Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election, has filed a Supreme Court appeal, contesting the judgment handed down by the Presidential Election Petition Court.

This action follows the tribunal’s confirmation of Bola Tinubu’s victory in the 2023 presidential election and the subsequent dismissal of the petition brought forward by Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) and the Allied Peoples Movement (APM).

In Atiku’s Notice of Appeal, which comprises 35 grounds, it is argued that the tribunal, presided over by Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani, committed significant errors that resulted in a miscarriage of justice in its findings regarding the petition challenging Tinubu’s presidency as declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
