Atiku, PDP Reject PEPT Judgement, Head To Supreme Court.
Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate, has refused to accept the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, which affirmed Bola Tinubu’s election as President.
The former Vice President has made a commitment to contest the decision in the Supreme Court.
On September 6, 2023, the PEPT ruled that the petitions against Tinubu by Atiku and Peter Obi lacked merit and declared Tinubu the authentic winner of the February 25 presidential election.
The tribunal’s Chairman, Justice Haruna Tsammani, with the assistance of Justices Stephen Adah, Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf, Moses Ugo, and Abba Mohammed, delivered the judgement.
Justice Tsammani dismissed Atiku’s petition, affirming Bola Ahmed Tinubu as Nigeria’s elected President. Atiku rejected the verdict and plans to challenge it in the Supreme Court.
Chris Uche, SAN, Atiku’s lead counsel, has affirmed the situation, stating that his client is fully prepared to pursue legal redress at the Supreme Court.
Uche stated that “The judgement has been delivered, but we have not received justice. Luckily, the law has given us leverage to go on appeal to the Supreme Court. We have instructions from our clients to go to the Supreme Court. The struggle continues.”
The Labour Party has disagreed with the tribunal’s judgement on petitions against the President and his party, stating that it did not serve justice.
The party plans to consult with its lawyers and decide its next steps after obtaining the Certified True Copy of the judgements, as they believe the judgement does not align with the law and the will of the people.
