The Supreme Court has reaffirmed the reelection of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The apex court ruled that President Buhari was validly elected in the 23 February, presidential election.
A seven-man panel of the court, headed by Justice Tanko Ibrahim Mohammed, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, challenging the victory of the president at the presidential election.
The panel in a unanimous judgement said there is no merit in the appeal.
After losing the appeal at Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, Atiku, a former vice president proceeded to the apex court to challenge the September 11 judgment of the Justice Mohammed Garba-led which affirmed President Buhari’s victory at the polls.
More to come.
