Supreme Court upholds President Tinubu’s victory

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.

“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 Okoro said in dismissing Atiku’s appeal

“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.”
