Supreme Court fixes October 26 for judgement in Obi, Atiku, Tinubu case

The Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the victory of President Bola Tinubu in the February 25 presidential election.

In its ruling, the Supreme Court determined that Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) presidential candidate, lacked merit in his appeal.

“On the whole, having resolved all the issues against the appellant, it is my view that there is no merit in the appeal, and it is hereby dismissed,” Justice Inyang Okoro said.

“The judgement of the court below delivered on September 6, 2023, affirming the election of the second respondent as the duly elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria is hereby affirmed.”

Atiku had approached the Supreme Court to overturn the judgement of the presidential election petition tribunal, which affirmed Tinubu’s election as president.
