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

The Supreme Court held that the Peoples and its candidate in the last presidential election, 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.
