BREAKING: Supreme Court affirms Tinubu’s victory

The chairperson of a seven-member panel of the Supreme Court, Justice John Okoro, has affirmed the election of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It was learnt that Okoro affirmed Tinubu’s victory on Thursday while dismissing the appeals against the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPT) judgment in favour of Tinubu.

Recall that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential flag-bearer  of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had appealed to contest the tribunal judgement that upheld Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 general election.

The tribunal had held that the PDP candidate failed to plead the facts of his case beyond a reasonable doubt while also dismissing the drug trafficking claims by the Labour Party.
