ATIKU 1 e1554933702779

Abubakar Atiku, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, has filed an appeal with the Supreme Court, seeking to overturn the decision of the Presidential Election Petitions Court, which affirmed President Bola Tinubu’s declaration as the winner of the 2023 elections.

In a notice of appeal based on 35 grounds, Atiku claimed that the tribunal made a grave error and miscarriage of justice in its findings and conclusion in its suit contesting Tinubu’s election as President.

The notice of appeal also asks the Supreme Court to overturn the Tribunal’s findings and conclusions, claiming that they do not accurately reflect the facts of his case.

Atiku contended that the tribunal erred in law when it refused to nullify the presidential election held on February 25, 2023, on the grounds of non-compliance with the Electoral Act 2022, when evidence before the Tribunal showed that INEC conducted the election on the basis of grave and gross misrepresentation, in violation of the principles of the Electoral Act 2022, based on the doctrine of legitimate expectation.
