Why We Dissmised Atiku's Appeal - Supreme Court

The Supreme court on Friday gave reasons why it dismissed the appeal filed by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakara, challenging the verdict of the Presidential Election Tribunal which upheld the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 presidential election.

The Supreme Court held that the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate in the last presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, failed to prove their claim that INEC had a server and that it transmitted election results electronically.

The court, while giving reasons for dismissing the appeal says they were wrong to have relied on results from a website whose owner could not be established.

According to Justice Inyang Okoro, the results, calculations and analysis based on the results claimed, are of no moment.

The court also resolved issue 3 against the appellant.
