2019 POLLS: ATIKU DENIED AGAIN, FINALLY.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday dismissed the petition by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari at the February 23 poll.
The seven-man panel of the apex court led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Tanko Mohammed said the panel agreed that there is no merit in the appeal and thereby dismissed the appeal.
The CJN said the reasons for the dismissal will be made known later.
Atiku and his party were challenging the September 11 judgment of the Justice Mohammed Garba-led Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal which affirmed President Buhari’s victory at the polls.
