The Supreme Court, on Thursday, affirmed President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as the valid winner of the presidential election that held in the country on February 25.
The tribunal’s ruling regarding the appeals of Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar has been upheld by the Supreme Court.
The highest court upheld the decision of the presidential petition tribunal and dismissed Atiku Abubakar’s appeal, ruling that additional panel members concurred with the lead ruling issued by John Okoro.
Uwani Aji, Mohammed Garba, Ibrahim Saulawa, Adamu Jauro, Abubakar Tijjani, and Emmanuel Agim are the other justices on the court.
“The application by Atiku is frivolous and vexatious and deserves to be dismissed,” Salawa Ibrahim stated. “I find no merit in the appeal and dismiss it, and I uphold the lower court’s decision.”
“I agree with the reasoning if the decision the new evidence is not authentic stated by the authority before it was presented,” Agim stated. It was neither sealed nor signed. It cannot be utilized in Nigeria unless it is authenticated.
I agree to why. It was obvious to all including those that brought it. The FCT violates the Fundamental principle of the interpretation of the Constitution and it must be interpreted in a way that provides equality. The parties should bear their cost.
The court further said the issues raised by Obi had been dealt with in the Atiku’s appeal.
The court also said the issue of double nomination ought not to have been brought before the court.
The other justices on the panel agreed with the lead judgment
