Supreme Court reserves judgement on Atiku’s appeal against Tinubu

BREAKING: Tinubu Indebted To Me – Atiku

The Supreme Court has postponed its decision on the case brought forward by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to challenge the victory of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election.

Justice John Inyang Okoro, leading a panel of seven justices, announced the postponement after hearing arguments from both parties.

The court will inform the parties involved once a date for the final judgment is set.

Atiku Abubakar continues to argue that Tinubu should be disqualified from the election on constitutional grounds, and his legal team has urged the court to nullify Tinubu’s victory.

He predicated his request for Tinubu’s disqualification on alleged certificate forgery and lying on oath.

In the absence of outright disqualification, Atiku pleaded with the Justice John Inyang Okoro-led panel to order a rerun between him and Tinubu.

However, Tinubu through his lead counsel, Wole Olanipekun SAN, asked the court to dismiss Atiku’s claims of certificate forgery and lying on oath.

The senior lawyer insisted that Atiku’s allegations are unsubstantiated and cannot enjoy any probate value until proven beyond reasonable doubt as required by law.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, represented by Abubakar Mahmoud SAN, also canvassed that Atiku’s petition be thrown out for want of merit.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, led by Chief Akin Olujinmi SAN, adopted the position of Olanipekun in calling for dismissal of the petition.
