Supreme Court Rejects Atiku’s Bid to Introduce New Evidence in Case Against Tinubu 

In its decision, the highest court stated that the appeal brought forth by the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, was without valid grounds or substance.

“On the whole, having resolved all the issues against the appellant, it is my view that there is no merit in the appeal and it is hereby dismissed,” Justice Inyang Okoro said.

“The judgment of the court below delivered on September 6th 2023 affirming the election of the second respondent as the duly elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is hereby affirmed.”

Atiku had appealed to the court, seeking to reverse the verdict of the presidential election petition tribunal, which had previously upheld Tinubu’s presidential win.
