The Supreme Court of Nigeria has dismissed the application by Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to admit fresh evidence in his appeal against President Bola Tinubu for lack of jurisdiction.
The apex court said Atiku’s petition was a friendly joke. It insisted that the petition could not be granted.
However, the Supreme Court said it has no jurisdiction to entertain the fresh evidence as the time limit allowed by the constitution has elapsed.
At the time of filing this report, the judgment was still ongoing.
