President Bola Tinubu.

The seven-man panel dismissed the appeal for lacking merit after it resolved all seven issues raised for determination in favour of the respondents.

Justice John Okoro, who read the lead judgment, subsequently affirmed the judgment of the presidential election tribunal, which, on September 6, affirmed Tinubu’s election as president.

“On the whole, there is no merit in this appeal, and it is hereby dismissed.

“The judgment of the court below is hereby affirmed,” Okoro held.

Earlier, the apex court had declined to accept fresh evidence from Atiku to prove that Tinubu forged the certificate it submitted to INEC in aid of his qualification for the 2023 presidential election.
