Atiku Abubakar has filed an appeal on his case against Tinubu with the Supreme Court..

    Abubakar Atiku, former vice president of Nigeria, has taken the significant step of filing an appeal with the Supreme Court in an effort to challenge the judgment of the Presidential Election Petitions Court. This judgment upheld the declaration of President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 presidential polls.


    In the notice of appeal, which comprises 35 grounds, Atiku asserts that the tribunal made a grave error and resulted in a miscarriage of justice in its findings and conclusions concerning his petition. His initial petition had challenged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s declaration of Tinubu as the President of Nigeria.

    The appeal lodged with the apex court seeks the complete nullification of the findings and conclusions of the Tribunal. Atiku contends that these findings did not accurately reflect the essence of his petition, and thus, they must be set aside.

    At the heart of Atiku’s appeal is the assertion that the tribunal committed a legal error by failing to invalidate the presidential election conducted on February 25, 2023. This alleged failure is based on Atiku’s claim that INEC conducted the election in a manner that grossly misrepresented the principles outlined in the Electoral Act of 2022. Atiku further asserts that this misrepresentation was contrary to the doctrine of legitimate expectation, which is a fundamental legal principle.

    By lodging this appeal with the Supreme Court, Atiku seeks to challenge the validity of the presidential election results and uphold the principles of fair and transparent electoral processes as outlined in the law. The outcome of this appeal will undoubtedly have significant implications for the political landscape of Nigeria and the democratic process as a whole.
