Supreme Court Upholds Tinubu’s Victory, Says 25 Percent Requirement For Abuja Is None Issue

Must read

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeals by the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

The Court also affirmed the ruling of the Presidential Elections Petitions Tribunal that upheld the victory of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the February 25, 2023, presidential election.

The Supreme Court says the failure by the Independent National Electoral Commission to transmit election results electronically did not affect the outcome of the election and could not warrant the nullification of the result of the presidential election.

Justice John Okoro, made the pronouncement in a lead judgment on the appeal by former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar; and that of the candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, seeking to nullify the February 25, presidential election of President Bola Tinubu.

Mr. Okoro also dismissed the issue of the 25 per cent requirement for Abuja, as a none issue.
