President Bola Tinubu has urged the Supreme Court to dismiss Atiku’s appeal on the verdict of the tribunal on the feb 25th presidential election.
Tinubu in his prayer, the Supreme Court should dismiss the appeal due to its abusive nature.
The president cited that the prayers of the appellants lacked ability to prove their claims.
He submitted that the tribunal was correct in arriving at its verdict and affirming his election.
“Neither the appellants have demonstrated any reason why this honourable court should disturb any of the findings of the lower court, which, with all modesty are rooted in law and perfect demonstration of scholarship,” Tinubu said.
“We accordingly urge this honourable court to affirm the decision of the lower court, while dismissing this appeal in its entirety, as same is lacking in merit and bona fide.
“Everything put together or summarized, this appeal is a further demonstration of the abusive nature to which the appellants have subjected court processes. The supreme court is urged to dismiss it.”
Tinubu’s appeal comes after Abubakar and the PDP filed a 35-ground notice of appeal, alleging that the tribunal’s findings were done with “grave errors and gross misrepresentation”, which resulted in a miscarriage of justice.The appellants are praying the Supreme Court to set aside the entire findings and conclusions of the tribunal.
The tribunal had dismissed Atiku and Peter Obi’s petition on the the 6th of September 2023
