Tribunal judgement: Atiku Files appeal at Supreme Court seeking nullification of Tinubu’s presidential win

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar Atiku, has filed an appeal at the Supreme Court, seeking nullification of the judgment of the Presidential Election Petitions Court, which upheld the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 election.


In the notice of appeal, Atiku insisted that the tribunal committed a miscarriage of justice in its findings and conclusion in its petition challenging the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s declaration of Tinubu as President.


The notice of appeal is also praying the apex court to set aside the whole findings and conclusions of the Tribunal on the grounds that they did not represent the true picture of the grounds of his petition.

Atiku claimed that the tribunal erred in law when it failed to nullify the presidential election held on February 25, 2023, on the grounds of non-compliance with the Electoral Act 2022, when by the evidence before the Tribunal, ‘’INEC conducted the election based on grave and gross misrepresentation, contrary to the Electoral Act 2022.”

On the 6th of September, Nigeria’s presidential election tribunal ruled that Nigeria’s main opposition parties failed to prove claims of electoral malpractice against the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) in February’s disputed elections.
