Breaking: Atiku Lost In The Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, challenging the election of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The court led by Chief Justice of Nigeria Tanko Muhammad dismissed the petition moments after it began hearing the appeal.

The Presidential Election Tribunal last month dismissed Atiku and PDP’s petition, prompting them to appeal to the Supreme Court on 66 grounds.

They, among other things, alleged that the panel of the tribunal erred in law, saying:

“when they relied on ‘overall interest of justice’ to hold that the 2nd Respondent’s Exhibits R1 to R26, P85, and P86 were properly admitted in evidence.”
