Presidential election: Atiku, Obi appeal PEPC verdict in Supreme Court


The Notice of Appeal just filed by the lead counsel to the appellants, Chief Chris Uche (SAN), is praying the Supreme Court to set aside the whole findings and conclusions of the PEPC on the grounds that they did not represent the true picture of the grounds of his petition.

In a further alternative, Atiku and his party want the Supreme Court to nullify the February 25 presidential election, order a fresh election, and make any other order that the court may seem fit to make in the interest of justice.

“Obi and LP’s team of lawyers led by Dr Livy Uzokwu SAN beat the deadline for the filing of the Appeal and are approaching the apex court on 51 grounds, which they termed an error in law, to prove that the All Progressives Congress, APC Presidential Candidate in the election, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, did not win the election.

It would be recalled that the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party has said in Onitsha that he has instructed his lawyers to petition the Supreme Court over the judgement that did not favour the Labour Party on its petition before the Presidential Election Tribunal that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate did not win the February 25 Presidential election.

The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party are pursuing a legal challenge against the judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) regarding the 2023 Nigerian presidential election.
